Walkers Welcomes Partner Shamar Ennis to the Hong Kong office

Walkers is pleased to announce the addition of Shamar Ennis as a partner in its Finance and Corporate group in Hong Kong.

Shamar relocates from the Firm's Cayman office, having previously been seconded to Hong Kong for two years in 2014.

Shamar has a broad range of experience in corporate and finance advising on Cayman Islands and British Virgin Islands law aspects of leveraged and acquisition financings, structured finance, fund finance and general corporate lending transactions.

"We are delighted to have Shamar back in Hong Kong," said Hong Kong Managing Partner Andy Randall. "She will provide additional firepower to our quality Tier 1 Finance practice, providing solutions for clients in the region. We are seeing steady growth and the increasing use of more sophisticated financial instruments and structures in Asia and Shamar's work with US, Latin America and other financial institutions has provided her with an in-depth understanding of some of the more innovative and complex structures1 being used in North America."

Shamar Ennis adds, "I am excited to be back in Asia and to reconnect with clients and contacts. It is such a vibrant and thriving financial hub and I look forward to supporting its continued growth and evolution over the coming years."

1 Shamar was part of a team who advised Goldman Sachs as lead arranger on two multi-billion financings, the first ever financing backed by a US airline loyalty programme and at the time the largest ever capital markets offering by an airline (view here).
