Walkers Scoops Asset Recovery and Restructuring & Insolvency Awards at 2021 Who's Who Legal Awards

Walkers is pleased to announce that its Global Insolvency & Dispute Resolution ("IDR") Group has won two awards at the recent 2021 Who's Who Legal Awards. Competing in a field of top tier international law firms (both onshore and offshore), Walkers was awarded the trophies for Asset Recovery Law Firm of the Year and Restructuring & Insolvency Law Firm of the Year.

These accolades come on the back of Walkers securing a top ten ranking for restructuring and insolvency legal services for the first time in the latest Global Restructuring Review Top 30 list 2021, placing Walkers in the law firm global elite.

Cayman Islands partner Neil Lupton commented: "I am delighted that our hard working and responsive team has been recognised by peers and the market in this manner. We pride ourselves on our time-sensitive global footprint and are proud to represent many of the largest ongoing cross border matters in the courts."
