Competing against a field of all top tier international law firms, Walkers won three practice area titles and Cayman Islands Law Firm of the Year in the country and state categories.
Walkers was named Asset Recovery Law Firm of the Year and Restructuring & Insolvency Law Firm of the Year, both for the second year running, and Best Commercial Litigation Firm for the first time.
These titles reinforce Walker's reputation as the premier global restructuring, insolvency and corporate recovery practice advising on offshore jurisdictions. The firm's dedicated teams in each of its 10 offices across the Americas, Europe, Asia and the Middle East, offer Bermuda, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Guernsey, Irish and Jersey legal advice on all aspects of restructuring, insolvency, corporate recovery, litigation and dispute resolution.

Our talented international team of lawyers across our 10 offices work hard for our clients every single day. We are proud that clients trust our ability to advise them on their most complex, ground breaking, cross-border cases involving offshore jurisdictions."
