Walkers (Jersey) Team News

Leading law firm Walkers is delighted to announce that Marc Seddon has joined the Jersey partnership with effect from 9 November 2017. Marc joined Walkers in 2007 and specialises in commercial litigation and dispute resolution with a particular emphasis on company and trust disputes.

Walkers is also pleased to announce that on 9 November, each of Robert Dobbyn, Guy Morris and Marc Seddon were all sworn in as Advocates of the Royal Court of Jersey having successfully passed all seven of the required Jersey advocacy exams. Their success maintains Walkers' 100% first time pass rate in the Jersey legal exams, and its high ratio of Jersey qualified lawyers.

Jonathan Heaney, Jersey's Managing Partner offered "many congratulations to Guy, Marc and Robert on their success in the Jersey advocacy exams. We are thrilled that their hard work and dedication has paid off. I am also delighted that Marc has agreed to join our growing Jersey partnership. He is a great asset to the firm and its clients, and will continue to develop our outstanding litigation practice."

Carla Plater has also recently joined as an associate in the firm's thriving wealth structuring group. Carla qualified as an English solicitor with another leading offshore law firm and has experience in drafting settlements, declarations of trust and supplemental trust instruments and providing technical advice on a range of issues relating to Jersey trusts and foundations.

Partner Nigel Weston commented that "we are delighted to see Carla joining the team in Jersey. She is a pleasure to work with, and her expertise and experience will be invaluable in ensuring that our clients continue to receive a first class service from Walkers".

Walkers Expands Euro CLO Team

Expansion of euro CLO team
Walkers is delighted to announce the expansion of our euro CLO offering as a result of a number of recent promotions and new hires. Matt Hedigan joins the Irish office as an Of Counsel after practising in the finance team of a large international law firm; while Morgan Sheehy and Brendan McCauley join Walkers Professional Services as Vice President and Assistant Vice President respectively.

Unique offering for euro CLO market
Walkers, being the only law firm with offices in Ireland, Jersey and Guernsey, is pleased to be in the unique position to offer Irish, Jersey and Guernsey advice to CLO market participants considering their Brexit strategy.

The combination of a Jersey or Guernsey investment fund financing an Irish originator retention vehicle is proving popular for managers establishing risk retention financing platforms. This provides access to Ireland's extensive double tax treaty network for originator vehicles and gives managers scope in terms of capital raising with Jersey and Guernsey being tried and tested jurisdictions for IPOs.

European CLO Summit
Walkers is one of the key sponsors of the European CLO Summit 2017 taking place in London on 2 November (click here for further details) and Garry Ferguson will be speaking on the "CLO Markets in a Regulated Environment" panel.

Garry Ferguson, Philip Paschalides, Noeleen Ruddy and Therese Redmond will be attending the European CLO summit and look forward to an opportunity to catch up at the conference.
