Cayman Islands: Arikka Farley Wins RISA 2016 Rising Star Award
Last Updated: 20 December 2016

Walkers is pleased to announce that, having seen off competition from both law firms and accountancy practices island-wide, Arikka Farley has received the 2016 Rising Star Award from the Restructuring and Insolvency Specialists Association ("RISA") in the Cayman Islands. RISA is INSOL's Cayman Islands chapter. Each year members are invited to nominate individuals for the RISA Awards which, in addition to the Rising Star Award, include Lawyer and Accountant of the Year. The Rising Star Award is awarded to the most promising Caymanian insolvency lawyer or accountant below three years PQE.

Arikka, who qualified into the Insolvency & Dispute Resolution Group at Walkers after a successful articled clerkship, has already worked on some of the jurisdictions' premier mandates. She has become an integral member of Walkers' internationally recognised, premier insolvency and corporate recovery team.

"Walkers is delighted that Arikka's talents have been recognised in this way by the wider profession at such an early stage in her career and we remain committed to the development and training of our young attorneys in the Cayman Islands," commented Colette Wilkins, partner in Walkers' Insolvency & Dispute Resolution Group.

RISA is a not for profit membership organisation in the Cayman Islands. The aim of the organisation is to promote the strengths of the sector, encourage collaboration and communication and to benefit the Cayman community through charitable pursuits. RISA is a member of the International Association of Restructuring, Insolvency & Bankruptcy Professionals.
