Walkers expansion in Guernsey is continuing at pace, with associates Jessica George, Pascalle Palmer and Chris Knowles joining in the past month.

Jessica and Pascalle join from Kirkland & Ellis and DLA Piper respectively, and further strengthen Walkers' top-tier ranked Banking & Finance Practice Group led by partners Zoe Hallam, Kim Paiva and Sam Shires.

Jessica trained with Clifford Chance in London before spending a number of years in the debt finance team of Kirkland & Ellis in London.

Pascalle trained and qualified with DLA Piper in Birmingham, and advises on a range of real estate financing, asset finance and fund financing matters.

Chris has joined Walkers from Allen & Overy in London, and advises on investment fund, corporate and regulatory matters. His arrival further strengthens Walkers' Investment Funds & Corporate Practice Group led by partners Kate Storey and Matt Sanders.

Walkers' Guernsey Managing Partner Matt Sanders said: "To be able to bring in talent from leading onshore firms such as Kirkland & Ellis, Allen & Overy and DLA Piper demonstrates the pull not just of Walkers as a leading offshore law firm, but also Guernsey as a leading offshore jurisdiction. We are very pleased to attract associates of such high calibre, and we look forward to helping them develop their careers in the firm."
