The 2020 Legal 500 Caribbean guide has highlighted Walkers
continuing success in Bermuda. Ranked in four practice areas, six
Walkers lawyers have been individually recognised.
Managing partner Kevin Taylor was identified as a "Leading Individual" within the Dispute Resolution practice area and partner Jonathan Betts was ranked as a "Leading Individual" in both the Corporate and Commercial and the Banking, Finance and Capital Markets practice areas.
Partners Natalie Neto and Peter Dunlop were nominated as "Next Generation Partners" for their respective Corporate and Commercial and Insurance/Reinsurance practices. Senior counsel Paul Nystrom and senior associate Kai Musson were both ranked as "Rising Stars" for their respective banking and dispute resolution practices.
Commenting on the lawyer rankings, Jonathan Betts stated: "It is great to see that the hard work and commitment that my colleagues give to our clients is being recognised in the market. We continue to build a market-leading outfit and with the current bench of talent at our disposal and our plans to grow the future is looking very bright."
Walkers received three Band 2 rankings for each of its Bermuda Banking, Finance and Capital Markets, Corporate and Commercial and Dispute Resolution practices. Walkers also entered the Bermuda Insurance/Reinsurance rankings at the first attempt off the back of strong growth in that area led by Peter Dunlop and partner Sarah Demerling.
"Since the Bermuda office opened in 2016, we have been dedicated to growing our Bermuda capabilities through the hiring and nurturing of leading Bermudian talent," commented Managing partner Kevin Taylor. "The fact that we now see ourselves featuring in four separate Legal 500 practice categories, including Bermuda's world-renowned re/insurance market, is very pleasing."
