Walkers in Bermuda recognised by Legal 500
The 2020 Legal 500 Caribbean guide has highlighted law firm Walkers in Bermuda, ranking the firm in four practice areas and recognising six lawyers.
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.
Mr Betts said: “It is great to see that the hard work and commitment that my colleagues give to our clients is being recognised in the market.”
He added: “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 band 2 rankings for three practice areas -- banking, finance and capital markets; corporate and commercial; and dispute resolution.
Walkers also entered the Bermuda insurance/reinsurance rankings at the first attempt off the back of strong growth in that area led by Mr Dunlop and partner Sarah Demerling, the firm said.
Mr Taylor said: “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.
“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.”
