    Mary Ward: advised on "financial services deal of the year"


Law firm Carey Olsen Bermuda was among the winning advisers for the Financial Services Deal of the Year at The Deal Awards Europe 2019.

Carey Olsen was recognised along with the other advisory teams involved in the $5.6 billion acquisition of Jardine Lloyd Thompson Group plc by Marsh & McLennan Companies, Inc.

Working along side Slaughter and May who were advising MMC as an integrated team with Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz, Carey Olsen advised MMC on the financial regulatory approvals required in connection with the acquisition of JLT in Bermuda, the Cayman Islands, Jersey and Guernsey.

The Carey Olsen team included partner Mary Ward and counsel Adam Bathgate (Bermuda), partner Nick Bullmore and counsel Graham Stoute (Cayman Islands), partner Christopher Anderson and senior associate Arya Hashemi (Guernsey), and partner James Willmott and counsel David Allen (Jersey).

Ms Ward said: “To have been involved in such a notable award-winning deal is a significant endorsement of the M&A and transactional expertise that exists at both Carey Olsen Bermuda and across the Carey Olsen group.”

She added: “We are thrilled to have received this broader market recognition so soon after the launch of our corporate offering in Bermuda.”

Carey Olsen Bermuda, which was named “Best Employer in Bermuda” and also won the “Diversity and Inclusion Award” at last month’s RG Business Top Ten Employer Awards ceremony, this month marks the two-year anniversary of its founding as a firm on-island.
