Carey Olsen relocating to Rosebank Centre
Law firm Carey Olsen Bermuda has marked its third anniversary with the announcement that it is to move into larger premises at the Rosebank Centre in Hamilton.
Established in November 2017 with a single employee – managing partner Michael Hanson – the firm has more than 35 staff, and has outgrown its offices on Par-la-Ville Road, Hamilton.
The office move is to take place in January.
The firm recently bolstered its dispute resolution, litigation and corporate offering with the appointments of senior associates Emma Duffy and Oliver Wade and associate Alexandra Fox.
Mr Hanson said: "Given where we are now it is hard to believe we are only three years old. We are especially proud to have succeeded in the context of a mature Bermuda legal market, the wider global uncertainties and the regulatory challenges new law firms faced when seeking to establish a presence in Bermuda.”
He added: “We are now firmly placed as one of the leading law firms in the Bermuda market and, despite ambitious growth plans from the outset, we have substantially exceeded all expectations – and our existing office space.
"Emma, Oliver and Alexandra are the latest in a series of recent appointments that reflect the growing demand for our services. Between them, they bring considerable expertise in advising across a broad range of specialisms and we're delighted to have them join us."
The firm said other developments during the organisation’s third year included the launch of corporate service provider business Carey Olsen Services Bermuda Ltd in August, the awarding of the first pupillage training contract in October and, most recently, the addition of family law expertise with the appointment of Honor Desmond-Tetlow as a senior consultant within its private client and dispute resolution teams.
Mr Hanson said: "We've achieved so much in such a short time thanks to the hard work and dedication of our staff and the loyalty and support of our clients.
“The office move in January is the next step in the journey for Carey Olsen Bermuda, and we are very much looking forward to seeing where the following three years takes us."
