Jane Walker has returned to Appleby as senior associate, one of two new hires just announced by the law firm.

Also new to the Bermuda office is associate Hailee Forde from New Zealand.

Ms Walker began her legal career in Bermuda with Appleby in 2008 and has been a member of the Bermuda Bar Association since 2009.

She advises clients in both the public and private sectors and has extensive experience in corporate and commercial law, including banking, asset and project finance, aviation finance and registration, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures and corporate restructuring.

Her practice also includes advising on all aspects of carrying on digital asset business in Bermuda and insurance related matters.

She commented: “I am excited to be working with a team of internationally recognised lawyers, at a firm known for providing a world-class service to its clients.”

Meanwhile, Ms Forde practises in all areas of corporate and commercial law.

She worked at top tier New Zealand law firms before moving to Bermuda, focusing on property and development finance, corporate finance, acquisition finance, mergers and acquisitions, corporate restructuring, joint ventures, partnerships, corporate governance and constitutional matters.

Ms Forde is from New Zealand, embracing her latest posting as an opportunity to have a different experience exploring an unfamiliar part of the world.

She said: “Bermuda appealed to me because of the high-quality legal work together with being a beautiful island.

“I knew I wanted to work at Appleby not only because of its stellar offshore reputation, but also because all of the staff I met with during the interview process were incredibly warm and professional.

“I have a background in tax, banking and finance and corporate law so working within the corporate team is a perfect match to my skill set. I am very excited to be part of the team.”

Brad Adderley, Bermuda managing partner, stated: “We are delighted to welcome Jane back to her first home at Appleby, and to welcome Hailee to Bermuda and our growing legal team.

“Their varied and extensive expertise and knowledge will provide valuable support to our colleagues and clients, alike.”
