Taylor succeeds Marshall as MD of law firm
Law firm Marshall Diel & Myers has appointed Kevin Taylor to managing director, succeeding Timothy Marshall who previously held the position as well as having been managing partner for the firm over the last 25 years.
As the founder of the firm, Mr Marshall will continue his practice with Marshall Diel & Myers Limited as one of the senior directors.
During his tenure, Mr Marshall brought together a team of lawyers with local and international knowledge and experience while building the firm into one of the leading litigation and commercial practices in Bermuda.
The firm said Mr Marshall would continue in his commitment to training and investing in the next generation of attorneys and providing them with a real opportunity to guide and shape the future of Marshall Diel & Myers.
“I have really enjoyed my 25 years as managing director of Marshall Diel & Myers Ltd,” said Mr Marshall. “I have the same feeling as a parent who attends a college graduation. I feel a great deal of pride and satisfaction when I see all that has been accomplished, but there is a bit of sadness with letting go. It’s time for the next generation of attorneys at Marshall Diel & Myers Limited to lead the firm forward and Kevin Taylor is the perfect choice to assume the position of managing director. We have worked closely over the last year on this transition and. Kevin is more than ready to take on the responsibilities of running the firm.”
After being called to the Ontario Bar in 2001, Mr Taylor began his commercial litigation practice in Toronto, Canada in 2001, making numerous appearances before the Ontario Superior Court of Justice and the Court of Appeal for Ontario.
Upon his arrival in Bermuda in 2004, he continued his commercial litigation practice and joined Marshall Diel & Myers Ltd as a senior associate in 2008. He regularly appears before the registrar and judges in the Supreme Court of Bermuda and before the Court of Appeal for Bermuda.
He was appointed a director of the firm in January 2012.
“I would like to thank Tim Marshall for his outstanding leadership and guidance of the firm over the past 25 years,” said Mr Taylor. “Tim built the firm from the ground up and has been the driving force in its successful development and growth. Whilst he has decided it is time for him to pass on the role of managing director, we are very pleased that he will continue to provide his invaluable knowledge and experience to the firm and its clients as a senior director.
“I am also particularly pleased that the firm is dedicated to expanding its student programme. We are welcoming applications for a summer student and a pupil in 2013, and have instituted an annual Legal Scholarship Award. We remain committed to playing a role in the training and development of Bermuda’s next generation of attorneys.”
