Walkers attracts Fullerton from BMA
Walkers (Bermuda) Limited has boosted its team with Melanie Fullerton joining the firm as a senior associate in the Bermuda Regulatory & Risk Advisory practice.
She was formerly with the Bermuda Monetary Authority, where she was a senior officer for legal services, policy and enforcement. Prior to the BMA, she practised for five years in the corporate team of Bermuda law firm Cox Hallett Wilkinson Ltd.
Working in concert with Walkers' global Regulatory & Risk Advisory Group, Ms Fullerton's role will involve advising clients on all aspects of existing and new regulation that impacts Bermuda, including domestic and international measures.
Walkers' global Regulatory & Risk Advisory Group has grown from two lawyers in 2017 to 15 providing regulatory advice from the Cayman Islands, Ireland, Hong Kong, London and Bermuda offices.
Jonathan Betts, head of Walkers' Bermuda Corporate, Finance & Funds group, said: “Melanie brings with her a strong regulatory understanding of the Bermuda market. Her expertise will greatly benefit our clients and we are thrilled that she is joining our growing team.”
