First Prev 1 2 Next Last

English barrister Claire van Overdijk has joined Carey Olsen Bermuda Limited as counsel in the firm's dispute resolution and litigation team.

The firm said she is an expert in cross border disputes and private international law, and is recognised as a leading figure in jurisdictional issues both in the public law and private client fields.

Ms van Overdijk said: "I am delighted to be joining Carey Olsen at such an exciting time in its continuing growth and development. I also look forward to working with the global dispute resolution and litigation team and contributing to the firm's strong reputation and success in this area."

The firm said Ms van Overdijk has extensive experience of private client practice including contentious trust and estates work and her practice has frequently extended to cross border disputes concerning trusts, estates, foreign succession and domicile.

Prior to joining Carey Olsen, she practised as a barrister at Outer Temple Chambers in London, where she also had a busy public law practice and was ranked in Chambers and Partners.

Keith Robinson, partner in the dispute resolution practice at Carey Olsen Bermuda Limited, said: "Claire is a highly accomplished legal specialist and private client and public law barrister and someone who enjoys a fabulous reputation in the industry. The fact that we have been able to attract such a talented and well-regarded lawyer speaks volumes for the recognised quality and strength of our team and our continuing growth.

"With the significant increase in demand we are seeing for high value, complex multi-jurisdictional disputes, Claire's appointment is both exciting and timely."
