Alex Collis is new counsel at Carey Olsen
Veteran Bermudian lawyer Alex Collis has returned home to join Carey Olsen Bermuda Limited as counsel in the firm's corporate practice.
The firm said Mr Collis has more than a decade of experience in London and Singapore with law firm Watson Farley & Williams, where he trained and qualified as a solicitor.
He focuses on project finance, acting for and advising sponsor companies and lenders on their corporate, loan and security documentation and comes with a broad range of cross-border experience.
Carey Olsen said Mr Collis has particular expertise in the investment and financing of large-scale renewable energy projects, infrastructure and real-estate assets (such as hotels and build-to-rent developments).
Michael Hanson, managing partner of Carey Olsen Bermuda Limited, said: "It is a core strategic objective of our business to entice talent into the Bermuda market, so we are very pleased that Alex decided to make the move from London to join the firm.
“His renewable energy and project finance background is invaluable and will bolster our service offering, as well as enriching our office culture as a senior member of the team."
Mr Hanson said the firm’s corporate department is now its fastest-growing team in Bermuda, with the addition of six attorneys over the past 12 months.
Mr Collis said: "Carey Olsen Bermuda Limited enjoys a fantastic reputation from a client service and internal culture perspective, so for me it was the clear choice when returning home.
“I am looking forward to working with such a great team and helping the firm grow and achieve its ambitious objectives."
