Four retiring professionals honoured

Four retiring professionals who have made a significant contribution to insolvency and restructuring work in Bermuda were honoured in an event at the Hamilton Princess and Beach Club.

Chief Justice Ian Kawaley, Justice Stephen Hellman, Registrar of Companies Stephen Lowe and Robin Mayor, partner at Conyers Dill and Pearman, are all retiring from professional life this year.

The Restructuring and Insolvency Professionals Association held an event in the Trudeau Ballroom on June 13 to recognise their contributions, attended by more than 50 prominent members of the legal, accounting and business professional community who are members of Risa Bermuda.

Mike Morrison, the chairman of Risa, said: “These four individuals have contributed a huge amount to the insolvency and restructuring profession in Bermuda and are regarded by the international insolvency and restructuring community as experts in their field. Risa, and Bermuda in general, has been very fortunate to have professionals of this calibre working in the insolvency and restructuring industry in Bermuda.”

Chief Justice Kawaley spoke at the event and highlighted how he and the other retirees had worked on some important international insolvency cases together.

The event also featured an educational session conducted by Freshfields, an international law firm, with Neil Golding, restructuring partner in the UK, and Madlyn Primoff, restructuring partner in New York, presenting on Brexit, UK creditor voluntary arrangements and schemes of arrangement and the latest developments in the Chapter 15 process in the United States.

Risa was formed in June 2015 to promote the support and development of the insolvency and restructuring industry in Bermuda and to undertake any activity which may be conducive or incidental to the support and development of the insolvency and restructuring industry, including promoting the awareness of any opportunities within the profession within the educational establishment of Bermuda.
