Walkers expands with new partners across global network


Walkers has invited a number of lawyers across its global network to join the partnership, as the firm expands further in key markets to support the continued growth and requirements of its clients.

Six highly experienced individuals have been promoted to partner across five of Walkers’ international offices. With promotions in all of the firm’s main practice areas, this represents a significant expansion for Walkers, taking the firm’s total number of partners to 59.
Walkers’ new partners collectively represent some 75 years of legal experience and the promotions take place in the following jurisdictions and practice groups:
British Virgin Islands: Julie Engwirda – partner, dispute resolution
Cayman Islands: Matthew Goucke – partner, dispute resolution; Melissa Lim – partner, investment funds
Dublin: Andrew Traynor – partner, finance & corporate
London: Jasmine Amaria – partner, investment funds
Singapore: Laura Rogers – partner, investment funds
"A hallmark of Walkers since it was founded almost 50 years ago has been our expertise across different practice areas, which enables us to exceed our clients’ expectations in today’s multi-jurisdictional environment,” says Ingrid Pierce (pictured), global managing partner with Walkers. “Great client service is only possible with great talent. I’m confident that Walkers is well positioned to continue as one of the leading International Financial Centre law firms by continuing our strategy of investing in the industry’s best people.”
In addition to the new partners, six associates across Walkers’ network have been promoted to the role of senior counsel. The new senior counsel appointments – or relevant local equivalent – are as follows:
British Virgin Islands: Oliver Clifton – senior counsel, dispute resolution
Cayman Islands: Rupert Bell – senior counsel, dispute resolution; Nick Dunne – senior counsel, dispute resolution; Shelley White – senior counsel, dispute resolution
Dublin: Aaron McGarry – of counsel, asset finance
Hong Kong: Paul Aherne – counsel, finance & corporate
