Ogier promotes eight in its Cayman team


15 February 2019

Cayman Islands

Ogier has promoted six Caymanians in a round of eight New Year promotions spanning its legal, corporate administration and business services teams.

Cayman practice partner James Bergstrom said: "I am proud to see that our commitment to developing local talent continues to bear fruit.

"This cohort of rising stars has made a mark on the firm as we continue to grow our team in response to client demand.

"It is particularly rewarding to see a graduate of our articled clerk programme included in the list of promotions, and to see our people from all levels and disciplines within Ogier being recognised for their hard work and taking on increased responsibilities."

The promoted members of the Ogier team is as follows:

Ben Gillooly becomes a director of Ogier Global, Ogier's corporate administration business. As one of Ogier Global's six-strong team of directors, Ben specialises in directorship services. An experienced Cayman Attorney with a background in the investment funds and asset management industry advising major financial institutions, hedge fund managers and their onshore counsel in a wide range of jurisdictions, Ben is also Counsel within Ogier's investment funds team.

Cline Glidden, who has been instrumental in helping to develop Ogier's Local Legal Services offering, becomes Senior Associate. Cline has established great relationships with key clients of the firm, advising on mergers and acquisitions, real estate, property law, project development and employment and immigration. Well-known in the Cayman Islands as a former elected member of the Legislative Assembly, Cline is still involved in the local community through Ogier's charity commitments.

William Jones began his career with Ogier as an articled clerk in 2003. Now a key senior attorney in Ogier's Cayman dispute resolution team, he has been promoted to Counsel. Will continues to develop a strong and varied practice, specializing in restructuring and insolvency, and trust disputes. He also has a strong local insurance litigation practice, with clients saying that he is "a trusted advisor and key resource in the jurisdiction".

Kayla Thompson, joined Ogier Global last year in an administrative role as one of Ogier's youngest employees. She has been undertaking professional development, has been coached and mentored by her team and now becomes Trainee Junior Corporate Administrator.

Aveana Watler, who has been with Ogier for 12 months, has proven herself to be a dependable and diligent team player within Ogier's Cayman-based support team. She has become skilled in supporting Ogier's Investment Funds team and now progresses from a trainee to an Executive Legal Secretary.

Amy Bodden, who has been promoted to Legal Assistant, has been a valued member of Ogier's support team for eight years. A wealth of knowledge developed as an Executive Legal Secretary supporting Ogier's funds teams means she is perfectly positioned to take up the new challenge of supporting Cline Glidden and helping to develop Ogier's growing Local Legal Services.

Alongside the six Caymanians, Nylah Rampersad, a Cayman RERC holder, who manages a team of three and has been instrumental in implementing significant process improvements at Ogier becomes Finance Manager, and Ross Wilding, who recently returned to the UK and is supporting Ogier's 'Cayman in Europe' offering, becomes Senior Associate.
