Ogier's multi-disciplinary Dispute Resolution and Restructuring and Corporate Recovery teams have continued to grow, and have recently been strengthened with the addition of Christopher Levers and Paul Goss in the Cayman Islands.
Over the past year, the Global DR team has grown to a total of 85 as it continues to develop and cater for clients.
The Cayman team, who were described as "on top of their game" and as "incredibly thoughtful and incredibly productive" in the Chambers Global 2021 guide, has also experienced a strong period of growth with a 40% increase in the team compared to July 2020.
Counsel Christopher Levers, who was recognised as a "Rising Star" by Legal 500 (2020 and 2021) and described as "up and coming" by Chambers Global, specialises in contentious and non-contentious restructuring and insolvency proceedings. He also has significant experience with contentious trust disputes, commercial litigation and fund claims involving fraud and breach of duty. Christopher routinely appears before all levels of the Cayman Islands Courts, including the Cayman Islands Court of Appeal and the Privy Council.
Senior associate Paul Goss specialises in contentious and non-contentious restructuring and insolvency work and has significant experience in international disputes and enforcement of rights and information gathering. Paul advises on all types of formal appointments of insolvency officeholders in the Cayman Islands and advises creditors, debtors, private equity and hedge funds, shareholders, investors and other stakeholders in a wide range of litigation and insolvency/restructuring related matters.
Global Head of Dispute Resolution, Marc Kish, said: "Christopher and Paul both bring extensive offshore experience to their roles and are a vital part of the team we are developing. As a firm, our focus is to empower our clients by giving our people the tools to "be extraordinary". As we have grown, our offering in Cayman has attracted real strength in depth that improves our client service at every level."
