Before joining Ogier in 2020 Louise worked for the finance team of a large London law firm, where she advised high profile FTSE 100 clients on a broad range of financial transactions and also advised the UK Government on the complex sale and securitisation of legacy mortgage assets to a private investor group for £5.3bn.
She now advises both hedge funds and private equity funds on all aspects of fund formations, terminations and other legal and regulatory issues in Cayman.
After graduating from the University of Edinburgh, Louise achieved a Master of Studies from the University of Oxford before completing her LLB at The University of Law in Moorgate. She completed her training contract at Ashurst LLP where she qualified into the Global Markets team.
Louise takes an active interest in how FinTech is developing across the legal sector. In 2019, she won the International Bar Association's Young Lawyers Programme essay competition with her essay "The ICO is Dead. Long Live the ICO " and went on to be panellist at the IBA International Finance Law Conference in Berlin, discussing the challenges of the interaction between the law and FinTech as it increasingly plays a key role in changing the financial industry.
