Walkers’ growth in the Channel Islands continues with three new arrivals in the last month in the firm’s Investment Funds, Corporate and Listings teams.
Ellen Jarvis and Ruth Donnellan have joined the firm’s Jersey office as associates in the Investment Funds & Corporate law team, while Anna Slusarczyk has joined the Guernsey office as a Listings Assistant in the TISE-focused pan-Island listings team.
Matthew Allen, who joined the Jersey Banking & Finance team in September, has also progressed to associate after formally qualifying as a Solicitor of Northern Ireland.
Jonathan Heaney, the managing partner of Walkers’ Jersey office, said: “Our investment and growth here in the Channel Islands is continuing, and we are very pleased to welcome Ellen, Ruth and Anna on board, and to congratulate Matthew on his admission.
“2019 has been a great year for our team – we have welcomed four new partners in the Channel Islands through a mix of lateral hires and promotions, and we have also seen growth in client inquiries and instructions.
“We look forward to making more announcements in due course, and to continuing our recruitment activity in 2020.”
Ellen joins Walkers from another leading offshore law firm in Jersey – she focuses on cross-border M&A and finance transactions, and is admitted in the Isle of Man.
Ruth is admitted in Ireland, and spent three years on the corporate law team of a large commercial law firm in Ireland before joining Walkers.
Anna was a Senior Analyst at TISE before joining Walkers’ Listings Team in Guernsey as a Listings Assistant in the Guernsey office – the Walkers team has increased its market share as a listings sponsor on TISE, and is now the third-ranked sponsor.
