Advocate Adam Cole has joined Walkers’ Guernsey Insolvency & Dispute Resolution team as a lateral partner hire from another island firm.
Adam joins partners Alison Ozanne and Sarah Brehaut in the team, which last year saw the arrival of senior associate Helena Lavin along with associate Laurent Thibeault’s admission as a Guernsey Advocate.
Adam is the latest in a line of lateral partner hires in Walkers’ Guernsey team – Advocate Kate Storey joined the firm’s Investment Funds team just over a year ago, and group partner Rajah Abusrewil joined the Private Capital & Trusts team in early 2019.
The firm’s expansion in Guernsey has seen headcount grow significantly in the last two years.
Alison Ozanne, who leads Walkers’ Guernsey Insolvency & Dispute Resolution team, said: “We are delighted to welcome Adam to the team. He has made his mark as a litigator in Guernsey and to be recognised by both leading directories demonstrates the strength of his reputation in the market.
“His specialism in contentious insolvency and trusts matters fits very neatly with our practice, which continues to grow in terms of capacity, reputation and market share.”
Adam said: “I am delighted to be joining not just a very highly-regarded international law firm, but also a very well-regarded Insolvency & Dispute Resolution team here in Guernsey.
“I look forward to working with Alison, Sarah and the rest of the team, as Walkers continues its international growth strategy.”
