BVI banking and finance specialist Christian Burns-Di Lauro has become a partner at Ogier.
Christian, who joined Ogier in 2014, has worked in Ogier’s BVI, Cayman and Jersey offices. As part of the international firm’s Banking and Finance team he represents a wide range of financial institutions and companies on banking, finance and restructuring transactions.
With a strong focus on real estate finance, derivative transactions and non-contentious and consensual insolvency and credit restructuring, clients value Christian for his understanding of complex cross-border transactions.
Simon Schilder, who heads Ogier’s BVI in Europe team, said: “Christian becomes the second full time BVI partner practising in the non-contentious areas of the wider BVI Europe team at Ogier, supplementing our other BVI Europe partners who split their practices between BVI law and the law of their home jurisdiction.
“I am very pleased that Christian’s promotion recognises the development and growth of our BVI legal practice in Europe and the importance of banking and finance work within this practice.”
His promotion brings the number of partners at Ogier to 80.
