Walkers' Jersey Insolvency & Dispute Resolution team strengthened by Associate hire

Associate Craig de Bruyn has joined Walkers' Insolvency & Dispute Resolution practice group in Jersey.

Craig – who trained with an international law firm in South Africa – joins the team led by partners Nigel Sanders, Marc Seddon and Richard Holden and group partner Fraser Hern.

Walkers' global Insolvency & Dispute Resolution team is the leading offshore restructuring practice – the firm is ranked in the top ten of all law firms by GRR, and is the highest ranked offshore firm.

The growing Jersey team has and is acting on a number of the most significant insolvency and restructuring matters in the Channel Islands (also in tandem with the market leading Guernsey team).  The team also specialises in complex contentious trusts and commercial litigation matters, including regulatory disputes and its Advocates appear regularly before the Royal Court.

Nigel Sanders said: "We are very pleased to welcome Craig on board – he has directly relevant onshore experience from Hogan Lovells (South Africa) Inc and from a boutique firm in Johannesburg.

"In particular, his expertise in contentious restructuring and insolvency matters – including enforcement, creditor claims and directors' duties in distressed situations – are relevant to a growing area of client inquiries and instructions that we have seen in the past few months."

Jonathan Heaney, the managing partner of Walkers' Jersey office, added: "Our growth continues with new hires right across our core practice areas. Craig is a very welcome addition to our busy Insolvency & Dispute Resolution practice group, which continues to see a steady rise in instructions across trusts disputes, insolvency matters and litigation."
