Walkers London Celebrates 20th Anniversary

Walkers is pleased to announce that its London office is celebrating its 20th anniversary. Walkers was first established in the Cayman Islands in 1964. In 2001 Walkers London was established as Walkers' first international office. The success of the London office launch heralded a succession of further offices: BVI (2002), Hong Kong (2003), Dubai (2005), Jersey (2006), Singapore (2009), Ireland (2010), Bermuda (2016) and Guernsey (2016). Through its 10 strategically located offices, Walkers provides a unique global jurisdictional offering to service the needs of its international client base.

In recognition of London's key role in the global financial services economy, Walkers has placed its London offering at the heart of its strategic offering. As well as being widely acclaimed as the pre-eminent offshore law firm in London, Walkers is the largest offshore legal offering in London (with 100 colleagues) enabling us to bring unparalleled insight into global trends and market practice.

Walkers London based team delivers time zone sensitive Cayman, BVI and Bermuda law support to clients in the EMEA region. The London office is a key conduit for clients as it is the focal point of Walkers' European services, which includes market-leading practices in Ireland, Jersey and Guernsey. Walkers is a panel firm for the great majority of leading global financial institutions and clients include private equity houses, sovereign wealth funds, leading global corporations, capital markets participants, investment funds managers, family offices and (ultra) high net worth individuals.

The London office enjoys a position of pre-eminence within the market and has been lauded by the legal directories - with each of Chambers & Partners and Legal 500 consistently awarding Walkers London office with top Tier 1 rankings for its Cayman law and BVI law practices.

"Walkers' global reach is a significant advantage". "The super-responsive, professional and hard-working team at Walkers continues to enjoy its position at the very top of the market" - Chambers and Partners

Commenting on the 20th anniversary, Managing Partner Jack Boldarin said: "It is a great privilege to work with my talented colleagues and to be at the helm for this 20th anniversary year. Walkers London office has enjoyed enormous success over its life span and we continue to be tremendously supported by our EMEA client base. In response to that client demand we have increased our headcount by 100% in the last 36 months and expanded our service lines to better meet the needs of our client base. It is no surprise that we have been recognised by the leading directories as the premier offshore law firm operating in the City of London. We look forward to the challenges and successes of the next 20 years."

"Walkers has a privileged position among pre-eminent offshore practices by way of its long history of cross-border undertakings and the high calibre of its lawyers" - Chambers and Partners
