Jan Golaszewski joins Walkers team in London as Insolvency & Dispute Resolution partner

Leading offshore Insolvency & Dispute Resolution lawyer Jan Golaszewski has joined Walkers team in London in a lateral partner hire from another offshore law firm in the City.

Jan joins Walkers London office, which is the sole firm ranked Tier 1 for Cayman law and Tier 1 for BVI law across all ranked areas in both of Chambers and Legal 500 (2023 UK guides).

He joins fellow London based offshore dispute resolution and insolvency partners Fraser Hern, Andrew Chissick and Jennifer Maughan in Walkers Insolvency & Dispute Resolution practice group which is the largest and most senior offshore offering in the UK market.

Jan has 20+ years' experience in private practice as an onshore and offshore disputes lawyer in London, the Caribbean and Asia, specialising in multi-jurisdictional commercial litigation, arbitration and insolvency matters.

He trained and qualified with Freshfields in London and practised in their Hong Kong office before moving to offshore work, spending 13 years in the Cayman Islands before moving back to London in 2021.

Jack Boldarin, the managing partner of Walkers London office, said: "We are delighted to welcome Jan to our team here in London - his record as an adviser on Cayman, Bermuda and BVI law disputes is exemplary, and as we continue to see a steady rise in instructions on insolvency-related matters and enforcements, his arrival is particularly well-timed.

"We continue to build out our team here in London, working in a collaborative and joined up way with colleagues in our Dublin, Jersey and Guernsey offices, and we are increasingly finding that our cross-jurisdictional approach is resonating strongly with clients and intermediaries."

Walkers London team, which now numbers in excess of 200 colleagues, moved recently to new offices in The Scalpel to accommodate growth across legal practice groups - the firm advises on BVI, Cayman and Bermuda law in the City, complementing its offerings in the Americas, Asia and the Middle East.

Walkers global Insolvency & Dispute Resolution team is also the only offshore practice to be ranked in GRR's top ten law firms globally in the restructuring and insolvency field.

Walkers does not practise English or Luxembourg law.  Instead we work alongside leading international law firms to provide integrated offshore and onshore support.
