Legal market overview

Bermuda remains one of the top reinsurance centres in the world and a leading market for insurance linked securities products.

Caribbean firms expanding into Bermuda included British Virgin Islands (BVI)-headquartered practice Harneys opening an office in September 2015; it combined with Bermuda hedge fund litigation boutique Hurrion & Associates, whose former name partner Sarah-Jane Hurrion is now the firm’s Bermuda head of litigation and insolvency. Jayson Wood also joined the office, relocating from Harneys’ Cayman Islands (Cayman) office. Additionally, Cayman-based Walkers Cayman opened up in Bermuda in January 2016 and is operating under the name of Taylors in association with Walkers with former Marshall Diel & Myers managing director Kevin Taylor as its managing partner. Jonathan Betts also joined the practice from Cox Hallett Wilkinson Limited.

Conyers Dill & Pearman appointed Sophia Greaves and Niel Jones as directors while Appleby made contentious employment law specialist Michael Hanson partner. Notable departures included Appleby’s former group transport and logistics head (within the corporate department) Timothy Counsell retiring and former non-contentious insurance expert Janita Burke joining the firm’s fiduciary business, Estera.
