Kristy-Anne Leith – Campbells

Campbells’ corporate and commercial practice provides comprehensive advice on complex, cross-border transactions. Practice head Alan Craig is well-known for his expertise in cross-border corporate finance and M&A transactions, while Richard Spencer‘s focus is on joint ventures, equity capital markets work and corporate finance issues; newly promoted partner Kristy-Anne Leith is also particularly active in the latter, and she also handles fintech transactions, including blockchain projects. With longstanding experience in advising clients on cross-border transactions, senior associate Kate Hewitson is also highly recommended.

Cayman Islands > Investment funds

Sitting within Campbells‘ broader corporate department – which is headed up by Alan Craig – the firm’s fund-focused offering is particularly known for advising on venture capital fund formations, seed capital arrangements, and the subsequent investment cycle; Simon Thomas is the go-to name for such mandates. Regulatory work in the funds space is another key area of strength. In team news, Kristy-Anne Leith was promoted to partner in April 2023.
