Ogier boosts finance and funds team in Cayman

Thursday, December 07, 2017
Opalesque Industry Update - Two specialists in Banking and Finance and Investment Funds have joined Ogier in Cayman, as part of a period of significant growth for the team.

Debt capital markets and structured finance expert Kristi Green, and hedge funds specialist Emma Sutherland, have both been appointed as Counsel.

Kristi Green brings extensive in-house and private practice experience acting on benchmark listed Eurobond transactions on behalf of investment grade, sub-investment grade and emerging market corporate, financial and sovereign/supranational issuers.

Prior to joining Ogier in 2017, Kristi practised English law at several Magic Circle firms and most recently as a director in the DCM legal team of a leading European global investment bank in London.

Emma Sutherland's background includes extensive work with major financial institutions, hedge fund managers and their onshore counsel advising on the establishment, regulation, corporate governance and ongoing operation of investment funds.

She advises on a broad range of corporate and commercial matters including restructurings, mergers and listing on the Cayman Islands Stock Exchange (CSX). Before joining Ogier in 2017, Emma spent ten years working in the investment funds team of another leading international law firm in the Cayman Islands. 

Angus Davison, partner and head of Ogier's global Banking & Finance team, said: "We are pleased to welcome Kristi and Emma to our Cayman team which is seeing significant growth at the moment, demonstrating our appeal to top quality talent in the industry."
