Andrew began working in the firm's Guernsey office in 2007 before relocating to Carey Olsen in Singapore in 2017. Following a year with one of the leading commercial law firms in Australia, Andrew returns as counsel in Carey Olsen's Singapore corporate and funds practice to provide specialist Cayman Islands and Guernsey legal advice to the firm's growing Asia client base.
Andrew has over 12 years' experience in connection with the structuring, formation and provision of ongoing advice to open-ended and closed-ended collective investment schemes, including private equity, real estate and infrastructure funds and hedge funds. He has also advised upon significant and high value transactions, including court-sanctioned schemes of arrangement, group restructures and migrations. He advises a wide range of fund managers across Asia and Europe.
Anthony McKenzie, Carey Olsen's managing partner in Singapore, said: "Expanding the firm's presence in Asia is key to Carey Olsen's growth strategy and along with the lateral hire of Hong Kong corporate partner Michael Padarin and the subsequent launch of our Hong Kong corporate and finance practice, Andrew's return further strengthens the depth of expertise we can provide our clients and their intermediaries in the region.
"Carey Olsen is the only offshore law firm with a fully-staffed 'Channel Islands desk' in Asia, meaning we can offer our Asia-based clients a complete suite of multi-jurisdictional legal services in their time zone."
Ben Morgan, head of corporate in Carey Olsen's Guernsey office, said: "We are delighted to have Andrew back in the team. His expertise will enable us to service the ever-growing demand for specialist fund, corporate and finance advice in Asia, particularly in respect of complex cross-border transactions."
Carey Olsen recently added Bermuda law capabilities to its Hong Kong office with the relocation of Bermudian dispute resolution and insolvency specialists Henry Tucker and Kyle Masters.
The firm now provides advice in relation to the laws of Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Guernsey and Jersey from its Asia offices supported by 235 lawyers worldwide.
