Mourant Ozannes boosts litigation team
Mourant Ozannes has strengthened its Litigation practice by recruiting 11 additional litigators in the lead-up to 2013.
The recruitment is to keep up with increased client demand for the firm’s offshore litigation services in the BVI, the Cayman Islands, Guernsey and Jersey.
Four litigators have joined in the Cayman Islands: associates Alexandra Bethell and Amy Bond together with paralegals Tisha Cooper and Claire Doyle, two in Jersey; associate Katie Hooper and paralegal Katie Phillips, and five in Guernsey; associates Rhys Williams, Katherine Beach, Sally French, Chris Duncan and Robin Cowling.
Secondments within the Litigation practice have also led to senior associate Rocco Cecere moving to the Cayman Islands, associate Fleur O’Driscoll moving to the BVI and counsel Nicholas Fox moving to Mourant Ozannes’ office in Hong Kong.
