Conyers partner defects to Walkers

Offshore law firm Walkers has added to its London office with the hire of a partner from rival Conyers Dill & Pearman. Stephen Pollard has joined the firm’s City office, where he will advise on Cayman and British Virgin Islands (BVI) funds and corporate matters. Before joining Conyers in 2003, Pollard was a partner in Allen & Overy‘s corporate department. He is the fifth lawyer to join Walkers’ London office over the past year. “The growth of the London office illustrates Walkers’ ongoing commitment to client service,” said Walkers BVI office managing partner Heidi de Vries.
