Cayman-based offshore law firm Carey Olsen has promoted corporate and finance lawyer Alistair Russell into the partnership.
Russell joined Carey Olsen in 2013, prior to which he was with Skadden, Arps, and Cleary Gottlieb, each in London. Russell works on a broad range of transactions including fund and general finance, private equity, joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions and capital markets.
Jarrod Farley, Managing Partner of Carey Olsen’s Cayman Islands office, said: “The Cayman office has grown rapidly since we opened in 2012 and Alistair has played a key role in the development of our corporate practice. We are delighted to welcome him to the partnership.
“This is an exciting time for Carey Olsen as we grow our international footprint and consolidate our leading position in our established markets.”
Russell said: “It is a pleasure and a privilege to join the partnership, and to continue to have the opportunity to work with such a dynamic, talented and fast-growing team.”
Carey Olsen is one of the largest offshore law firms in the world with 49 partners and 200 lawyers across eight international offices. Over the past 18 months, the firm has opened offices in Singapore and Hong Kong reflecting the growing demand for offshore legal services in Asia and the increasingly international and cross-border nature of the firm’s client base.
