On the Move – Alice Wight Joins Walkers in Jersey
February 26, 2021 | Issue No. 115
On the Move

Finance lawyer Alice Wight has joined Walkers' leading Banking & Finance team in Jersey, led by Nigel Weston, Alexandra Corner and Jon Le Rossignol.

Alice has two years' experience in the banking & finance team of another Jersey law firm, and advises on all aspects of fund financing matters, including subscription line facilities, NAV and hybrid facilities, as well as co-invest, general partner and manager line facilities.

Alice’s arrival follows that of Senior Counsel Julia Keppe, based in Jersey, another fund finance specialist who trained and qualified with Debevoise & Plimpton LLP, spending more than 10 years in the firm's London and New York offices. These recent hires are part of the firm’s strategic expansion in Europe and supplement the relocation of fund finance specialists Zoë Hallam, who relocated from the Cayman Islands to Guernsey in 2018, and Patrick Ormond and Carl Hey, who relocated from the BVI to London in 2020. 

Alice will be part of Walkers' Global Fund Finance group that encompasses fund finance specialists from the firm’s offices in Jersey, Guernsey, Ireland, Bermuda, BVI, the Cayman Islands, Dubai, Hong Kong, London and Singapore. 

Fraser Hern, Head of Walkers’ Channel Islands business, commented: "Our European and global expansion has continued at pace throughout the past year notwithstanding the challenges created by the global pandemic. We see significant potential for further growth in multiple sectors and business lines, including in fund financing. We have the leading offshore fund finance team globally, and are very focussed on continuing to deepen our capabilities in this space. We are delighted to have Alice join us.”
