Walkers is pleased to announce that its Jersey office has been selected as the winner of two key industry awards which demonstrate the high regard in which its international legal services are held.

Walkers has been named as 'International/Cross Border Law Firm of the Year in Jersey' and 'Aviation Law Firm of the Year in Jersey' by Corporate Intl magazine in their 2010 Global Legal Awards.

"We are delighted that Walkers' Jersey office has received this recognition, which is a reflection of our expertise in complex, cross-border financial transactions," commented Nigel Weston, head of Walkers' Finance and Corporate Department in Jersey.

"We pride ourselves on our ability to develop creative and innovative legal solutions for our clients within their commercial parameters," Mr. Weston added.

"With numerous multi-jurisdictional qualified lawyers on the ground, Walkers’ Jersey office is perfectly placed to provide full legal support on the laws of Jersey, the British Virgin Islands and the Cayman Islands from a convenient location in the Channel Islands."

Walkers' Jersey office provides the complete range of contentious and non-contentious Jersey law services, with a particular emphasis on finance and corporate law, funds and other holding and investment structures, private equity, regulatory matters, litigation, real estate and trusts. Walkers' Jersey office also recently expanded its services for listings on the CISX with the recruitment of a dedicated listings manager as part of its all round service to clients.

Corporate Intl's Global Legal Awards 2010 recognise excellence in expertise and service in a difficult economic environment. Shortlisted firms are reviewed by an independent awards panel including senior partners in various professional services firms and the managing editor of the publication.
