Leading offshore law firm Walkers is pleased to announce that Nigel Sanders has joined the firm as a partner to help lead Jersey’s Insolvency and Dispute Resolution practice.

Nigel has been practising as a litigation lawyer for 27 years, the last 16 of which have been spent offshore. Nigel first joined Walkers in the firm’s Cayman Islands office in 2003 after a number of years working at two highly regarded firms in London.  He moved to Jersey in 2006 where he ultimately became head of a leading offshore firm’s dispute resolution team.

Nigel brings with him a wealth of experience; he has a broad dispute resolution practice much of which involves cross-border issues. He specialises in representing clients in contentious matters arising in the financial services sector particularly those involving trusts, probate, insolvency, fraud and asset tracing and corporate and commercial disputes. Nigel is also experienced in advising on complex regulatory matters and has assisted clients in responding to regulators’ inspections and investigations and appeared for the regulator in the first competition law appeal in Jersey.

Walker’s Group partner and head of the Channel Islands, Fraser Hern said:

“We are delighted to have Nigel join the team here in Jersey. Nigel stands out for the breadth of his expertise and his ability to perform at a high level in a broad range of practice areas, this coupled with his excellent reputation and network, means that he is an invaluable addition to the Jersey IDR team and as we grow the Walkers Channel Islands offering. “

Commenting on his appointment Nigel Sander added:

I am delighted to have re-joined Walkers which is clearly at an exciting juncture in its growth story. It has a thriving and expanding Channel Islands offering, which is just part of the firm’s already well established and highly regarded global offering. I very much look forward to contributing to the further growth of the business in Jersey and the firm as a whole, and particularly to being part of the already hugely successful Insolvency and Dispute Resolution practice.”
