New Group Partner at Walkers

Walkers has appointed its fourth new partner in 18 months.

Leanne Wallser's appointment to Group Partner comes after the relocation of Fraser Hern from the firm's Singapore office, the hire of Nigel Sanders from another leading offshore firm, and Christopher Reed's promotion to the partnership.

Overall, headcount across the Jersey office has increased by more than a third in the last year.

Jonathan Heaney, Managing Partner, said: "We are delighted that Leanne has joined us, her arrival means that we now have three specialist investment funds partners in the team, supported by an excellent bench of associates and senior counsel.

"The growth we have seen in the last 18 months shows our confidence in the jurisdiction – we're investing in our growth here and in Guernsey because we see enormous potential in the Islands, and consistent client demand."

Ms Wallser added: "I am delighted to be joining the Walkers' Jersey team at what is clearly an exciting time, and to be playing a part in developing the investment funds practice.
"Walkers has a renowned global investment funds team with an enviable client base and I look forward to building on this further.”
