Walkers appoints Senior Counsel


Walkers has appointed a specialist in cross-border financial disputes and commercial litigation to its local Insolvency and Dispute Resolution team as Senior Counsel.

Matthew Dibb joins the firm from Addleshaw Goddard's top-tier Banking Litigation team.

"We are delighted to welcome Matt to the team – his onshore experience covers the broad range of the kind of work that we see here, running from strategic investigations for large financial institutions in the regulatory sphere, to matters relating to breach of trust, breach of fiduciary duty, fraud, and professional negligence," Partner Nigel Sanders, the head of the team, said.

"Our Insolvency and Dispute Resolution Practice Group has been very busy over the last six months and is expecting this level of activity to continue right through 2021, so Matt's arrival is very well-timed."

Fraser Hern, the Head of Walkers' Channel Islands business, added: "Matt's experience advising major international banking groups and other institutional clients is every bit as relevant to offshore law as it is to onshore, and makes him a particularly good fit for Walkers, with our uniquely global outlook and collaborative approach across jurisdictions.

"We are very pleased to welcome him to the team, as we expect activity levels in the Insolvency and Dispute Resolution area to continue to increase. We look forward to making further announcements about Walkers' continued growth in the coming weeks."
