Collas Crill has appointed experienced litigator Jennifer Colegate to its dispute resolution team in Cayman.
Colegate joins the firm as a senior associate, specialising in cross-border insolvency and restructuring.
She has extensive experience advising on various issues arising in complex cross-border insolvencies, most notably arising from her engagement by the provisional liquidators to a number of Lehman Brothers entities in the Asia-Pacific region.
Prior to moving to Cayman, Colegate worked at Mayer Brown JSM, Hong Kong in its Asian restructuring team. Before moving to Hong Kong in 2012, Colegate was a senior associate in London specialising in contentious insolvency matters, having joined Mayer Brown International LLP in 2007 following completion of pupillage at South Square Chambers.
In addition to her time in private practice, Colegate has spent extended periods of time on secondment to banking clients in both London and Hong Kong.
Partner Stephen Leontsinis, who heads up the dispute resolution team in Cayman, said: "I am extremely pleased to welcome Jennifer to the team. I have no doubt that her extensive experience will prove to be a great asset to the Dispute Resolution team in Cayman as it continues to expand."
