Ogier promotes two within investment funds team in Cayman


Law firm Ogier has promoted two within its investment funds partnership team in Cayman.

Joanne Huckle and Piers Dryden were both previously part of the Cayman investment funds team and will take the firm’s global partnership to 54.

Huckle advises Ogier’s investment funds clients on open and closed-ended mutual fund and private equity fund structures.

She also has experience advising on international corporate transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, IPOs, rights issues, Islamic bond issues and restructurings.

Dryden currently works in Jersey, leading Ogier’s Cayman law offering in the European timezone.

He also brings experience in advising on corporate matters, including for public and private mergers and acquisitions, corporate restructurings, joint ventures and rights issues.

In addition, Dryden has advises on the full process of launching private equity funds, utilising cryptocurrency and blockchain technology.

The appointment of the pair follows the arrival of partner Anthony Partridge in February, and the promotion of James Heinicke from the Cayman fund finance team to the partnership last year.

James Bergstrom, head of Ogier's Cayman office, said: "Our strategic growth in Cayman continues, and these promotions are well-deserved recognition of these individuals' contributions to the success of our leading investment funds team and their commitment to excellence in client service.

"The promotions of Piers Dryden and Joanne Huckle underline not just their own development and performance but also Ogier's commitment to attracting, developing and rewarding the very best legal talent."
