Three Ogier associates admitted to bar


Ogier’s newest associates Graeme Loarridge, Melanie McKernan and Richard Parrish have all been admitted to the Cayman Bar.

The trio have all joined Ogier’s Cayman team since January, amongst a total of 11 new hires in 2019 to date.

Loarridge has several years’ experience advising on corporate matters including mergers and acquisitions, private equity investments and corporate governance – he is qualified in Scotland and has experience owning and operating a business in the digital sector.

McKernan has been admitted in Australia since 2011 – she is focused on insolvency and banking-related disputes, having experience of litigation in private practice, work as a judge’s associate and has also as an in-house lawyer within an international commercial bank.

Parrish has practised in Australia for seven years – he worked in the disputes team at an Australian firm, where he primarily focused on the institution, conduct and defence of contentious insolvency and restructuring litigation on behalf of Liquidators.

James Bergstrom, Ogier’s practice partner in Cayman, said: “We are pleased to welcome Graeme, Melanie and Richard to the firm – they each bring with them experience of working on international matters, and particularly in the areas of restructuring and insolvency-focused disputes and corporate governance advice.

“Our team continues to grow in response to client demand, and we expect to make further announcements in respect of recruitment in the coming weeks.”
