Walkers adds partner to its Cayman Islands regulatory team


International law firm Walkers has appointed Lucy Frew as a partner to head up the regulatory team in its Cayman Islands office, as part of a continued expansion strategy for the firm.

Frew brings 15 years of financial regulatory experience having previously worked as head of financial regulatory at Kemp Little in London and as in-house legal counsel at UBS AG. Frew was also seconded to the UK Financial Conduct Authority for eight months.

Frew has a broad expertise advising leading and international institutions as well as startups in both private practice and as in-house legal counsel and has particular experience advising investment funds and cross border business on financial regulation.

"We are very pleased that Lucy has agreed to join our team. Her expertise and experience will enhance our already strong global Regulatory team and we look forward to welcoming Lucy to Walkers," said Antonia Hardy, Walkers’ Cayman office managing partner.

Frew said: "I’m delighted to be joining Walkers and look forward to working with expert colleagues across the global network. Walkers' excellent reputation, consistent top tier rankings and unparalleled client base provide an exceptional platform from which to provide dedicated financial regulatory and risk management expertise to clients."

The hiring of Frew follows the appointment of partner Eoin O’Connor from Arthur Cox, earlier this year to head Walkers’ regulatory team in Ireland.
