Leading offshore law firm Carey Olsen has appointed Jasmine Amaria as a Cayman Islands and British Virgin Islands (BVI) corporate partner in its London office.
Amaria, who joins from the London office of another offshore law firm, specialises in both Cayman Islands and BVI corporate law. She has significant experience in investment funds and corporate and finance matters, with a particular emphasis on fund formation and ongoing corporate transactions and financing activities, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, shareholder arrangements and group reorganisations and restructurings. Prior to moving offshore, Amaria spent nine years at Slaughter and May, where she trained and qualified.
She is recognised in the most recent editions of Chambers and Partners’ Global and UK guides, described by sources as ‘super-efficient’, ‘super-knowledgeable’ and someone who ‘can field a wide range of queries and has a far-reaching understanding of many aspects of international law’. She is also ranked as a private funds expert by Who’s Who Legal.
Nick Bullmore, a corporate partner in the Cayman Islands office, says: “There has been significant client and intermediary demand for our Cayman Islands and BVI legal services to be provided on the ground in London and we are delighted to be able to respond to that demand with someone of Jasmine’s calibre. Jasmine is a truly impressive lawyer with a strong reputation in the London market, and we look forward to building out a leading London-based Cayman Islands and BVI team around her.”
