Ogier Promotes Two In The Cayman Islands
Ogier has promoted Emma Sutherland and Tim Cone, both investment funds specialists, to Partner.
Sutherland joined Ogier in 2017 and specialises in the structuring, formation and ongoing operation and regulation of Cayman Islands hedge and private equity structures. In addition to her specialism in hedge funds, Sutherland also regularly advises clients on a broad range of corporate and commercial matters including re-structurings, mergers and listings on the Cayman Islands Stock Exchange.
"Emma has great strength in developing client relationships and has become a trusted advisor for some of our key clients. She has a wealth of experience advising on all aspects of investment funds, having operated in the Cayman funds market for more than 13 years, as well as serving as the firm's AIMA Cayman representative for the past three years. Emma also has great enthusiasm and passion for mentoring our junior funds lawyers, which is core to our firm's vision of developing talent," said James Bergstrom, the firm’s global head of Investment Funds.
Cone joined Ogier in 2014. He advises hedge funds, private equity funds, asset managers, sponsors and family offices on the establishment, regulation, corporate governance and ongoing operation of investment funds, as well as the establishment of venture capital and other funding structures. Cone is also a member of Ogier's Global Latin American practice team with a particular focus on the Brazil market, advising a broad range of clients in relation to both inward and outward investments.
"Tim combines laser sharp legal skills with transaction management prowess and a flair for numbers and entrepreneurship. He has a formidable reputation in the Brazilian market in particular, but also advises many of our key US clients," said Bergstrom. "We are delighted to welcome Emma and Tim to the partnership. Their promotions underline not just their own development and performance, but also Ogier's commitment to attracting, developing and rewarding the very best legal talent."
