Conyers boosts London and Asian capabilities with new hires

Conyers Dill & Pearman has hired attorneys in London and Hong Kong and has strengthened its Cayman Islands and Bermuda practices.

Veronica Strande joins Conyers’ London office where she specialises in capital markets, Islamic finance, restructuring and corporate matters.

In Hong Kong, Conyers has appointed Japanese-speaking investment funds and corporate associate Junko Shiokawa (pictured). Conyers celebrates its 25th anniversary in Hong Kong this year and continues to act on the vast majority of offshore listings on Asian stock exchanges.

Gene DaCosta has relocated back to the firm’s Cayman office from Hong Kong, where he was seconded to provide Cayman Islands legal advice on asset financing and funds transactions. DaCosta’s practice includes all aspects of corporate and commercial law, with a focus on mutual funds, shipping and aircraft registration.

Conyers has also hired Sophia Greaves in its Bermuda office where she will practise corporate law. Greaves was formerly a commercial risk and reinsurance associate at Barlow Lyde & Gilbert in London.

John Collis, chairman of Conyers, says: “These lawyers’ expertise and experience will be of great benefit to our clients’ growing domestic and international needs as they grapple with the unprecedented changes and challenges they face in a post recessionary world. We are conscious that as a firm we must be adaptable to the demands of our clients and are thrilled to have these lawyers join us.”
