Walkers hires insolvency, dispute veteran Callum McNeil


Callum McNeil has joined Walkers’ Hong Kong office as a partner in the firm’s insolvency, restructuring and dispute resolution group. McNeil’s offshore experience involves major offshore jurisdictions such as the British Virgin Islands (BVI), the Cayman Islands and Guernsey.

He has regularly appeared before the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands and the BVI Commercial Court. He has particular expertise in investment funds disputes, shareholder disputes, cross-border insolvency and trust litigation.

“We continue to see a rise in Asia-related shareholder and investment disputes, and trust litigation, and of course maintain a very strong flow of restructuring and insolvency-related work,” said Fraser Hern, head of the firm’s insolvency, restructuring and dispute resolution group in Asia and Middle East. “Callum’s wide-ranging experience in all of these areas will be highly sought after in this growing market.”
