Law firm Carey Olsen enters Bermuda market

Bermudian attorney and managing partner Michael Hanson in association with offshore firm Carey Olsen has established a new practice in Bermuda.

Hanson's practice is centred on Bermuda human capital and regulatory law, where he advises a number of Bermuda re/insurers. He also acts for international businesses with offices in Bermuda, including banks accountancy firms and hedge funds.

He is joined by partner Keith Robinson, who has over 20 years of experience in commercial litigation, including insolvency and restructuring and general commercial litigation. In addition, he has particular expertise in high-value trust litigation and court approved trust restructurings, often with a multi-jurisdictional element.

Dispute resolution and insolvency practitioner Henry Tucker has also joined Carey Olsen Bermuda as counsel. His practice covers all aspects of offshore commercial litigation with a specific focus on arbitration, enforcement and insolvency issues. He also provides non-contentious advice on unique transaction structures and matters involving cross-border enforcement and regulatory risk.

"Bermuda is known by many as the world's insurance capital, with a world-class insurance and reinsurance market and a robust, resilient and highly regarded regulatory regime," said Hanson. "In addition, however, Bermuda is also recognised as a leading offshore finance centre and is home to a wealth of world-class financial businesses and professionals.  I'm delighted to be opening Carey Olsen Bermuda and, in doing so, adding a new player in the provision of legal services in Bermuda."
