Carey Olsen Bermuda hires two Bermudians
Offshore law firm Carey Olsen Bermuda is adding to its employment and dispute resolution practices with the appointments of Bermudians Jay Webster and Keivon Simons.
Mr Webster will join Carey Olsen Bermuda as a senior associate and is returning to Bermuda after practising in London for more than five years in the London office of an international law firm.
He specialises in advising clients on a wide range of contentious and non-contentious employment law matters, including complex and high-value employment tribunal and High Court litigation.
In addition, he has managed and advised clients on global projects involving multiple jurisdictions including Australia, Singapore and the US, and worked with senior executives on high-value individual employment and partnership issues.
Mr Simons, who was admitted as an attorney in Bermuda in 2014, joins Carey Olsen Bermuda as an associate and advises clients on a range of matters involving wills and probate of estates, corporate administration and civil litigation, including a strong background in human rights issues.
Michael Hanson, managing partner of Carey Olsen Bermuda, said: “The appointments of Jay and Keivon are vital to our team in order to service the increasing demand for our services, particularly in relation to employment law and dispute resolution matters.
“It is particularly pleasing to entice a Bermudian lawyer like Jay to come back home and to provide Keivon the platform he needs to grow his practice. We are excited at the prospect.”
Mr Simons joined Carey Olsen Bermuda earlier this week, while Mr Webster will join the firm in January once his notice period with his current firm expires.
