Carey Olsen is appointing offshore corporate financing lawyer Emma Russell as the newest partner in its London office with effect from 2 December 2013.

Russell (pictured) is joining the firm from King & Wood Mallesons SJ Berwin where she advised on a range of corporate finance deals including fund and property financing as well as acquisition and leveraged finance. She will be working in London as part of the corporate funds team managed from Guernsey.
 
Russell is a Scottish qualified lawyer and has a wealth of offshore experience having worked in Dubai advising on Islamic finance, general finance and investment funds finance with Cayman and British Virgin Islands law elements.

Carey Olsen’s head of corporate in Guernsey, Graham Hall, says Russell’s appointment strengthens Carey Olsen’s ties further with both clients and referring law firms in the City of London.
 
“Having a touchstone in London with Emma's breadth of experience will be a welcome addition to Carey Olsen and we anticipate a positive response from our London contacts,” says Hall.
 
Russell says: “Carey Olsen's international presence and focus on client service made it the obvious choice and I look forward to being part of the firm's continued growth and helping our clients achieve their goals.”
 
Russell's appointment brings the total of number of Carey Olsen partners based in London to three.
