Walkers adds Group Partner to Jersey funds team

RELATED TOPICS​

Leanne Wallser has joined Walkers’ Jersey office as a Group Partner as part of the firm’s strategic growth in the Island.

Wallser is the fourth new partner in the Jersey team in the last 18 months, following the relocation of Fraser Hern from the firm’s Singapore office, the lateral hire of Nigel Sanders from another offshore firm, and Christopher Reed’s promotion to the partnership.
 
Overall, headcount across the Jersey office has increased by more than a third in the last year.
 
Wallser has worked offshore since 2003 with previous experience in Hong Kong and London as well as in Jersey – she is a specialist in Jersey fund structures, and in particular, in ESG and impact investing.
 
Jonathan Heaney, the managing partner of Walkers’ Jersey office, says: “We are delighted that Leanne has joined us, her arrival means that we now have three specialist investment funds partners in the team, supported by an excellent bench of associates and senior counsel.
 
“The growth we have seen in the last 18 months shows our confidence in the jurisdiction – we’re investing in our growth here and in Guernsey because we see enormous potential in the Islands, and consistent client demand.”
 
Wallser says: “I am delighted to be joining the Walkers’ Jersey team at what is clearly an exciting time, and to be playing a part in developing the investment funds practice.
 
“Walkers has a renowned global investment funds team with an enviable client base and I look forward to building on this further.”
