Business law firm Ogier announced the appointements of David Cooney and Bradley Kruger (pictured) as partners in the Cayman office and Michael Killourhy as a partner in the British Virgin Islands office. In the meantime, Simon Schilder, partner, will be relocating from the British Virgin Islands office to the Jersey office.
David Cooney who worked before for Gorvins in UK moved to Ogier in 2012. He is mainly focusing on private clients, managing also several key funds related clients and transactions.
Bradley Kruger joined Ogier in 2006. Prior to this, he was employed by Fraser Milner Casgrain in Ontario and Shearman & Sterling in California. He advises on corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures and redomiciliations, as well as regulatory matters.
Michael Killourhy has been working for Ogier since 2012. Formerly, he spent ten years at Sidley Austin’s London office. He is specialised in corporate transactional matters, with particular emphasis on public and private mergers and acquisitions and complex corporate restructuring.
Schilder’s move is a response to the increasing client demand for BVI services in the European time zone. His relocation will strengthen the European funds team.
Ogier also promoted five senior associates to managing associates: Robert Christie and Christopher Newton from British Virgin Islands, James Heinicke from Cayman, Sally Peddom from Guernsey and Laurent Thailly from Luxembourg.
