Walkers [Bermuda] Limited has announced that Adam Bathgate has joined the firm as a partner in the Corporate, Finance, Funds & Insurance Group.

A spokesperson said, “Adam started his career with Clifford Chance and was part of its leveraged finance group in London and Munich before spending eight years in the Cayman Islands, where his practice focused principally on debt finance and investment funds work. He joins Walkers from another Bermuda law firm having practised on the island since 2018.

“Adam has market-leading expertise in the areas of fund finance, leveraged and acquisition finance and general lending. He has also worked on asset finance and structured finance transactions. In the funds sphere, Adam’s practice is largely focused on the formation and maintenance of private equity, infrastructure and real estate funds, including related downstream deal work.

“He has been ranked as a rising star in banking and investment funds by IFLR 1000 for 2018 and 2019.”

Mr. Bathgate said, “Walkers is one of the pre-eminent corporate and finance practices in Bermuda. I welcome the opportunity to join a team with such a strong focus on client service and delivery and a stable of notable international and local clients.

“With the strength of the Walkers Global brand, I am very excited by the chance to build on the great work done to date by the lawyers here and I have no doubt that the firm will continue to grow.”

Jonathan Betts, Head of the Group, said, “We are very pleased to bring Adam on board. Our Bermuda Finance & Corporate practice has built an excellent client base of banks and financial institutions, benefiting from Walkers’ global appointments to the panels of 15 of the world’s largest financial institutions as well as established relationships with most international banks.

“We are also now involved in an ever-increasing amount of blue chip corporate, M&A and investment work, flowing from Walkers’ strong global relationships with private equity funds and sponsors, and increasing mandates from significant corporate groups.

“Walkers has also been instructed on big-ticket local infrastructure transactions within the renewable energy industry and the hotel and leisure sector, leveraging the team’s decades of experience in the Bermuda market and familiarity with the local regulatory and governmental branches involved in such projects.

“Adam has an excellent pedigree, both onshore and offshore, particularly in the finance space. We feel that the Walkers platform will be ideal for him to build on that experience and help us continue to grow our business in Bermuda.”
