Carey Olsen Bermuda Wins Deal Of The Year

October 31, 2019

Carey Olsen Bermuda was among the winning advisers for the Financial Services Deal of the Year at The Deal Awards Europe 2019.

At a ceremony held at the Shard in London earlier today, Carey Olsen was recognised alongside the other advisory teams involved in the US$5.6 billion acquisition of Jardine Lloyd Thompson Group plc [JLT] by Marsh & McLennan Companies, Inc. [MMC].

Working alongside Slaughter and May who were advising MMC as an integrated team with Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz, Carey Olsen advised MMC on the financial regulatory approvals required in connection with the acquisition of JLT in Bermuda, the Cayman Islands, Jersey and Guernsey.

The Carey Olsen team included partner Mary Ward and counsel Adam Bathgate [Bermuda], partner Nick Bullmore and counsel Graham Stoute [Cayman Islands], partner Christopher Anderson and senior associate Arya Hashemi [Guernsey], and partner James Willmott and counsel David Allen [Jersey].

Carey Olsen Bermuda partner Mary Ward said: “To have been involved in such a notable award-winning deal is a significant endorsement of the M&A and transactional expertise that exists at both Carey Olsen Bermuda and across the Carey Olsen group. We are thrilled to have received this broader market recognition so soon after the launch of our corporate offering in Bermuda.”

As a group, Carey Olsen was also among the winning advisers for the Middle Market Deal of the Year [Stride Gaming's £115 million takeover by Rank Group], in which Carey Olsen acted as Jersey, Guernsey and BVI counsel for Stride Gaming.
