Collas Crill has made two new appointments in its growing Cayman office.

Andrew was admitted as a solicitor of the Supreme Court of New South Wales in 2001 and the High Court of Australia in 2003, and more recently in 2017 as an attorney-at-law of the Cayman Islands.

He brings with him a broad range of commercial litigation experience, frequently advising in relation to multi-jurisdictional disputes. He has worked offshore, first in Guernsey and then in the Cayman Islands, since 2010.

Natalie Bell joins the office as a Senior Associate within the Corporate, Finance and Funds team.

Natalie specialises in advising in relation to the structuring, formation and ongoing operation and regulation of investment funds. She will also be advising on all aspects of Cayman corporate and commercial law, including mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures and corporate reorganisation.

Before joining Collas Crill, Natalie worked in the Investment Funds and Regulatory team at Harneys in their Cayman and BVI offices. She previously worked at Travers Smith LLP and Eversheds LLP (now Eversheds Sutherland) in the UK.

Managing Partner in Cayman, Alan de Saram said: "It's fantastic news for the Cayman office, and the wider firm, that we have made these two appointments to the team.

"Between them, Andrew and Natalie bring a wealth of experience that will assist in the firm's ambitious growth strategy in the coming years, ensuring we can continue to deliver exceptional service to our clients."
