Following the recent appointments to its commercial department in Jersey, Collas Crill has further expanded its practice with the appointment of funds, corporate and regulatory lawyer Dilmun Leach.
Named a 'rising star' by IFLR1000, Dilmun joins the firm as group partner, responsible for leading Collas Crill's investment funds practice in Jersey.
His funds practice includes acting on the launch of investment funds and their satellite vehicles including co-investment and carry vehicles, advising on the Jersey AIFMD regime and the establishment and licensing of Jersey managers.
Dilmun has significant experience of working with fund managers investing in a variety of asset classes including debt/CLOs, private equity, real estate, infrastructure, oil and gas and virtual currency.
Prior to joining Collas Crill in 2017, Dilmun worked for Ogier in Jersey and Herbert Smith in London.
Dilmun's appointment comes shortly after the arrival of senior corporate and banking and finance lawyers Mike Williams and Ian Montgomery who joined Collas Crill in Jersey from Mourant Ozannes earlier this year.
Dilmun said: "I am really excited to join Collas Crill, working with the existing partners to build and strengthen our corporate, investment funds and regulatory practices. This is a great opportunity for me to work in an experienced team with an impressive stable of loyal clients that is known for delivering client focused outcomes."
Mike, who heads up the commercial team in Jersey, said: "We're very pleased to welcome Dilmun into the fold. He has a fantastic reputation and tremendous experience and market knowledge. The addition of Dilmun will compliment and further support our commercial team as it continues to go from strength to strength."
