10 Sep, 2013
Appleby, the leading offshore law and fiduciary group, has added further strength to its corporate finance practice in Cayman with the appointment of Dylan Wiltermuth. Dylan, who joins the firm as an Associate, specialises in mergers and acquisitions, and capital markets.
This is the fourth senior appointment to the practice in less than two months, demonstrating the Group’s commitment to Cayman and a direct reflection of its growth in market share in the jurisdiction.
Bryan Hunter, Cayman Office Managing Partner, said: “Appleby has been strategically promoting and hiring corporate and corporate finance lawyers over the last six months or so in direct response to client demand and an increase in the number of corporate transactions matters coming into our business.
“Since the appointment of Ian Gobin as a Cayman-based partner and global head of funds, we have brought in to the Group senior associates Jonathan Bernstein and James Kinsley and transferred Andrew Harding here from our Isle of Man team. In addition, we have further bolstered the team with several counsel and senior associate promotions. Dylan’s expertise in corporate finance will stand to further strengthen Appleby’s corporate and commercial offering to our clients. We are delighted to have him on the team.”
Prior to joining Appleby, Dylan was an associate with Kirkland & Ellis International LLP in their London office, where he specifialised in corporate finance. Before joining Kirkland Ellis, Dylan worked with Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP.
Dylan graduated from Bond University with a First Class Bachelor of Laws (Honours) degree and a Postgraduate Diploma in Legal Practice.
