Mr. Rolf Lindsay was recently admitted as an attorney-at-law by Mr. Justice Alexander Henderson in the Grand Court. The application for admission was made by Mr. Angus Foster, senior litigation partner at Walkers.
Mr. Foster informed the court that Mr. Lindsay was educated in South Africa and attended the University of Natal where he obtained two degrees, a BA degree with commendation and then an LLB degree with commendation.
Mr. Foster mentioned that of particular interest was the fact that Mr. Lindsay has worked as legal adviser and monitoring coordinator for the Independent Electoral Commission in South Africa during the first democratic elections in that country.
Mr. Lindsay was trained with a boutique corporate firm, focusing in particular on banking clients. He was admitted as an attorney in South Africa in 1997. He then moved to London where he worked initially with a JP Morgan specializing in derivates and swap transactions. Mr. Lindsay subsequently moved to the well know firm of Slaughter and May in London where he has worked for the past five years as senior associate in their corporate team.
Mr. Foster explained that Mr. Lindsay has experience in a wide range of corporate and commercial matters including international financial arrangements of all types, private equity, share disposals and acquisitions, derivates and general corporate work. In addition he has been involved in training junior lawyers and in arranging and presenting seminars for the firm.
Mr. Lindsay joins the firm’s Corporate and International Finance Department. Mr. Foster said he and his partners were very pleased to have someone of Mr. Lindsay’s qualifications and experience join Walkers.
