Caymanian attorney admitted to bar

 Caymanian Jennifer Stein was
admitted as an attorney-at-law by Justice Charles Quin on Friday, 28 May, after
a motion for her admittance was moved by Walkers Partner Ingrid Pierce.

Ms Stein follows in the footsteps
of her father Grant Stein and, as there are several more fathers and sons who
have become attorneys, Justice Quin made light of this, saying one more
daughter and father in the profession was good to see.

Jennifer attended St. Ignatius
Catholic School and Cayman Prep and High School before spending time at the
George Hicks High School. Her secondary schooling was completed at Bishop
Strachan School in Toronto, Canada.

After originally studying Medical
Microbiology at Edinburgh University, where she received an Upper Second
Honours Degree in June, 2001, Jennifer converted to a law degree at BPP Law
School in the United Kingdom. There, she completed the post graduate diploma in
law, achieving a commendation in 2002, before undertaking the legal practice
course at the same institution with distinction.

Ms Stein did her articles at City
of London Law Firm Bristows between September 2003 and September 2005,
qualifying into the firm’s corporate department, where she worked for a period
of three years as a corporate lawyer.

She will be joining Walkers’ Hedge
Funds Group as an associate from 6 July, 2010.

In addition to what Justice Quin
described as a significant academic background, Ms Stein has also logged
extensive work experience at Bristows London as a Training Solicitor in
competition, employment, intellectual property litigation, property and
corporate.

She was also seconded to the legal
department of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe for three months, in addition
to spending three years with Bristows London as a corporate associate, dealing
with corporate matters, advising on unit trusts and investment funds, as well
as financing matters involving bridging loans, security packages and listing
issues.

Ms Stein joined Walkers Corporate
Services Limited in June 2009, where she oversaw the marketing of services to
hedge fund clients of the law firm and managing hedge funds’ quarterly board
meetings, along with serving as a project manager for the firm’s new Client
Portal.

“It is an honour to be admitted to
the Bar of the Cayman Islands, and I look forward to serving with honour and
integrity,” remarked Ms Stein.
