Walkers admits new Caymanian attorney

New attorney Zoë Nolan has completed her legal training with Walkers and was called to the Cayman Islands Bar on 13 Nov. The application was moved by Walkers’ Partner Colette Wilkins before Justice Ian Kawaley at the Grand Court.

Nolan grew up in Cayman and was a recipient of the 2013 Walkers Legal Scholarship. In 2016, she completed her undergraduate degree in Law and Sociology at the University of Cardiff in the U.K. and then completed her LPC LLM in Law and Business at the University of Law (Moorgate) a year later.

During her time as a student, Nolan participated in three legal internships with Walkers, starting in 2014, and was then articled to Rob Jackson, a partner in Walkers’ Finance and Corporate Group, in 2018.

In addition, she received a scholarship from South Square Chambers and the Recovery and Insolvency Specialists Association, which provided her the opportunity to complete the South Square Chambers pupillage in London between May and August 2019.

Nolan will take a place in Walkers’ Insolvency & Dispute Resolution Group as an associate.
