We are pleased to announce that Nick Hoffman has been appointed managing partner of our Cayman Islands office*, effective 1 July 2020. Marco Martins is stepping down on the same date after eight successful years as managing partner.

Nick joined Harneys in 2017 and heads our Litigation, Insolvency and Restructuring practice in the Cayman Islands. He specialises in insolvency and restructuring, financial services litigation, company disputes and fraud. Nick has been practising in the Cayman Islands for almost 10 years and is widely regarded as a highly skilled and leading litigator, praised by clients as a smart and energetic lawyer who gives clear and decisive advice.

Chairman Peter Tarn commented: “Nick is well positioned to deliver our Cayman Islands strategy and we are delighted that he has agreed to take on the position of office managing partner. He is recognised by clients as an excellent strategist who is able to handle challenging, fast-moving situations with real skill. We are confident that these attributes will enable him to transition successfully to his new leadership role.

I would like to thank Marco for his tremendous contribution to the firm over the past 13 years.
