TOP WALKERS PARTNER JOINS TRAVERS THORP ALBERGA
LONDON: December 17, 2012: Anthony Travers has made his first major lateral hire only two weeks after his appointment as Senior Partner of Cayman and Hong Kong based legal practice Travers Thorp Alberga.
Travers has recruited Nicole Pineda, the partner at Walkers responsible for the development and management of its Latin American Finance practice.
In what is seen as a major coup for the rapidly expanding firm, Nicole starts at Travers Thorp Alberga immediately and will be the partner in charge of its newly formed Latin American practice group.
Oxford graduate and fluent English, Spanish and Portuguese speaker Nicole commented, “I am excited to take my practice to Travers Thorp Alberga which has a refreshing and exciting approach and a core philosophy which is much more in keeping with the current global environment.”
Senior Partner Travers said, “Nicole is the very best of the offshore lawyers in the Latin American arena with a terrific and established reputation and this move will give us instant traction in Latin America. There will always be room at this firm for a quality lawyer with a proven track record and the right personality.”
