Conyers Dill & Pearman has hired Russian lawyer Yuri Kashkin (pictured) in its Moscow office and litigation lawyer Ben Hart in its Cayman Islands office, as the firm continues to grow its global practices.
Kashkin specialises in corporate and commercial work, including banking and finance, and regularly advises banks, public and private companies. Kashkin joins Conyers from the Moscow office of Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, where he was a corporate associate, and has also worked in the corporate team of Baker & McKenzie in Moscow.
Hart specialises in Cayman Islands litigation and restructuring, advising clients on commercial and contractual disputes, asset tracing and debt recovery, contentious and non-contentious insolvency, insurance, property litigation, employment and strata law. Hart brings a wealth of Cayman Islands experience and joins Conyers from Ogier. He has also worked at Campbells in Cayman and commercial law firm Bond Pearce in England.
John Collis, Chairman of Conyers, says: “We are delighted to welcome Yuri and Ben to Conyers. Our Moscow office continues to grow and is perfectly positioned to advise major players in Moscow, who remain keen to raise capital on the world’s markets using offshore structures. Likewise, our Cayman litigation practice continues to grow from strength to strength and we are pleased to service our increasing client base there.”
