Philipp Neumann and Elizabeth Killeen have joined as senior associates, while Sharon Mungall has been appointed as a legal associate.

"These recent appointments represent a doubling in size of the BVI office and are evidence of increasing client demand for BVI advice in corporate, finance and investment funds matters," said Clinton Hempel, managing partner of Carey Olsen BVI.

"This expansion means that we can continue to offer the breadth of experience and service Carey Olsen is renowned for. The appointment of Phillip, Elizabeth and Sharon demonstrates Carey Olsen’s commitment to developing its BVI service offering," he added.
