Offshore law firm has appointed Carolynn Vivian as its Cayman Islands’ office managing partner and Richard Reid as chief people officer, based in London.

She has more than 20 years of experience advising clients on all aspects of corporate and regulatory law across numerous jurisdictions, including mergers and acquisitions, finance, restructuring, and licensing.
