Bermudian Returns Home From Singapore Secondment

March 2010

Conyers is pleased to announce the return of Bermudian lawyer Brian Holdipp following a two year secondment to the firm's Singapore office.

Prior to his secondment Brian practiced corporate law in Conyers' Bermuda office, principally in the areas of private equity real estate funds (exempted limited partnerships), securitization and private and public exempted company equity and debt financing. Brian holds an LLB from the University of Kent and completed the Legal Practice Course at the College of Law in 1997. He was admitted to practise in Bermuda in 1998.

Bermuda continues to grow in popularity as a domicile of choice for Singapore and other countries across the ASEAN (Association of South East Asian Nations) region. The majority of listings on the Singapore stock exchange are Bermuda registered, and Conyers recently acted for the first Bermuda companies to list on the BURSA Malaysia (Malaysia's Stock Exchange). A significant part of Brian's practice in Singapore involved advising Bermuda companies listed, and seeking listing, on those stock exchanges.

John Collis, Chairman of Conyers, commented: "Bermuda has a long relationship with Singapore. Conyers has acted as a conduit for this growth for over a decade. Brian's experience in Singapore will prove invaluable and we are pleased to welcome him back."
Brian stated: "Asia is widely-recognized as a region of tremendous economic growth. Over the past two years, I have been able to not only provide legal advice to our many clients in Singapore in their own business environments, but also to actively promote Bermuda as a first class international financial centre. This stimulating and rewarding experience has diversified my skills as a lawyer and I am pleased to bring this back to benefit Bermuda."

Conyers' secondment policy provides opportunities for lawyers to gain experience in some of the world's major financial centres and leading international companies. Several Bermudian lawyers are currently on secondment from the firm.

Niel Jones is in Conyers' Moscow office, while Chiara Nannini is currently working with one of Conyers' clients. Guy Cooper recently returned from the Middle East having been seconded there to help launch Conyers' Dubai office in 2006, while Angela Atherden and Gemma Carreiro also recently returned to Conyers from secondments to Bermuda clients. Conyers continues to invest in the development of Bermudians, and recently hired Bermudians Victor Richards and Robert Alexander.
