Conyers’ Claire McConway moves to Firm’s London office

May 2013

Claire McConway has relocated from Conyers Dill & Pearman’s Moscow office to its London office, where she takes up a new role as Head of the Russia and CIS practice, London office. Claire, who has been with Conyers since 2009, is noted for her strong work on Russia and CIS corporate and finance matters.

London continues to be a hub for legal work for clients in Russia and the CIS, and Claire’s new position will allow her to continue serving Conyers’ clients in that region on matters of Bermuda, British Virgin Islands and Cayman Islands law.

Prior to joining Conyers, Claire spent a number of years in corporate practice with leading US and UK firms in London and Paris. She is admitted to practise in Bermuda and the BVI as well as in England and Wales (although she does not currently practise English law).

Claire has been at the centre of some of the year’s most noteworthy deals in the Russian market, including Baring Vostok Capital Partners’ private equity co-investment in Karo Film (winner of, among others, “M&A Deal of the Year” in its category in the 2013 M&A Advisor International M&A Awards), Alliance Oil Company Ltd.’s US$500 million Eurobond issuance and Sberbank’s US$3.2 billion financing to Altimo Coöperatief U.A. in connection with the conversion of the borrower’s preferred shares in Vimpelcom Ltd.

Conyers is a leading international law firm advising on the laws of Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands and Mauritius.
