September 2016 Linda MartinSheba Raza

The Legal 500 United Kingdom 2016 directory has recommended Conyers as Tier 1 in the Offshore Firms in London category.

In addition to the Firm’s strong standing, three of our London-based lawyers were recommended – Linda Martin Director & Head of the London Office, Anne Forbes-Harper, Director and Sheba Raza, Counsel.

“We are delighted to once again be recognised as Tier 1 by The Legal 500 UK”, said Linda Martin. “This recommendation continues to underscore the Firm’s leadership position in the market for offshore legal services”.

Conyers is committed to the London market and continues to strengthen our focus in the region. The addition of Director, Anne Forbes-Harper last year, has added value to the investment funds practice, while our corporate, finance and insurance practices continue to grow.

Highlights from the publication include:

Conyers Dill & Pearman recruited Anne Forbes-Harper as director from Walkers; she specialises in investment fund structures and has extensive experience in asset and structured finance deals, and corporate and capital markets transactions. Highlights included acting for the lead purchasers (represented by Citigroup) on a €250m ten-year bond issuance. ‘Knowledgeable and professional’ London office director Linda Martin is known for structured finance, capital markets, Islamic finance and banking transactions, and advises leading investment banks on their fund-linked products and derivatives and financing businesses. Counsel Sheba Raza (who is ‘always responsive, knowledgeable and very user friendly’) acts for financial institutions and public and private companies across the energy, insurance, real estate and financial services sectors.

The Legal 500 provides comprehensive worldwide coverage on legal service across 100 countries. With a readership that includes commercial and private clients, corporate counsel, C-Suite executives and professional advisors, the series is widely chosen for its definitive judgement of law firm capabilities.
