Jul 6 2017 | 7:14pm ET

Global law firm Ogier has promoted two of its senior investment funds specialists on its Cayman team.

Ben Gillooly has been promoted to counsel, while Justin Savage has become a managing associate, the company said in a statement. Ogier introduced the new counsel role at the start of the year, aimed at experienced lawyers with a specialist technical skill in a particular practice area who can play a leading role in developing the firm's client service offering.

Gillooly works with large financial institutions, hedge fund managers and onshore counsel, with a particular focus on Latin American financial markets. A native Caymanian, he has been qualified in the jurisdiction for more than ten years and also has experience in Hong Kong.

Savage practiced in London and Japan before joining Ogier's Cayman investment funds team in 2013. He advises on the full lifecycle of open-ended and close-ended investment funds and private equity funds. He also has extensive experience advising clients on a broad range of corporate matters including mergers and acquisitions, restructurings and joint ventures.

Ogier provides advice on the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Guernsey, Jersey and Luxembourg law through its network of offices that also includes Hong Kong, Shanghai and Tokyo. Headquartered in Jersey and established in 1867, it is the only law firm to advise on these five laws.
