Carey Olsen and Michael Hanson launch Bermudian firm


International offshore law firm Carey Olsen and Bermudian attorney Michael Hanson have joined forces to establish Carey Olsen Bermuda, a new law firm for the island’s international finance market.

Hanson, who takes on the role of managing partner, has a well-established practice with experience advising some of Bermuda’s global insurance and reinsurance businesses.

The new managing partner also brings his experience acting on behalf of international businesses with offices in Bermuda.

Keith Robinson, who has over 20 years’ experience in commercial litigation, joins the firm as partner.

Dispute resolution and insolvency practitioner Henry Tucker has been hired as counsel.

Casey Olsen Bermuda aims to bring in more Bermudian lawyers as it continues to grow its full service offering.

Hanson commented: "I'm delighted to be opening Carey Olsen Bermuda and, in doing so, adding a new player in the provision of legal services in Bermuda.”

According to Alex Ohlsson, Carey Olsen group managing partner, the new firm complements the group’s “current of British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Guernsey and Jersey legal advice”.

He added: "Carey Olsen Bermuda also supports our continued expansion into Asia, via our offices in Singapore and Hong Kong and ensures our clients in the region have access to the commercial excellence and outstanding levels of service in Bermuda that they are accustomed to in our other jurisdictions.”
