Who's Who Legal Private Funds: Formation

Ingrid Pierce is Walkers' global managing partner and also heads the Cayman Investment Funds Group. She was elected global managing partner in October 2012 and sits on the firm's management committee.

Recognised as one of the world's leading investment funds lawyers, Ingrid has been described by Chambers and Partners as a "phenomenal lawyer", as someone "on my speed dial for the toughest Cayman Islands legal matters" and as someone who "impresses clients and peers alike". She receives "glowing references from clients, who say she is exceptional in her knowledge" and has been named in the 50 Leading Women in Hedge Funds, the IFC PowerWomen 100 and in every leading legal directory.

Ingrid specialises in all aspects of formation and ongoing operation of open and closed-ended investment vehicles, focusing principally on hedge funds. Ingrid services a large client base comprising major institutions, asset managers, insurers, reinsurers and other fiduciaries. Her book of clients includes many of the who's who of asset managers.

Given her litigation background and having advised multiple clients through the credit crisis and beyond, she has considerable experience with contentious matters including advising funds on managing distress in volatile markets. She has acted as counsel to investors and managers in connection with the acquisition, restructuring and winding down of various high profile funds.

Ingrid is a frequent speaker at industry events and a guest commentator on various media platforms including Bloomberg, CNBC and Fox Business.

WWL says: Ingrid Pierce receives plaudits as “a very well-known name” who understands the Cayman market and can look at matters from a global perspective.
