Who's Who Legal Asset Recovery: Lawyers

Colette Wilkins has almost 30 years' experience as a commercial litigator, specialising in contentious insolvency, high-value asset recovery, hedge fund disputes, and issues relating to corporate governance and fraud. Colette advises and represents office-holders in complex cross-border liquidations, often representing creditors and liquidators in proceedings to determine and protect interests in insolvent estates. She has appeared in many leading cases in the Cayman Islands Grand Court and Court of Appeal.

Colette's early career was in London at the Chancery Bar, where she appeared regularly in the High Court and the Court of Appeal. She was called to the Bar of the Cayman Islands in 2005 and has been a partner with Walkers in the Cayman Islands since 2009.

Colette is a regular speaker on topics relating to Cayman Islands law at international conferences. Since 2009 she has been commended in all the leading legal directories including WWL (which describes her as “exceptional”), Chambers Global (Band 1) (where she has been commended for her “exceptional knowledge of the Cayman legal system” and “commerciality and pragmatism”) and The Legal 500 (which describes her as a “commercially astute, extremely capable litigator who is an asset to any team”). She has been named Lawyer of the Year by the Restructuring and Insolvency Specialists Association in the Cayman Islands.

Colette is the Cayman Islands' representative for International Chamber of Commerce FraudNet, the world's leading asset recovery legal network.

Walkers is a leading international law firm experienced in international litigation and transactions practising the laws of Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Guernsey, Ireland and Jersey.

At the 2017 and 2018 WWL Awards, Walkers was named Asset Recovery Firm of the Year.
