Carey Olsen makes senior hire in London

Carey Olsen has appointed Andrea Steel as counsel in its corporate and investment funds practice.

Andrea is rejoining the firm after spending the past 13 years heading up the in-house legal teams at two of Europe's leading fund administration companies. During her time in-house, Andrea has gained considerable expertise in a wide range of fund structuring, formation, administration and regulatory matters, with particular knowledge of private equity and real estate funds. Practising Jersey law from Carey Olsen's London office, her appointment further strengthens the firm's Jersey funds offering.

Carey Olsen partner Jasmine Amaria said: "Andrea is a fantastic addition to the team here in London. She has a valuable wealth of experience from her time working in-house within the investment funds industry and her expertise and knowledge will be of great value to our clients. Andrea's appointment also reflects the ongoing success of our London office and we are delighted to welcome her back to Carey Olsen."

It was while Andrea was with Carey Olsen between 1996 and 2005 that she qualified as a Jersey advocate. She qualified as a solicitor of England and Wales in 2001.
