Carey Olsen's Mahogany Bean seconded to Hong Kong dispute resolution team

Carey Olsen Bermuda associate Mahogany Bean will be seconded to the firm's Hong Kong office later this month to work alongside Hong Kong partner Matthew Watson.

Mahogany, a Bermudian, successfully completed her pupillage with Carey Olsen and was called to the Bermuda Bar in April 2022. She has developed a broad practice within the firm's dispute resolution department, taking a keen interest in government and public law work, regulatory and general civil and commercial matters.

Mahogany said: "I have really enjoyed developing my skills in the busy Bermuda office, but I always saw myself developing the international side of my practice in Asia, so I am grateful for the opportunity to do so. Although I will miss my Bermuda colleagues and clients I am very excited to work with Matt and the great team we have in Hong Kong."

Bermuda Partner Kyle Masters commented: "Mahogany has been an integral part of the dispute resolution team here in Bermuda, and she will be missed. However, having also taken this opportunity myself in 2019, I know how beneficial it will be to her career development as well as the firm's continued growth within the Asia market. We wish her every success."

Bermuda managing partner Michael Hanson JP added: "Mahogany is the fifth attorney to be seconded overseas since our inception in 2017. Obviously, as a global business which thrives on effective talent management it is critical to show a clear and considered path for talented lawyers both within and outside Bermuda. We look forward to welcoming Mahogany back after the successful completion of her secondment in Hong Kong."

Carey Olsen secondments provide lawyers with the opportunity to build relationships with clients in different jurisdictions and with lawyers from across the firm whilst gaining a breadth of experience and skills to enhance career development.
