Steven Rees Davies to join Carey Olsen Bermuda

Carey Olsen Bermuda Limited is pleased to announce that Steven Rees Davies is to join its corporate practice as partner.

A specialist in fintech and the digital assets sector, Steven will join Carey Olsen after 13 years at another offshore firm where he is currently the joint global head of technology and innovation.

In addition to his fintech and digital assets expertise, Steven's practice covers the areas of corporate finance, capital markets, regulation and intellectual property, having represented clients in a wide variety of cross jurisdictional corporate transactions and restructurings as well as public offerings, private placements and listings on the Bermuda, London and New York stock exchanges. He also frequently advises on multinational joint ventures, M&A (with a focus on infrastructure, telecoms and energy) and private equity projects.

Michael Hanson, managing partner of Carey Olsen Bermuda Limited, said: "Steven enjoys a fantastic reputation both in the jurisdiction and internationally and we are delighted he will be joining us.

"Alongside Mary Ward and Gavin Woods, Steven will lead a corporate team that continues to go from strength to strength, and his fintech and digital assets expertise will unquestionably broaden the range of services and insight we can offer to our existing clients in these fast-moving sectors. Client demand continues to be extraordinary and more announcements are on the way as that growth continues to accelerate."

Recognised by numerous legal publications since 2015, Steven is ranked as a Leading Individual (corporate and commercial) in the 2021 edition of The Legal 500 Caribbean, while he is praised in the latest edition of Chambers Global for always going 'above and beyond to ensure all of our dealings resulted in a high degree of success'.

Steven will begin his new position in August 2021 after fulfilling his contractual obligations at his current firm.
