Appleby, the specialist global law firm and fiduciary services provider, has announced the hiring of Cathryn Minors, a lawyer with experience across insurance-linked securities (ILS), insurance and reinsurance in offshore domiciles, as a new Counsel in its Bermuda office.

Cathryn Minors was most recently working at offshore law firm Walkers in Bermuda, where as a Senior Associate she worked across a range of offshore reinsurance and ILS matters.

Minors has joined Appleby as a Counsel in its Corporate department in Bermuda, but is best known for her work as a legal specialist in the ILS and re/insurance space.

During her time working in the Bermuda market, Minors has worked on insurance and reinsurance matters involving life insurance securitizations, catastrophe bonds, special purpose insurers (SPI), and long-term and general business commercial re/insurers.

She also has experience in other areas of finance, having worked on other securitizations and general banking matters.

Minors commented on her new role, “I am thrilled to be joining Appleby’s corporate department where I can contribute my skills and work alongside such a reputable team. The firm’s training and development of Bermudians, commitment to excellence and client satisfaction aligns seamlessly with my work ethic and personal ethos. I look forward to embarking on this next chapter of my career with Appleby!”

Minors worked at Walkers in Bermuda for more than two years, prior to which she worked as a legal counsel at life, annuity and pensions re/insurance group Athora on the island.

Before that, Minors spent over six years at another offshore specialist law firm, Conyers, and has also spent some time working in law in Hong Kong during her career.

Brad Adderley, Bermuda Managing Partner at Appleby, said, “We are excited to welcome Cathryn to Appleby and to our market-leading insurance team.

“Cathryn’s diverse and extensive insurance and reinsurance experience will be invaluable in supporting our dynamic practice and expanding portfolio of clients. Cathryn’s addition not only bolsters our insurance team but also supports our wider corporate practice which continues to grow.”
