A multi-jurisdictional team of lawyers from the international law firm's Hong Kong and Jersey offices acted as Cayman Islands, BVI and Jersey legal counsel to Rockpool Capital. The team was led by head of the firm's Asia Funds & Investment Management team, Ann Ng, and Jersey Funds & Investment Management Partner, Simon Hopwood, and assisted by Associate, Anna Chen.
