Claritas welcomed Alexia Adda as counsel in their litigation and insolvency team on 4 September 2023.
Alexia brings a wealth of experience to Claritas, having qualified as a barrister at Law in England & Wales in 2004 and a solicitor of the Supreme Court of England & Wales in 2008 (in both cases, now non-practising).
Alexia previously practised in the Cayman Islands between 2010 and 2013, when she worked at Higgs Johnson and then Harneys. She has also worked in the Singapore office of leading offshore law firm, Walkers, from 2015 to 2019. Alexia has worked on some of the largest litigation and insolvency matters the Cayman Islands has seen, including the Madoff liquidation, Algosaibi Brothers litigation and Axiom Legal Financing Fund receivership.
Alexia: “I have been watching the rise and rise of Claritas since its launch in 2022. To be joining the Firm, especially at this moment in its development, is a particularly exciting chapter in my legal career and I am very much looking forward to working with Katie and the team.”
Katie Pearson, who leads Claritas’ litigation and insolvency practice: “Alexia’s hire represents a significant strengthening of our litigation & insolvency capabilities and is very exciting for me personally. It reflects highly on our first year in practice that we have been able to attract a senior litigator of Alexia’s talent and experience. I am sure she will serve our clients excellently, and I am looking forward to working with her.”
