Our congratulations to Managing Director Jacqueline Walsh who has been awarded the IWIRC Woman of the Year in Restructuring Award (Asia) 2019. Jacqueline was presented with the award at the INSOL International One Day seminar in Hong Kong on 18 October 2019.
Jacqueline is Borrelli Walsh’s co-founder, and under her leadership, the firm has rapidly grown into an international organisation with 10 offices across Asia, the Caribbean, US and the UK. She also led and advised on some of Hong Kong’s largest and most complex corporate collapses, including Akai Holdings Limited, China Forestry, and China Medical, bringing successful professional negligence claims and other legal claims against advisors, lenders and directors.
Jacqueline also played an instrumental role in raising the profile and welfare of women insolvency practitioners in the region. Together with Aruni Weerasekera, she founded the Hong Kong Network of the International Women’s Insolvency & Restructuring Confederation (“IWIRC”) in 2005. Under their initial guidance and drive, IWIRC developed into the top and one of the most active network for restructuring and insolvency professionals in Asia.
The Woman of the Year Restructuring Award in Asia recognises women in the restructuring and insolvency industry who have inspired and skillfully led a restructuring team, showed exceptional leadership, and have made extraordinary contributions to the profession.
