Kalo assistant manager, John Tan, has successfully completed a ‘Masters of Law - Corporate and Insolvency Law’ at Nottingham Trent University. 

John, who joined the Kalo team three years ago, has been working full-time in the Cayman Islands office and studying for the Masters degree part-time. He completed six different modules, with written papers submitted at the end of five modules. For the sixth module he completed a 12,000 word dissertation.

John received the news that he has successfully completed the Masters programme last month and said: “I felt that having an in-depth understanding of the origin and purpose of insolvency and restructuring law in the UK would assist with the application of these principles in the Cayman Islands. It has helped me to have a better appreciation of the law, and I have been able to apply this knowledge to various situations, particularly when facing contentious or complex insolvency and restructuring matters."

Eleanor Fisher, managing director of Kalo’s Cayman Islands office added: “We are all extremely proud of John’s achievements. To complete a Masters in two years, while maintaining a full workload, is no mean feat. John has worked incredibly hard and we couldn’t be more thrilled for him. At Kalo we are committed to helping each and every member of our team grow and develop, both personally and professionally. We place great value on work-life balance and recognise that encouraging people to explore their passions and interests outside of the office is a vital part of maintaining a happy and highly-skilled team.”
