Alexandra Woodcock


I’m a Partner in our Cayman Islands Corporate and Finance practice and specialise in banking and finance work.

I frequently advise many of the world’s leading finance institutions and private fund sponsors on the structuring and execution of finance transactions and restructurings involving secured lending to Cayman Islands companies, partnerships and unit trusts (including hedge funds and private equity funds). I have extensive experience on fund finance matters and have worked on some of the largest and most high-profile cross-border consensual restructurings.

Before joining Mourant, I was Partner at another offshore law firm in the Cayman Islands for 12 years.

Prior to moving offshore, I worked at Bingham McCutchen LLP in London.
