Pemberton appoints Bethany Walker as Head Counsel


Pemberton, the diversified asset manager backed by one of Europe’s largest insurers, Legal & General Group PLC, today announces it has expanded its London-based team with the appointment of Bethany Walker as Head Counsel – Execution.

Bethany is a qualified solicitor with a decade of experience in banking and capital markets, both in-house and private practice. For the past four years, Bethany was Legal Counsel for Execution and Workouts at Hayfin Capital Management. In her previous roles, Bethany worked as a solicitor in the finance teams at Macfarlanes and DLA Piper UK.

As head counsel for execution at Pemberton, Walker will be providing transaction execution and legal support to the origination teams. Having gained extensive cross-border experience in her previous roles, she will be able to support Pemberton’s teams throughout Europe.

Bethany joins Pemberton with extensive, highly relevant legal expertise from her time at one of our private debt peers and in private practice. As we continue to expand our platform and originate more transactions right across Europe, Bethany’s support will be invaluable.

– Symon Drake-Brockman, Managing Partner at Pemberton

I am excited to be joining Pemberton as it solidifies its position as one of the leading private debt funds in Europe. The opportunity to join a truly pan-European firm with significant growth upside, where I can apply my cross-border legal experience, was highly attractive.

– Bethany Walker, Head Counsel at Pemberton
