My areas of practice include: civil and commercial litigation; constitutional law; trusts law; banking and corporate and commercial. I specialize in the resolution of disputes, where my training and years of expertise have allowed me to bring a professional edge to a range of high profile and multi-jurisdictional disputes.
Supporting my clients’ objectives
I utilise risk reduction and risk management techniques in order to achieve the best outcome for my clients. As an advocate, I strive to understand the business model of my clients so to effectively engage in communication with them regarding their aims and objectives.
I am a graduate of the University of the West Indies and completed the Bar Vocational Course at the Inns of Court School of Law in the United Kingdom. I was called to the Bar of England and Wales in 1979 and to the Bar of the Turks and Caicos in 1980.
With over 40 years’ experience, I am one of the most senior advocates within the Turks and Caicos Islands. I have appeared in various appeals before the Privy Council of the United Kingdom and in the courts of the Eastern Caribbean states.
