When the opportunity came up to take a secondment in the Withers' BVI office, I jumped at the chance.
As a lawyer in London, I dealt with cases that touched on offshore jurisdictions and I'd always wonder what those places would actually be like in 'real' life. So when the opportunity came up to take a secondment in Withers' BVI office, I jumped at the chance.
I have never looked back: as well as being blown away by the natural unspoilt beauty of the Virgin Islands, I became hooked on the fast-paced and hard-fought nature of BVI work. Since 2014 I have enjoyed stints in BVI and London, working on both English and BVI cases (of course, often with an international element). I am currently based in BVI.
