Me in a minute

Although my family was originally from Greece, I was born and educated in the UK. I argued a lot so I decided to become a lawyer. Also, as my favourite sport was fencing (I represented GB and was Captain of the England team until 2002), I thought I would enjoy the cut and thrust of litigation.

I trained and practised as a lawyer in London for 30 years before moving in 2007 to the BVI, where the law is English based. I represent professionals and individuals with business interests in high value cases before the BVI Commercial Court, and in appeals to the Eastern Caribbean Court of Appeal and the Privy Council (part of the Supreme Court) in London.

When I have some spare time, I enjoy motor-boating and scuba diving in warm climates.
