Our team comprises dual qualified Turks and Caicos Attorneys and members of the English Bar. Our expertise spans a broad range of areas of corporate, commercial and property disputes. Drawing on a wide range of skills, we are able to make available the appropriate level of seniority and expertise to meet our clients’ needs. We provide advice as well as representation in courts and arbitrations, and other private proceedings. We act as advocates and we also offer services as mediators and arbitrators. We attach the highest importance to building good relationships with our clients. The commercial imperatives which drive our clients and influence their approach to disputes are understood by us. In particular, when giving advice we adopt a pragmatic approach that takes proper account of wider commercial considerations. If the dispute cannot be resolved without the issue of proceedings, we advise on the tactics to be pursued and provide the individual or team to prepare and fight the case.
