Bernadette joins the Litigation and Private Client teams as Counsel. She has extensive expertise as a litigator, appearing regularly before the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands and advising on a number of cross-border insolvency and private client disputes in her previous role at the Firm from 2008-2012.

After returning to Australia and New Zealand in 2012, Bernadette advised clients on a variety of general commercial litigation cases, including contractual disputes, insolvency proceedings and assisted private client and high net worth individuals in relation to a variety of contentious and non-contentious matters including trust disputes.
Kevin Butler, Partner & Head of the Cayman Islands Office added, “We are pleased to have Bernadette re-join our Cayman team. Her range of expertise and international experience will play a key role in growing our Litigation and Private Client practices”.
Over the years, Bernadette has authored numerous published articles on international developments in trusts law and has been recommended as a leading contentious trusts lawyer in previous global editions of The Legal 500. She is also a member of the Society of Trusts and Estates Practitioners (STEP) and an International Fellow of the American College of Trusts and Estates Counsel.
