Our law firm regularly represents corporate and individual clients (including high-net-worth individuals), and statutory authorities on a wide range of civil matters including contract, employment, insolvency, construction, insurance, estate and commercial matters, before the Magistrate’s Court, High Court and the Appellate Court.
We also routinely provide guidance and counsel in alternative dispute resolution mechanisms including mediation and arbitration where suitable for expedited and practical settlement of legal disputes.
In conjunction with international law firms, we continue to advise and represent our clients in multi-jurisdictional insolvency proceedings. The Firm also provides legal opinions on unique local law issues related to winding up proceedings in Grenada and a wide variety of insolvency related matters.

In major complex commercial cases, we work in conjunction with our associated network of consulting firms, King’s Counsel and Senior Counsel from the Caribbean, the Commonwealth and the United Kingdom, as well as Privy Council Agents.
