A partner since 2002, Gillian heads our corporate department and brings more than 30 years of experience in corporate and commercial work to the role.

She works closely with many international law firms and accounting firms and advises both domestic and international corporate and private clients on business entity formation, corporate structuring and tax planning, mergers & acquisitions, and varied and complex international financial transactions.

Following on the heels of a B.Sc. (Hons.) in management studies, Gillian earned her LL.B degree from the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill in 1986. She then received her Legal Education Certificate from the Norman Manley Law School in Jamaica in 1988. She joined the legacy firm of Clarke & Co. as an associate that same year, having been admitted to the Bar in Barbados.

Gillian is an accredited mediator with the Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution (CEDR). She is also a member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP).
