Grenada has announced the country’s first female attorney general.
Just months after being appointed solicitor general, Dia C Forrester-Gellineau was given the promotion, replacing Darshan Ramdhani who served as attorney general from Jan. 2019 to last Thursday.
Ramdhani stepped down to serve as a judge in the British Virgin Islands, following which he will be returning to private practice.
Forrester-Gellineau is the first woman to be appointed attorney general since the first AG was appointed in 1763 when Grenada became a British colony. Since passing the bar in 2008 as well as Grenada she has also worked in St Kitts/Nevis and Anguilla.
Her areas of practice include Banking and Finance Law, Commercial and Civil Litigation, Taxation, Insolvency, and Intellectual Property law.
As Solicitor General over the past 21 months, Forrester-Gellineau played an instrumental role in most government matters before the court and other negotiations.
