Three Appleby attorneys, Ann-Alecia Moore, Kimberly Wood and Tamanna Keir, were recently admitted to the Cayman Islands Bar in a unique ceremony held via video conferencing platform, Zoom.
Ann-Alecia and Kimberly both completed their Articles of Clerkship with the firm over the past 18 months, and were officially admitted as Cayman Islands attorneys on 29 April 2020.
Ann-Alecia, who graduated from Queen Mary, University of London before joining the firm, said, “Although it was not the admission I envisioned, I am extremely grateful that Justice Williams and his staff were able to accommodate a virtual admission hearing during these strange times and that all my family and friends were able to virtually attend.”
“I am extremely thrilled to be starting this next chapter as an Attorney at Law within the Corporate Practice Group at Appleby,” she added.
Kimberly completed her studies at the University of Liverpool, graduating with Honours, and completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Legal Practice with Distinction at Oxford Brookes University.
“Having my general admission via Zoom was novel, yet wonderful because my family was able to join in from all over the world,” Kimberly said. “I am proud to enter this new chapter in my career as a Corporate Attorney at Appleby, a top offshore law firm that supports my growth and overall wellbeing.”
Appleby lawyer Tamanna Keir was also admitted as a Cayman Islands Attorney after joining the firm in March, transferring from Leeds, England where she was an Associate with listed law firm, Gateley Plc.
“I am delighted to have been admitted as an Attorney in the Cayman Islands and so very grateful to everyone at Appleby for the support and guidance throughout this novel start to my time on the island.”
Norman Klein, Cayman Islands Managing Partner at Appleby, welcomed the new arrivals and transitions.
“Hiring and developing talented individuals like these attorneys is a point of pride for us at Appleby,” Norman said. “On behalf of all the Partners, I congratulate Ann-Alecia and Kimberly on this fantastic accomplishment, and also welcome Tamanna to our team.”
