Harneys new articled clerk, Trust professional Allison Gonsalves

Harneys has recently taken on Allison Gonsalves to its Articled Clerk Training Programme. Allison is a STEP qualified Trust & Estate Practitioner with more than 20 years of onshore and offshore experience in the international ultra-high net worth and high net worth financial services space. She obtained her Graduate Diploma in Law from BPP Law School in the UK and completed her Professional Practice Course at the Truman Bodden Law School.

Allison explained why she had turned to law: “Throughout my career I have had exposure to an array of different issues affecting my clients which grew my interest in legal problem solving and researching solutions that would meet their needs.” She also added: “I am looking forward to my articles of clerkship with Harneys and thereafter deciding on a specialty.”

The articled clerk programme allows those training to undertake seats within the Litigation & Insolvency, Banking & Corporate, Investment Funds and Private Wealth practice groups at Harneys. Along with rigorous legal training and support, the firm’s articled clerks also receive mentorship and training in soft skills such as networking, and the commercial issues that are relevant to practising in Cayman and in the broader offshore context. Upon successful completion of Articles, the articled clerks are admitted by the court as attorneys.

Harneys is committed to providing opportunities to Caymanians beginning their careers in law; those interested in internship, legal scholarship or articles of clerkship opportunities are asked to visit harneys.com/careers/students-and-graduates/cayman-islands or contact CAYHR@harneys.com
