Band 1

第一等

Chambers Commentary (based on the Chambers research)

Keithley Lake & Associates remains one of the largest and most well-known law firms in Anguilla. Sources continue to highlight it as a dominant force in the market. Several members of the team have significant experience practising abroad, lending a considerable international perspective to its advice. Its work covers a wide spectrum of business-related law, including banking and finance, real estate and IP mandates, as well as the full gamut of litigation and ADR. The firm is the Anguilla member of the Globalaw legal network, and also benefits from its close affiliation with the law firm Daniel Brantley in St Kitts & Nevis.

Merline Barrett has particular expertise on real estate financing and development mandates. She maintains an impressive profile within the jurisdiction, with sources viewing her as a "top-notch lawyer" who brings a "very measured approach" to high-stakes transactions. She receives praise for her assured grasp of business strategy. In addition to real estate matters, Barrett advises on financial transactions more broadly, as well as insurance and trusts and estates issues.

Jean Dyer is especially noted for her litigation practice. Sources describe her as "very tenacious with respect to her client's cause," adding that she is "very astute" and possesses good commercial judgement. She is admitted in several other Caribbean jurisdictions, including St Kitts & Nevis and the British Virgin Islands, and in addition to contentious matters also assists clients with real estate transactions.

Band 1

第一等

Chambers Commentary (based on the Chambers research)

WEBSTER is well established in the jurisdiction, with an enviable track record of involvement in some of Anguilla's largest and most significant transactions. The highly experienced team offers core expertise in corporate and finance, real estate, IP and commercial litigation, but is also well placed to advise on a broad range of other specialist areas. The firm is regularly called upon to act as local counsel to a number of well-known international firms, and its impressive list of end-user clients includes several major investment banks. In addition to the firm's work for corporations and financial institutions, another major strand of the practice sees the team provide trust and estate planning guidance to a number of prominent high net worth individuals.

Managing partner Pam Webster is a highly respected figure in Anguilla, with sources acknowledging her "good reputation," and referring to her as a lawyer who "gives good advice." Alongside her legal practice she also maintains a political career, being the current leader of the opposition in Anguilla's House of Assembly.

Head of litigation Gerhard Wallbank commands great respect among interviewees. One commentator observed: "He is simply a class act - he's very, very bright and definitely a go-to guy for heavyweight insolvency litigation." Other sources describe him as "truly a pleasure to work with" and highlight his "deeply impressive judgement."

Harry Wiggin possesses several decades' experience in cross-border tax and estate planning issues. Interviewees note his "clear, frank and direct advice" and describe him as "responsive and efficient." Wiggin has particular expertise relating to private client issues and is currently a consultant within the firm.
