WEBSTER - General Business Law

Band 1

第一等

Commentary from the Chambers Global guide

WEBSTER earns consistently high praise from its client base, who state that it is "at the top of the chart" when it comes to high-value commercial matters. The firm represents several overseas contractors in major infrastructure mandates, and also offers expertise in transactional real estate, banking and finance and IP matters. In contentious work, it plays a key role in a number of ongoing, multi-jurisdictional asset tracing proceedings. Another significant strand of the firm's practice sees it acting for high net worth individuals on major trusts and estate planning matters. Several of the firm's lawyers are also admitted in St Kitts & Nevis and regularly oversee matters in that jurisdiction.

Managing partner Pam Webster is held in high esteem by market sources. Her work of late includes advising numerous international brands in connection with trade mark and patent registration issues in Anguilla and several other Caribbean jurisdictions, including St Kitts & Nevis. She combines her legal practice with her responsibilities as Leader of the Opposition in Anguilla's House of Assembly.

Gerhard Wallbank is the firm's head of litigation, and is described as "very user-friendly and practical" by sources. Interviewees praise his assured grasp of sophisticated international business structures and ability to explain complex legal issues in simple terms.

Consultant Harry Wiggin has extensive experience in private client matters, with a particular specialism in trusts and estate planning. Clients highlight his "full and thorough understanding of Anguilla's legal system," and note that he is "easy to work with and very forthcoming." He is also admitted to practice in St Kitts & Nevis.
