The Cayman Islands Law Society held its officer elections at an EGM on 2 October 2012 to vote in the newest board members.
Maples and Calder partner, Alasdair Robertson, was elected President. He succeeds Charles Jennings, who has served in the post for a total of 10 years, from 2001-2006 and again from 2008-2012. A new slate of officials was installed, including Vice Presidents, Antonia Hardy, Kevin Butler and James Bagnall, who retains his previous role. Huw Moses OBE will take up the position of Secretary and Treasurer.
"I am honoured to accept the role of President of the Law Society and I look forward to working closely with my fellow officials and indeed the membership as a whole to represent the legal profession to the best of my abilities," said Alasdair Robertson. "We are very focused on the core mission of the Society which is to make representations on matters of concern to the profession as well as contribute our legal expertise in matters which benefit the Cayman Islands and its community. We aim to constructively engage with all stakeholders to achieve this mission. The Cayman Islands legal profession boasts a talented pool of individuals and it is important that we continue to utilise our people to the betterment of the Islands."
Alasdair has been actively involved with the Law Society for six years, serving as Secretary and Treasurer under the presidency of both Charles Jennings and Charles Quin QC (now Justice Quin QC).
