Partners, Catherine Pham (Cayman Islands), Frances Watson (Guernsey), Helen Wyatt (Guernsey) and Felicia de Laat (Jersey) and Consultant Rachael McDonald (BVI) are all included on the 2021 list of Women Leaders by Jurisdiction.
This year’s Guide is described as: “by far the most comprehensive yet, featuring more than 750 lawyers globally” and promotes the most prominent female lawyers working in the areas of law researched within their jurisdictions.
