After thirteen years in Europe, I had taken a year and a half from being in Europe because I wanted to achieve two things. The first was to find the man of my dreams, in the Caribbean, who would wish to set up life with me in Europe, and to whom I would get get married. The second, was to do the relevant attorney training in the Caribbean which would serve two purposes. Firstly, that I would familiarise with my roots in the Caribbean and secondly, that I get sworn in as an Attorney in one or two of the English-speaking Caribbean islands.
I am delighted to announce that I have successfully accomplished both of my dreams! Indeed, I met Andy my husband, a Barbadian Civil & Structural Engineer on the island of Dominica (where I was born), who, incidentally, did all of his tertiary studies in Britain. And, I have successfully completed the foreign Attorneys training course with the Hugh Wooding Law School in Trinidad, which leads to the Legal Education Certificate, (LEC), the quintessential document to be recognised as an Attorney in the Courts of the English-speaking Caribbean, and thus by my peers in those islands.
Andy and I both want to achieve similar goals and therefore tied the knot in his homeland of Barbados in early June 2011, and after our honeymoon, I was sworn in as an Attorney at Law in both Barbados and Dominica.
Although we have returned to France, I have retained my virtual law office in New York and commute to New York and the relevant Caribbean islands for the purpose of litigation.
As well as having a diverse practice with focus on Intellectual Property, Commerce and Business, I am a member of various sections of the American Bar Association to include the sections in International Law, Business Law, Antitrust, Intellectual Property and Franchise and Distribution. I am also a member of the International Division of the Law Society of England and Wales.
