09 April 2019
Leading offshore law firm, Mourant, is proud to announce that Adam Barrie has completed his Articles of Clerkship and is now an Associate in the Litigation Team at Mourant in the Cayman Islands.
Adam was called to the Cayman Islands Bar on Wednesday 1 May. His application was moved by Mourant partner Simon Dickson, before the Hon. Justice Richards at the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands.
Born and raised in the Cayman Islands, Adam Barrie attended Cayman Prep & High School before moving to Canada to attend Ridley College in St. Catharines, Ontario. He then obtained an Honours Degree from the University of Western Ontario, during which time he took part in two overseas exchange programmes, one in Cuba and one in The Netherlands. He obtained his Master of Arts in Law with Merit from the University of Bristol and completed the Legal Practice Course with Commendation from The University of Law, Moorgate.
Adam first joined Mourant in 2014 as a summer intern and returned each year until joining the firm full-time in September 2017 as an Articled Clerk. During his Articles, he completed a three-month secondment with Serle Court in London.
Adam commented, "I'm thrilled to have had the opportunity to complete my Articles with Mourant and to now qualify as an Attorney-at-Law with the firm. The extensive training and support from everyone has been invaluable and has given me the skills necessary to embark upon my career in law."
Managing Partner Hayden Isbister said, "Adam's admission to the Cayman Islands Bar is a clear demonstration of his commitment to his studies and field of practice, and we're very proud of his achievements."
