I have worked with Robert on a number of occasions and found his manner to be extremely pleasant and engaging whilst delivering a high level of expertise. He is always quick to respond and understands the business side of things as well as being an extremely competent lawyer. He is actually one of the best private client lawyers in Cayman, which is a tough crowd to be compared against.

Peer review:

Robert is an incredibly efficient lawyer and one who is not afraid to commit to an opinion. Very easy to deal with and breaks things down in a concise manner. Without doubt one of the best private client lawyers to deal with in the Cayman Islands.

Peer review:

I have worked with Robert on two substantial matters recently, the first a difficult and challenging high profile application to the court seeking orders which would, if successful, remove a question mark over thirty years of trust administration and the second a sensitive matter involving alleged conflicts of interest. In both matters Robert has shown himself to be highly able intellectually as well as practical and commercially aware. I have a very high regard for his abilities which, coupled with his engaging manner, make him one of the best private client lawyers in the Cayman Islands.
