Grand Cayman, the Cayman Islands – 22 March 2017
Naketa Da Silva was admitted as an Attorney-at-Law in the Cayman Islands on Wednesday 22nd March 2017, following the successful completion of her Articles of Clerkship with Broadhurst LLC. The Grand Court ceremony was presided over by Mr. Justice Williams, who said it was a privilege to be the sitting judge on this occasion. Also in attendance were her proud husband Philip, mother Pansy, friends, family and colleagues.
Peter Broadhurst, managing partner at Broadhurst, moved the application to have Naketa admitted. He commented on Naketa’s dedication, which is reflected in her first class honours degree from Truman Bodden Law School, the myriad awards and honours that she won while there, including the Butterworths Lexis/Nexis Law Prize; University of Liverpool Dean’s Prize; Tim Shea Memorial Prize; and Cayman Islands Chamber of Commerce Prize. Naketa interned with the firm throughout her years in law school, and Mr. Broadhurst is confident that she will be “a valuable and insightful contributor to our profession”.
After accepting her wig and gown, the formal court attire worn by attorneys in the Cayman Islands, Naketa addressed the Court for the first time. She took the opportunity to thank her mother for her “unyielding love and support”, noting that “the hands that held me first are still the ones that hold me when I feel lost”. Thanks too, went to her husband for his support throughout the long path to qualification.
Naketa will remain with Broadhurst LLC, within the litigation department, where she hopes to develop a family law and civil litigation practice.
