Ogier Cayman has announced that Jacqueline Haynes, an articled clerk in the banking and trust section of the firm’s litigation practice, has been admitted to the Cayman Islands Bar.
Ms Haynes’ application was moved by William Jones, Associate, on 18 March before Justice Charles Quin.
“Ms Haynes is a very remarkable young Caymanian woman, with a wealth of experience and we at Ogier feel privileged to have her among us,” said Mr. Jones in his remarks in support of Ms Haynes’ application.
Ms Haynes joined Ogier as a legal trainee in 2008 following her tenure with the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority as an analyst in the Investment and Securities Division. Her previous work experience included 10 years as an intelligence analyst and subsequently a senior customs officer with HM Customs of the Cayman Islands Government.
Ms Haynes obtained her Bachelor of Laws from the University of Liverpool in 2008 and her Postgraduate Professional Practice Certificate from the Cayman Islands Law School in 2009. In addition to her formal education, Ms Haynes has completed a wide range of professional development programmes from such organisations as the Caribbean Regional Drug Law Enforcement Training Centre, the Customs and Revenue Agency of Canada and the Overseas Territories Regional Criminal Intelligence Office.
A graduate of Cayman Islands High School and the Cayman Islands Community College, Ms Haynes also has been recognised as a poet, having received an Outstanding Achievement in Poetry award from the International Society of Poets.
During her training with Ogier, Ms Haynes has had the opportunity to gain experience in its Litigation, Investment Funds, Banking & Finance and Business and Trust Laws teams. Upon admission, Ms Haynes will remain with the Business and Trust Law team as an associate attorney.
