Attorney-at-law Michael Alberga first came to the Cayman Islands back in 1977.
“I am originally from Kingston, Jamaica,” explained Mr. Alberga, who is now a senior partner in the law firm of Thorp & Alberga. When he first came to the Cayman Islands, he said, he was a practicing attorney. Since then he has developed a specialist regulatory and litigation practice that includes licensing, regulation and dispute resolution in relation to corporate commercial law, real estate, banking, mutual funds, partnerships, government relations, labour law, and aircraft and shipping. He also advises on the formation of trusts and ongoing duties of trustees. Michael is a former president of the Cayman Islands Law Society and a widely published author of articles on many aspects of Cayman Islands law.
On this auspicious occasion for his homeland, Mr. Alberga, who was admitted in the Cayman Islands and educated in the University of the West Indies, said that he will be celebrating with his compatriots.
“I have very pleasant memories of Jamaica where I had a wonderful childhood,” he said.
“Cayman is now my home. I wish Jamaica all the very best for the occasion.”
