The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions this month appointed Patrick Michael Moran as its new deputy director.
Mr. Moran, a specialist in white collar crime, money laundering and asset forfeiture, replaces Trevor Ward, who left the role in December.
A statement on Thursday issued by the Director of Public Prosecutions office said Mr. Moran had prosecuted for several agencies in the United Kingdom, including the Crown Prosecution Service and the Revenue and Customs Prosecutions Office.
He has, the DPP writes, “appeared at courts of all levels, up to and including the House of Lords.”
Mr. Moran was called to the Bar of England and Wales in 1997.
Before coming to Cayman this year, he practiced from Chambers in London, which included prosecuting serious criminal offenses.
He joined the Director of Public Prosecutions in the Cayman Islands on March 2.
The new deputy director is also a qualified advocacy trainer. He has been a qualified trainer for 10 years by one of the Inns of Court, a professional association for lawyers, and spent several years as the head of education in his chambers.
