  • I disagree with this article.

    No legal system is perfect, but Bermuda, Cayman, and the BVI each have designated commercial courts, and a number of well-qualified and experienced commercial litigators, advocates, and judges.

    In appropriate cases requiring specialist expertise, these jurisdictions also allow the parties to make use of English QCs and junior barristers for advocacy, advisory, and drafting services, both in litigation and arbitration, although it is inevitably the case that local expertise is also required, given the differences between English law and the laws of those particular jurisdictions.

    Does Mr. Mugerwa also suggest, in the interests of avoiding parochialism, monopolistic behaviour, and substandard service, that foreign lawyers should also be allowed to conduct litigation and appear as advocates in the English courts?
