Brick Court silk joins Bermuda litigation boutique

Brick Court Chambers silk Mark Cran QC is relocating to Bermuda to join litigation and insurance-focused firm Attride-Stirling & Woloniecki as a senior counsel, focusing on court work in Bermuda and across the Caribbean.

Cran will remain a door tenant at Brick Court. He was called to the bar in 1973 and became a silk in 1988. His practice focuses on commercial law, but he has also argued entertainment and sports cases.

Cran is the third silk to be tempted offshore in the last year. In early 2012 Appleby hired Serle Court’s Peter McMaster QC as a partner in its Cayman litigation team (24 January 2012), while Ogier picked up 3 Stone Buildings’ Richard de Lacy QC as its head of Cayman litigation a year ago (16 March 2012).

Attride-Stirling previously hired Essex Court Chambers silk Victor Lyon, also as senior counsel (8 May 2007).

Jan Woloniecki, litigation head at the Bermudian firm, said Cran’s arrival would enhance Attride-Stirling’s advocacy capabilities.
