Campbells’ Katherine Powell-Francis Called to the Bar

Katherine Powell-Francis was recently admitted as an Attorney-at-Law in the Cayman Islands, after completing her articles with Campbells. Partner Shaun McCann presented her qualifications to Justice Williams in a Grand Court ceremony, which was attended by a large number of family, friends and colleagues.

Powell-Francis first joined Campbells in 2007 as a legal secretary in the Corporate Department and later that year graduated from the Cayman Islands Law School, receiving her LLB with honours from the University of Liverpool. In 2008, she transitioned to a position in Campbells Corporate Services Ltd and also entered the Professional Practice Course at the Law School.

In 2009, she successfully completed and obtained a Postgraduate Diploma in Legal Practice, with sponsorship support from Campbells and the Cayman Islands Government.

“I am extremely grateful to the partners and staff at Campbells for affording me the opportunity to fulfill my dreams and to pursue new avenues in my career. I believe that the knowledge I have gained from each of my supervisors during my articles is invaluable and thank them for their continued support,” Powell-Francis said.

John Wolf, Head of Campbells’ Corporate Department said, “We are delighted that Katherine has been called to the Cayman Bar and we are fortunate to have her as part of our team here at Campbells. I look forward to seeing her continue to develop her legal skills in the coming years. I am pleased that, as a young Caymanian, she has and continues to demonstrate all the qualities that it takes to be successful. Katherine serves as a great role model for our youth, showing the rewards of hard work and determination.”
