Naketa Da Silva

(CNS Local Life): Naketa Da Silva was admitted as an attorney-at-law in the Cayman Islands on Wednesday 22 March, following the successful completion of her articles of clerkship with Broadhurst LLC. The Grand Court ceremony was presided over by Justice Williams, who said it was a privilege to be the sitting judge on this occasion. Also in attendance were her proud husband Philip, mother Pansy, friends, family and colleagues.

Peter Broadhurst, managing partner at Broadhurst, moved the application to have Da Silva admitted. He commented on her dedication, which is reflected in her first class honours degree from Truman Bodden Law School, the myriad awards and honours that she won while there, including the Butterworths Lexis/Nexis Law Prize; University of Liverpool Dean’s Prize; Tim Shea Memorial Prize; and Cayman Islands Chamber of Commerce Prize.

Da Silva interned with the firm throughout her years in law school, and Broadhurst is confident that she will be “a valuable and insightful contributor to our profession”.

Naketa will remain with Broadhurst LLC, within the litigation department, where she hopes to develop a family law and civil litigation practice.
