Kawaley Presents Book To Business Bermuda

March 15, 2013

Chief Justice Ian Kawaley presented Business Bermuda CEO, Cheryl Packwood with his new book, Offshore Commercial Law in Bermuda at Business Bermuda’s office in Windsor Place.

Offshore Commercial Law in Bermuda is the first comprehensive practitioner’s guide to offshore commercial practice in Bermuda. Edited by the Chief Justice of Bermuda Ian Kawaley whose speciality is in commercial law, and written by leading practitioners in the principal commercial law fields, this book provides an insight into the development and current operation of Bermuda’s offshore legal framework.

With contributions from eminent members of the Bermuda Bar, each of the 27 chapters describes the key legal rules and explains how the relevant legal principles are applied in practice. Reference is made to relevant statutory provisions and case law, while contributors also furnish practical observations, which add flesh to the bare bones of the formal legal structures in question.

Chief Justice Mr. Kawaley commented, “It gives me and my consultant editor Karen Skiffington great pleasure to present Ms. Cheryl Packwood as CEO of Business Bermuda with a copy of ‘Offshore Commercial Law in Bermuda’.

“Over the years Ms. Packwood has been a standard bearer for promoting Bermuda as an offshore financial center primarily abroad and at home as well.

“One part of Bermuda’s infrastructure, which she has often highlighted, is our mature legal system and the ability of our courts to efficiently handle commercial disputes. It is hoped that this book may make a small but meaningful contribution to her valuable work.”

“It is a great honor for Chief Justice Mr. Kawaley personally to present me with his new book,” commented Ms. Packwood. “This edition is a wonderful addition to Bermuda’s library of legal resources.

“As a promoter of Bermuda’s financial services sector, I am sure that this book will go a long way in assisting international businesses in their endeavors.”
