Appleby has admitted two Caymanian lawyers from its Articled Clerk Programme to the role of Attorneys at Law of the Cayman Islands on applications moved by Appleby (Cayman) litigation partner Peter McMaster QC.
Sophie Benbow and Brigitte Tomascik joined Appleby in September 2012 under the firm’s programme following their legal studies and completed their articles in February 2014; both lawyers were awarded legal scholarships by the firm in 2010.
Benbow graduated from the University of Sheffield, England, with a Bachelor of Laws and Spanish. She has secured a position as an associate with Appleby in the Corporate and Commercial practice group.
Tomascik is a graduate of the University of Liverpool, where she obtained her Bachelor of Laws. She then went on to acquire her Postgraduate Diploma in Legal Practice with commendation, as well as her Masters of Laws Degree, both from the BPP Law School.
“We congratulate Sophie and Brigitte on their admission to the Bar,” said Simon Raftopoulos, Cayman partner in the corporate and commercial practice group and principal to Sophie. “It has been a pleasure to witness their growth as recipients of the Appleby Legal Scholarship Programme and we are proud to have helped them reach this important milestone in their career.”
