Harneys congratulates second graduate of articled clerk programme 2021

Harneys is pleased to announce that Moesha Ramsay-Howell has successfully completed her Articles of Clerkship and has been admitted as an attorney of the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands. She is the second to achieve this in 2021, following Natasja Levy’s admission last month. Moesha has joined the firm’s Cayman Litigation & Insolvency practice as an Associate.

Moesha was born and raised in the Cayman Islands and started out her legal career after becoming the recipient of a Cayman Islands Government scholarship. This allowed her to complete her tertiary education, which included her bachelor’s degree and a postgraduate diploma in Legal Professional Practice. Moesha is a member of the International Women’s Insolvency and Restructuring Committee (Cayman) and is a board member of the Cayman Islands Legal Practitioners Association. When she is not working or studying, Moesha volunteers at Legal Befrienders, a family resource centre where she provides free legal advice. She is also heavily involved in the Prison Literacy Programme at Her Majesty’s Prison Service Cayman Islands.  

Moesha commented: “My experience during the Harneys Articled Clerk programme has been outstanding. The exposure and knowledge that I have gained throughout my seat rotations has been invaluable. I am appreciative of the opportunity to have been trained by some of the leading lawyers in the offshore legal industry. I am pleased to be joining the Litigation & Insolvency team and look forward to my continued growth and development within the field and the firm.”

The articled clerk programme allows those training to undertake seats within the Litigation & Insolvency, Banking & Corporate, Investment Funds and Private Wealth practice groups at Harneys. Along with rigorous legal training and support, our articled clerks also receive mentorship and training in soft skills such as networking, and the commercial issues that are relevant to practising in Cayman and in the broader offshore context.

Partner and Director of Harneys’ Articled Clerk Training Programme Katie Pearson commented “We are devoted to our training and development programmes which give Caymanians the opportunity to gain a wide range of skills within our specialist practice areas. We congratulate Moesha on her hard work and dedication, and we look forward to seeing her continued growth throughout her legal career.”
