(CNS Business): Janeen Al-Jadir was admitted as an attorney at law earlier this month after completing her articles with an international offshore law firm. Marc Kish, a partner at Harney’s, moved the admission for the third graduate of their professional development programme in Cayman. Al-Jadir joined the programme in October 2014 and has now secured a position as an associate within the transactional team at Harneys.

Al-Jadir was called before Justice Quin, and a packed courtroom of family, friends and colleagues witnessed the event. Andrew Morehouse, investment funds partner and principal to Al-Jadir during her articles said it had been a pleasure to witness her growth during the programme and was excited she had decided to remain with Harneys after qualifying.

Marco Martins, Managing Partner of Harneys’ Cayman office, said the firm was continuing to grow the programme and was delighted to have another graduate reach the important milestone. He said Harneys had funded the scholarship that saw Al-Jadir complete her legal studies in England.

“We also have two new trainees starting in September 2016. We look forward to continuing to work with talented Caymanians for many years to come,” he added.

Continuing its commitment to support the development and hiring of Caymanians, the firm, which was founded in BVI and opened an office here in 2008, has plans to announce more new hires over the coming weeks and months as it grows its presence in Cayman.
