The Cayman Islands will shortly welcome three leading judges to
the Cayman Islands Court of Appeal. Sir Bernard Rix, Sir George
Newman and John Martin, QC have been appointed by the Governor of
the Cayman Islands to the appeal bench, following a recruitment
process conducted by the Judicial and Legal Services
Commission. All three are well respected and distinguished
experts of the highest calibre.
Sir Bernard Rix recently retired from his position as Lord
Justice of Appeal of England and Wales. He has decades of
experience on the bench and is a professor of international
commercial law at Queen Mary University in London. Sir George
Newman was formerly a High Court judge in London, where he
continues to sit in the Queen's Bench Division as a deputy
judge, and has served as a justice of the Court of Appeal in the
Bahamas. John Martin, QC sits as a judge of the Courts of Appeal of
Jersey and Guernsey, and has acted as a deputy High Court judge in
the Chancery Division since 1993.
The Cayman Islands Court of Appeal now consists of:
The Right Honourable Sir John Chadwick (President)
Justice E Mottley, JA
Justice Dr. A. Conteh, JA
The Right Honourable Sir Anthony Campbell, JA
Sir Richard Ground, JA
The Right Honourable Sir Bernard Rix, JA
The Honourable Sir George Newman
John Martin, QC, JA
With these appointments, the Cayman Islands unarguably boasts
the strongest and deepest appeal bench of any offshore
jurisdiction, which will reinforce its leading position as a
jurisdiction of choice for the resolution of financial services
