MJM law firm team get top ranking
The dispute resolution team at Bermuda law firm MJM Limited has been given a Band 1 ranking by Chambers Global 2018.
The global law firm rating agency said the team is known for being a “distinguished, independent Bermudian firm that is widely respected in the jurisdiction”.
It noted that it maintains “a very strong reputation for domestic Bermudian cases and is regularly instructed by the Government of Bermuda on a variety of constitutional and public law matters”.
Chambers said some of MJM’s highlights were acting for Bermuda’s Ministry of Home Affairs in a long-running land compensation claim against the Corporation of Hamilton concerning Hamilton Waterfront, and that it “successfully represented the Electricity Supply Trade Union in a breach of contract dispute against the Bermuda Electric Light Company. This case related to the provision of free healthcare to union retirees and was reported as the first class action to be heard by Bermuda’s Supreme Court”.
Alan Dunch, Andrew Martin and Fozeia Rana-Fahy were mentioned as notable practitioners. Mr Dunch was praised for “superlative litigation skills”, while Mr Martin was described as “gentlemanly, calm and measured advocate” with “a keen understanding of Bermuda’s legislative, regulatory and political environment.”
Sources quoted by Chambers regarded Ms Rana-Fahy as “knowledgeable, responsive and pragmatic”.
