Brimmer-Landy is Called to the Bar
Bermudian lawyer Jacari Brimmer-Landy has been Called to the Bar.
He was called at the Commercial Court on Friday before Chief Justice Narinder Hargun.
Mr Brimmer-Landy is an associate in the corporate practice of international law firm Conyers. He started his one-year pupillage with Conyers in September 2018, having worked at the firm as a summer law student in both 2015 and 2016.
Addressing the court, Conyers director Sophia Greaves described Mr Brimmer-Landy as “highly intelligent, intellectually curious, hardworking and driven, but also extremely courteous and compassionate”.
She added that Mr Brimmer-Landy is a person of “exceptional tenacity” and a true “standout individual”.
The firm said that Mr Brimmer-Landy’s ambition to become an effective corporate lawyer is apparent throughout his education and work experience, as he secured internships at a number of firms in Bermuda.
He has a keen interest in business and economics, having studied economics and finance at the University of Toronto.
Mr Brimmer-Landy, a 2017 LLB graduate of City, University of London, attended Gilbert Institute and Saltus Grammar School, where he was head boy.
He was Premier of Bermuda’s Youth Parliament from 2008 to 2010, was named Bermuda’s Outstanding Teen in 2010, and is a skilled debater, Conyers said, adding that his achievements have been recognised with numerous educational scholarships.
Marcello Ausenda, a director at Conyers, said: “We are delighted that Jacari has chosen to launch his legal career with us. Jacari is bright, ambitious, hardworking and extremely personable. He has quickly asserted himself as a talented member of our corporate team.”
He added: “Having had the benefit of working closely with him during his internships and pupillage with us, I know that Jacari is a person of high character who is about to embark on what I expect will be a long and successful career as a corporate lawyer.”
Mr Brimmer-Landy said: “It is an honour to have been Called to the Bar of Bermuda. The mentorship I received during my pupillage has helped me to succeed and I look forward to developing my career further.”
In his address to the Court, Mr Brimmer-Landy thanked everyone who supported him on his journey, including his teachers, mentors, colleagues and family, especially his mother Chamaigne.
