London QC Lynch considered for Solicitor General post

London QC Jerome Lynch has been considered as a possible Solicitor General for the Island — but “at the moment it is just a remote idea, no more”, Mr Lynch said.

A defence lawyer at the UK office Charter Chambers, Mr Lynch has acted in several high-profile trials in Bermuda during recent years.

Attorney General Mark Pettingill, who is also a founding member of the firm, declined to comment.

Mr Lynch defended one of the accused in the Kellon Hill murder trial. Other prominent cases include the trial of Antonio Myers for the gun murder of Kumi Harford.

Currently Melvin Douglas is serving as Bermuda’s acting Solicitor General.
