What the team is known for

Dentons is a high-profile international law firm with an extensive network of offices around the world, including an unrivalled and near-comprehensive coverage of the Caribbean region. The firm's Caribbean practice provides clients with sophisticated legal representation across the myriad legal environments of the region, headquartered from Barbados with an on-the-ground presence in the majority of jurisdictions. In addition to providing guidance to international clients operating in the region, it provides further advice to domestic corporations both within their home jurisdictions and across the Caribbean market. The team's expertise encompasses the full gamut of transactional and corporate structuring issues, as well as financing, labour and employment, tax, disputes and many other legal practices.

Strengths

A source comments: "They are helpful with conveyancing and property transactions. The relationship has gone from strength to strength and they are expanding across the region, so it's good to deal with a company with that presence and level of professionalism."

Another commentator similarly praises the firm's regional model: "They have a regional presence which benefits us and is strategic and efficient for our operations in the region. They reach out to other jurisdictions, get in touch with local people, coordinate and receive that advice and then convey that to us."

Work highlights

A Dentons team led by Dustin Delany advised Saint Lucia National Conservation Fund on the drafting of collaboration agreements between the client and seven sister organisations throughout the Caribbean for the purpose of the creation of a joint non-profit vehicle for the promotion of conservation and restoration efforts.

Notable practitioners

Dustin Delany chairs the firm's Caribbean practice from his base in Barbados, as well as acting as the regional managing partner. He is an experienced manager and private practitioner who has developed a strong reputation for his ability to service his clients across the broad and complex legal systems of the region.

"Dustin is always our top recommendation. He is top choice and he always wins our work. He is a breath of fresh air and someone who can talk to people in a way that is clear, professional and accurate and follows that up with hard work and meeting deadlines."
