John McKendrick QC returns to practice in London in July 2018
John McKendrick QC will return to full time practice at Outer Temple Chambers on 14 July 2018, with a wealth of experience after having served as the Attorney General and DPP of the Caribbean island of Anguilla between 2016 and 2018. John was called to the BVI in 2013 and, as a fluent Spanish speaker, he has long-standing connections across the Caribbean and wider Latin America.
John took silk at the age of 39 in early 2016 and has continued to develop his impressive advisory and litigation practice as an AG with considerable heavyweight litigation before the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court in the fields of banking law, financial services and public law. He has also led as DPP on all criminal matters and developed experience of asset tracing and seizure and wider POCA work.
Whilst John will return to London to continue his public, regulatory and commercial litigation and advisory practice, he has accepted a part time Inter-American Development Bank consultancy role to work with the Government of Guyana to reform their legal aid system. He will therefore spend some time in Guyana working on this project until the end of the year.
John will also speak at a number of events including the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court Bar Association Conference in St Kitts, the International Symposium on Economic Crime in Cambridge and then will travel as part of the Bar Council mission to Mexico.
