Caribbean Civil Court Practice: Blake Morgan Privy Council Team Book Launch

26th April 2024

Three of Blake Morgan’s Privy Council team are expert contributors to the Third Edition of the Caribbean Civil Court Practice.

Joe Cowles, Louise di Mambro and Nicola Diggle, who are all members of Blake Morgan’s Privy Council team, are proud to be among the expert contributors to the Third Edition of the Caribbean Civil Court Practice which is published today (25 April 2024) by LexisNexis.

The third edition celebrates the memory of the pioneering work of Louise’s late husband David di Mambro, its founding Editor-in-Chief.

The Caribbean Civil Court Practice is the essential guide to the various Civil Procedure Rules which apply in the Caribbean. The Third Edition equips practitioners, academics and judges across the region with all the up-to-date Rules and accompanying expert commentary. Comparable English provisions have also been referenced where appropriate.

The new edition for 2024 is an authoritative text on the practice and procedure for civil litigation not only across the Caribbean but also for appeals from the Caribbean to the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council in London, based at the UK Supreme Court.

The Honourable Mr Justice Adrian Saunders, the President of the Caribbean Court of Justice and a former Chief Justice (Ag) of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court, heads the editorial team which comprises many distinguished Judges in the Caribbean. The book includes authoritative and user-friendly commentary from the Blake Morgan team regarding updates to the Privy Council Rules and Practice Directions, case law and practice.

The 2024 edition contains the following:

  • The sweeping new Bahamas Rules, which came into force in March 2023
  • The rules for Barbados, Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court and Trinidad and Tobago
  • Judicial Committee of the Privy Council Rules
  • The Caribbean Court of Justice Rules
  • Forms associated with the Bahamas and Trinidad and Tobago Rules

The new edition makes the most of the past decade of litigation and case law which has deepened the understanding and interpretation of these Caribbean rules.

Blake Morgan has a long and distinguished record of conducting appeals and applications to the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council. With the team including established English litigators and privy council agents Nicola Diggle, Joe Cowles and Louise di Mambro OBE, the former Registrar of the Privy Council, it has unparalleled experience and expertise of the rules and practice directions which now govern the process.

The Blake Morgan Privy Council team is regularly instructed on appeals, regularly acting as agents for attorneys overseas, working with leading offshore law firms and their clients.

In recent years the team has handled high profile appeals from multiple jurisdictions including the British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Turks & Caicos Islands, Bermuda, Anguilla, St Kitts & Nevis, Grenada, Trinidad & Tobago, Jersey, Guernsey and Mauritius.
