Appointments to the rank of Queen’s Counsel (QC) are made upon the recommendation of the Chief Justice of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court, and this an honour traditionally reserved for senior barristers who have distinguished themselves through exceptional leadership, professional integrity and excellence in advocacy at the Bar.


With Paul’s appointment as one of Her Majesty’s Counsel, O’Neal Webster now boasts the distinction of being the only law firm in the Territory with two QC’s. The firm’s Senior Partner, Paul Webster, was appointed QC in 2003.


Kerry Anderson, Managing Partner commented “We are ecstatic at the elevation of another of our own Litigation Partners to one of Her Majesty’s Counsel. This appointment is a welcome and well-deserved recognition of the stellar work Paul has been doing at the Bar for a number of years. We congratulate Paul on achieving this rare milestone and we know that with this added impetus, Paul will continue to perform at the high level that his clients and the judges of the courts in the Eastern Caribbean and Privy Council have come to expect of him.
