Announcing: 2016 STEP Caribbean Conference in St. Lucia


Thought-provoking, engaging, and always leading edge, STEP CC16 —the Society of Trust and Estates Practitioners Caribbean Conference 2016— will showcase the best of the region along with some of the most interesting speakers in the global trust and wealth structuring community. O’Neal Webster is pleased to announce that partners Chris McKenzie and Vanessa King and associate Dr. Alecia Johns join the STEP CC16 educational faculty.

The conference, to be held April 25-27, 2016 at Gros Inlet, St. Lucia, will feature opening remarks by The Honourable Dr. Kenny Anthony, Prime Minister of Saint Lucia, among others. Over 225 attendees are registered.

Mr. McKenzie, a highly regarded trust & estates attorney, who is also a world renown speaker at global conferences, will join a panel of experts on Wednesday, as they consider a range of issues which commonly arise when drafting trust instruments. The interactive session will look at various drafting techniques and discuss some of the traps for the unwary that the draftsperson would be very wise to steer clear of.

Ms. King will moderate a panel on Tuesday morning, “Thinking Outside the Box,” a case study of a large family with international interests. The panel will discuss various structures to satisfy the client’s needs, including products, services, and legislation from the Caribbean.

Dr. Johns brings her experience as a human rights lawyer to a dynamic panel to commence on Tuesday afternoon, answering the question: “Is There Really a Right to Privacy?” The highly anticipated session will shed light on confidentiality, digital security, guarantees, and human rights in an increasingly complex business and personal environment. The distinguished panel also includes an intelligence guru and a senior practitioner in a well-known IFC.

We hope you can join us for this educational program. Please take time to introduce yourself to our attorneys during the event. We look forward to meeting you.
