Karis Bynoe is an attorney-at-law with over nine years of practice at the Barbados Bar. After venturing into the field of Aeronautical Engineering, she has decided to focus her energy and natural drive on the law and her legal career.
She believes the ultimate goal of practicing law is to be able to solve whatever legal problem her clients may throw at her. For the last six years, she has been privileged to work in law firms whose main purview has been Debt Collection – she certainly knows her way around originating processes and court procedure. However, she is well rounded in a wide range of civil legal practice including Appeal Advocacy, Employment and Succession matters.
December 2015 brought in an exciting new phase of her career. She joined Belgrave Eastmond Associates, a chambers based on cooperative effort as we all strive towards excellence in the practice of law and service to our clients.
