Louise-Anne (or Louise as her friends and family refer to her), is a fully qualified barrister and member of the Inner Temple.

Since her call to the Bar in Gibraltar, she has worked as part of a legal team in one of the ‘big four’ accountancy and financial service providers where she gained experience in company, trusts, commercial and tax matters.

She was also seconded to the firms’ partner offices in London to develop her legal training.
Louise further enhanced both her legal and managerial skills since joining an established freight forwarding group of companies with registered entities in both the UK and in Gibraltar, as both their in-house legal advisor and as part of the management team.

She has also negotiated and finalised commercial and freight forwarding contracts and has mediated/resolved internal HR-employment matters amicably without resorting to litigation. Most recently, Louise has been instrumental to the group of companies with preparations for Brexit, having close liaison with HM Customs Gibraltar, HM Customs UK, HM Government of Gibraltar, DEFRA UK and customs agents throughout Europe. She is known for her upbeat personality, is a great problem solver and has successfully lead a team of 24 employees.
