Part of the Barbados office’s Commercial Litigation, Restructuring and Insolvency Department, Taylor Laurayne is the Associate responsible for the firm’s bankruptcy and insolvency portfolio. Although she still maintains a diverse civil and corporate litigation portfolio, Taylor’s practice is largely dedicated to advising and working with receivers, trustees, liquidators and creditors of solvent and insolvent estates with assets located throughout the region. Taylor is a member of INSOL International, a world-wide federation of professionals who specialise in insolvency, and has appeared in the High Courts of Barbados and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines in complex and highly contentious cross-border insolvency matters.
Taylor was awarded a Bachelor of Laws with First Class Honours from the University of the West
Indies and subsequently attended the Hugh Wooding Law School in Trinidad and Tobago. While at the Hugh Wooding Law School, Taylor received numerous academic awards, including the Council of Legal Education’s Prize for Most Outstanding Student and the Barbados Bar Association’s Prize for the Best Performance by a Student from Barbados. Taylor was also recognised for her advocacy skills and was selected to represent the law school at the Margaret Forte Regional Mooting Competition and later awarded the Principal’s Award for Advocacy and the Robert Matthew Sellier Prize for Best Performance in Trial Advocacy. Taylor graduated the Hugh Wooding Law School as class valedictorian and was the sole recipient of the Legal Education Certificate of Merit.
Taylor is currently admitted to practice in Barbados and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. Outside of the office, Taylor can often be found on her yoga mat or enjoying a good meal with friends and family.
