Bermuda’s Attorney-General’s Chambers: Anti-Bribery, Anti-Corruption, Anti-Fraud; but Pro-Work/Life Balance

The Attorney-General’s Chambers, under the supervision of the Attorney-General and the Solicitor-General, are the inhouse legal advisors to the Government of Bermuda and its various ministries and departments.

The A-G’s Chambers performs a large number of functions, including legal advice, legal representation, the conduct of litigation, as well as law reform and parliamentary drafting.

Two recent projects of enormous significance, locally and internationally, include modernization of Bermuda’s anti-bribery and anti-corruption laws, as well as Bermuda’s anti-fraud laws, as recently announced by Trevor Moniz, the Minister for Legal Affairs and Attorney-General:

It is refreshing to discover that, despite the professional pressures which they must face, at least one member of the Attorney-General’s Chambers maintains a proper work-life balance.

See, in particular, Gregory Howard’s piece for the Toronto Globe and Mail, entitled “When I took a job in Bermuda, I found a place where I could put work in its proper perspective”.
