Profile
Andre was admitted to practice in Saint Lucia in November 2017 and in Jamaica in January 2019. He has been with the firm since August 2017 and is currently a member of the firm's Litigation Department and Intellectual Property Practice Group. His litigation practice includes bank litigation, debt recovery and general civil litigation, while also providing general legal advice.

His intellectual property practice covers the full spectrum of trademark matters in Saint Lucia, including, but not limited to, advising clients on registration, renewal, assignment, authorised user agreements and infringement. He also advises clients on copyright matters and brand protection.

Andre is a graduate of the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus, where he obtained his Bachelors of Laws (LL.B.) degree with First Class Honours. He later obtained his Legal Education Certificate from the Norman Manley Law School. During his academic pursuits, he attained several awards and scholarships including the Jamaican Bar Association Bursary and the Foga Daley (Special) Scholarship, the latter for strong performance in the area of intellectual property.

Andre is a contributor to the Chambers and Partners Global Practice Guide and has co-authored the Saint Lucia chapter on Trademarks. Andre is also a contributor to the Bar Association of Saint Lucia's magazine, "The Brief". His most recent publication, "Businesses, Social Media and Intellectual Property", discusses the importance of social media to businesses today and the delicate interplay between businesses, social media and intellectual property as greater emphasis is placed on brand protection in the competition for social currency.

He is also a member of the International Trademark Association (INTA) and currently serves on the Intellectual Property Caribbean Association (IPCA) Marketing Committee.
