Cains Advocates has announced that Matthew Quinn has been called to the Manx Bar, having joined the firm as a trainee in July 2013.
Born and raised in the Isle of Man, Matthew passed his Manx Bar examinations at the first attempt last year, after previously having been awarded a Postgraduate Diploma in Legal Practice with Distinction from the University of Law, Chester and having graduated with a 2:1 law degree from Durham University.
Matthew said: “It means a great deal to me to qualify as a Manx Advocate. I am extremely grateful to Cains for all the advice and support provided during my post-graduation studies and the period of my training contract, and I am looking forward to gaining further experience within the firm’s corporate department.”
Matthew’s principal, Richard Vanderplank, commented:
“Matthew has demonstrated real commitment and aptitude throughout his time as a trainee and I am delighted to see him qualify. It is important for the future success of the Manx legal profession and the wider business community that there are talented corporate and commercial legal resources available in the Isle of Man. It is pleasing to see these resources being supplemented by an intelligent, young Manxman choosing to return here in order to pursue his career.”
