Biography

Sharalee Gittens was educated at the University of the West of England, Bristol where she pursued a four year Bachelor of Laws degree in Law with Spanish, during which time she spent six months in the Law Faculty of the University of Seville and two months in the Malaga office of one of Spain's leading commercial law firms Larrauri Y Lopez Ante. She also received her professional legal training in Bristol, England, where she undertook the Bar Vocational Course and was subsequently called to the Bar of England and Wales in July 2009. Sharalee commenced her career in Barbados working at Chancery Chambers from May 2010. Sharalee, a Barbadian national who uses English as a first language is fluent in Spanish and also speaks basic French, took up membership with the Barbados Bar Association in June 2011. Although working in a variety of fields, Sharalee has focused her work in the ambit of Commercial & Corporate Law. Besides providing legal opinions and drafting financial and security documents for various international commercial transactions, some of her assignments have included transactions concerning groups of Barbadian and International shipping companies, the acquisition of interests in groups of offshore and global groups of companies as well as various streaming and funding contracts for the mining and exploration of gold and other mineral interests. Sharalee also manages a portfolio of insurance companies with an emphasis on the incorporation and licensing of segregated cell companies and other complex structures. Another main focus of her work is in employment law advising corporate employers from the point of recruitment through engagement, variation of contracts, employment disputes and termination, both contentious and non-contentious. Sharalee became an associate member of the Caribbean Branch of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators in April 2014 and completed her formal training as a member of STEP in 2017. In 2016 she assisted in an international trust arbitration concerning a Barbados purpose trust and in that year also co-authored the Barbados chapter of a publication titled Attorney-Client privilege in the Americas, a project spearheaded by the American Bar Association. Sharalee has been an annual contributor to the Doing Business survey project of the World Bank since 2013 for the insolvency, labour law and security interest areas.
