We are pleased to announce and extend congratulations to Stephen Wilson QC, a Partner in the Dispute Resolution Group in the Turks and Caicos Islands Office, who was appointed Queen’s Counsel on 4th March 2013.
Sir Gordon Ward, former Chief Justice of the Turks and Caicos Islands, recommended Stephen to Her Majesty the Queen prior to the end of his tenure, having recognised Stephen as possessing the requisite standard of distinction to receive this great honour. The ceremony took place at the Supreme Court of the Turks and Caicos Island and was presided over by current Chief Justice, Sir Edwin Goldsbrough. The Governor of the Turks and Caicos Islands, Ric Todd, presented Stephen with his ‘Letters Patent’ signed on behalf of the Queen.
Stephen was called to the Bar of England and Wales in 1990 and to the Bar of the Turks and Caicos Islands in 2002. He was educated at University College London and the Council for Legal Education, Holborn and is a member of the Inner Temple. In December 2012, Stephen joined Graham Thompson as the Partner in charge of their Turks and Caicos Islands’ office.
