Ashley graduated from the Berkeley Institute in 2013 and obtained an Associate’s Degree in Arts and Science with Distinction from Bermuda College in 2015.

Ashley obtained a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) at the University of Greenwich in London in 2018, graduating with First Class Honours. After receiving her LLB, she completed the Legal Practice Course (LPC) at BPP University in London Holborn.

In 2016, she received a bursary from Appleby. In 2018, she was one of the recipients of Appleby’s Legal Education Award and training contract. Ashley undertook her pupillage with Appleby from September 2019 to September 2020. She spent the first 6 months of her two-year training at the firm in the Insurance team under the mentorship of Counsel Matthew Carr and the following 6 months in the Corporate team under the mentorship of Partner Jerome Wilson.

Ashley thanked Matthew and Jerome, “for impacting my legal development by providing me with a challenging, yet rewarding first-year and making me become more confident in writing, speaking to clients and being able to explain Bermuda law in a simplistic manner. She continued to say, “Matthew and Jerome, your work ethic, dedication to clients, keen attention to detail and multi-tasking skills are note-worthy and are skills I wish to develop and hone throughout my legal career.” Ashley also gave special mention to Partner Clive Langley, “for always taking the time to chat with me and for his endless encouragement and continued support.”

Partner Jerome Wilson said “It was a pleasure to work with Ashley during her training period. Her attention to detail and overall approach to our profession encapsulates the ethos that we here at Appleby want all of our associates to aspire. Ashley has a bright future ahead of her and I wish her all the best.”

Ashley is presently in her third seat in the Dispute Resolution team under the mentorship of Counsel Hannah Tildesley.

John Wasty, Head of Dispute Resolution commented “Ashley has competence, confidence and courage, all of which are fine qualities for a lawyer and which will stand her in good stead for a successful career in this honourable profession.”

Ashley said “I am thrilled to be part of this esteemed profession and for my legal career ahead where I will strive to uphold the integrity of the judiciary and the Bermuda Bar.”
