Her clients range from leading global and local corporate entities to high net worth individuals. She also has experience in dealing with work permit and immigration issues and also regarding the employment aspects of shipping law, including crew contracts.
Caren was actively involved in liaising with the Isle of Man Government as part of the consultation process for the Employment Act 2006 and related secondary legislation that changed the face of the Isle of Man employment-law landscape.
