Damian is a highly regarded Consultant Advocate, Commissioner for Oaths, and in-house counsel at LVW Law, with a notable career in international organisations including working abroad in Europe. His extensive experience advising blue-chip insurers on compliance and legal issues has only added to his formidable legal expertise. During his stint overseas, Damian also served as Data Protection Officer for a leading third-party funds administrator in Luxembourg, further expanding his professional scope.

 

One of his significant roles was acting as the instructing lawyer in the landmark tax case of HMRC v Estate of Bower in the High Court of England and Wales. This case dealt with the inheritance tax treatment of discounted gift schemes and further solidified his reputation as a legal authority in the offshore insurance field.  At the same time, Damian is very familiar with the local legal challenges which can affect individuals on the Island and has engaged in a range of both contentious and non-contentious work over the years.

 

Despite his attainment overseas, Damian always felt the pull of his island homeland and eventually returned to the Isle of Man. Here he continues to make a substantial contribution to the field of law, leveraging his broadened worldview and sharpened competencies gained from his diverse roles.

 

As a graduate of Cardiff University and the rigorous Manx Bar vocational training, Damian takes immense pride in the comprehensive training he received from these institutions. This robust educational background has been instrumental in shaping Damian’s legal acumen and professional demeanor.

 

In addition to his current role, Damian’s past positions have also been influential. He was an elected member of the Law Society Council and chaired their Ethics Committee. Further, he served as a Trustee of the AXA Isle of Man Staff Pension Scheme and was the former Chairman of the Sayle Gallery.

 

With his international experience, commitment to justice, local recognition, and diverse roles, Damian is undeniably a prominent figure at LVW Law and in the wider legal community.
