Genell K Sands

Experience

As a partner at the firm, Genell K. Sands is one of the best in the business. She is an accomplished attorney experienced in a wide variety of legal areas. The scope of her expertise includes civil and commercial litigation, arbitration, dispute resolution, insurance law, personal injury litigation, fatal accident claims, industrial accidents, company liquidations, and employment law.

Genell received her Associates of Arts in History Degree from the College of The Bahamas in 1994, then went on to complete her Bachelor of Laws Degree from the University of Leeds, England in 1997.  She then completed the Bar Vocational Course at The College of Law in England in 1998, and was called to both the English and Bahamas Bars in 1998.

Since then, Genell has dedicated herself to advocating for her clients and continues to strive for excellence to this day. One notable case, Carolyn Rolle v The College of The Bahamas, stands out as a prime example of Genell’s legal prowess.  She successfully argued on behalf of her client by demonstrating that the one year limitation period applicable to persons acting in execution of a statutory or other public duty applied to a slip and fall claim brought against the college.

Genell is a member of the Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn and The Bahamas Bar Association. Apart from her legal career, Genell highly values the time that she spends her family.
