The prize, which was established in 1943 in memory of George Sayle Johnson, was awarded jointly to Adam and advocate Emily Johnson.
Adam, a Senior Associate in DQ’s Corporate & Commercial Department, wrote his winning essay on the following subject: “What reforms to Manx substantive law or procedure are necessary in order to make the Isle of Man more competitive as an offshore financial centre”?
Adam is pictured with Deemster Corlett and Tim Swift, President of the Law Society at the award presentation.
Managing Director, Mark Dougherty commented: “We are extremely proud of Adam and his ongoing achievements, he really is a credit to DQ. The George Johnson Law Prize has a long and distinguished history and it’s a great honour to win it. The subject matter which Adam selected for his essay also highlights his vested interest in the success of the Isle of Man, something which we all share here at DQ.”
