Meet Jo Yarnall
Paralegal | Cayman Islands
I was raised in London and Essex in the UK and trained as a Legal Secretary and Paralegal in 1999. I gained a wealth of experience in many legal fields at a local solicitors before commuting to the city of London each day working for DAC Beachcroft LLP. I always had a desire to live and work abroad, then an exciting opportunity came up in 2011 at Walkers Cayman so I took the plunge and went for it! After 9 years my husband and I left the island for 'roll over' with plans to travel the world for 18 months before returning. Our plans changed due to the pandemic but we were lucky enough to spend quality time with family in the UK and even tie the knot in true Covid style!
I was delighted to return to Cayman in October 2021 and even 10 days quarantine wasn't so bad. I joined the team at Bedell officially on 8 November 2021 and settled in well due to a great team of colleagues. I am really looking forward to progressing my role with Bedell.
My main interests outside of work are lots of dog walks – we adopted our puppy, Daisy in December 2021 and she keeps us busy! Charity events and going to the beach. I also like to catch up with friends over a glass of wine.
