This year's focus is on changes to legal regulatory regimes in the Caribbean, both actual and
potential, as a result of, of inter alia, international assistance and/or restructuring programmes.
We will attempt to highlight a wide range of topics in this general area, including the effects of
regulatory changes to: corporate law, anti-money laundering, bribery and corruption rules,
insolvency law, rules related to mergers and acquisitions, competition law, international
commercial arbitration and litigation, law governing letters of credit, security interests, venture
capital, international trade law, international business law, employment law and energy law.
The Cave Hill Faculty of Law has assembled a team of distinguished academics and legal
practitioners from the Caribbean and North America to make presentations on topics of
immediate interest, including on: Transforming Tax and other Regulatory Regimes; Moving
Commercial Regulation into the 21st Century; Harmonising ICT Policies, Legislation and
Regulatory Procedures in the Caribbean.
In addition to the high level of the intellectual content of this year's CCLW, the event continues to
provide a unique and rare networking opportunity for Caribbean Commercial lawyers to meet and
exchange information and ideas among themselves and with their counterparts from the
Caribbean, North America and Europe.

Don t be surprised if you see the people at
the Desalination Company of T&T walking
around with an extra bounce these days. It s
for a darn good reason. At the relatively tender
age of 15, the Point Lisas-based Desalcott has
struck it big, being rated one of the four top
companies in its field in the world.
Executive chairman of the HKL Group of
Companies Yashmid Karamath credited the
enviable achievement to their focus-driven
Desalcott moves up
approach and said the accolade was won through
hard work from "captain to cook."
Desalcott, a special purpose round-the-clock
company, was established to sell desalinated seawater
to the Water and Sewerage Authority.
The company was completely taken over by locals
with the acquisition of all of the shares owned by
General Electric, in what was described as a historic
transaction in 2012. The plant was constructed for
US$150 million and kicked off its operations with
an initial production capacity of (24 MGD). It
increased its production capacity to 40 (MGD) in
2014. Karamath also praised the foresight of his
brother, the late founder of Desalcott, Hafeez Kara-
math, who laid the solid foundation for the entity
which the current management team built upon
on the way to its present accomplishment.
Karamath said in an interview that he was always
driven by a passion to have Desalcott recognised
as the leading desalination company in the world.
"I have always had a desire for a state-of-the-
art company to compete on the world market and
that is what we have experienced and have achieved.
Today, we are 100 per cent locally owned and it
is completely run by locals. It is a very gratifying
time for all of us, from the proverbial captain to
Shedding temporarily his known reluctance to
grab media headlines, Karamath, who invoked some
bragging rights, said he was not totally surprised
by the accolade achieved by the company.
"I am not completely surprised as everything
happens because of the Almighty. God decides on
your success based on the efforts you put out...and
we knew what our goal was, and we still have more
goals on the horizon.
"I am not blowing our own trumpet, but we have
put a lot of effort into what we do here and this
is manifested by the success we have been able to
chalk up so far.
"Two years ago, we were named in an industry
magazine as one of the top ten in the world, so we
have climbed the ladder being in the top four today."
Desalcott is not resting on its laurels and has its
sight on being named the leading desalination plant
in the world. The firm is determined to reach the
pinnacle in this industry.
With an eye on the future, Desalcott has an
evolving training programme for young people who
are interested in entering the field.
