Rosalind K. Smith Millar,
Rosalind joined the firm in 2002, having been admitted to the Bar in Barbados in 1987, and is the partner in charge of our intellectual property department. While she has a wide practice experience, she currently focuses on intellectual property law, real property and mortgage transactions.
Her real property practice serves property developers, individual and corporate clients in the sale and purchase of real property, as well as lenders in the residential and commercial loans arena.
In addition to being a delegate to the International Trademark Association and the Intellectual Property Caribbean Association, Rosalind is a member of the International Trademark Association’s Trademark Office Practices Committee (Latin America and Caribbean Sub-Committee) for the 2016-17 biennium, and will continue in that role for the biennium 2018-19. She has also served for many years on the Advisory Committee on Intellectual Property (which advises the Barbados Government on IP issues), chairing the committee from 2004 to 2008. Rosalind holds an LL.M in intellectual property law awarded in 2008 by the University of Turin in conjunction with the World Intellectual Property Organization Worldwide Academy. She received the Microsoft Award for best research paper, and still often writes for international publications in the area of intellectual property.
She earned her LL.B (Hons.) from the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill, in 1985 and received her Legal Education Certificate from the Hugh Wooding Law School in Trinidad & Tobago in 1987.
Outside of the firm, Rosalind is the deputy chairman of the Community Legal Services Commission, a statutory board which administers the provision of government-funded legal aid in Barbados. Over the span of her career, she has also served the Barbados Bar Association in several key roles.
