Professional Experience:

Viola joined the firm of Harry B.

As an Associate at HBSL, Viola developed her practice in civil litigation and has engaged in wide range of matters with a particular focus on contractual disputes, labour matters, and personal injury and fatal accident claims. In January 2021 Viola became a partner in the Firm.

As a part of her labour practice, Viola has acted for a number of large local employers, including international financial institutions and hotels with a local presence. Viola has also acted for local and international insurers in disputes concerning personal injury and fatal accident claims, as well as claims arising from structural damage sustained during major hurricanes.
