Apart from English, he is French educated and is fluent in Afro Caribbean Creole languages.

It prides itself as a firm with international exposure having been involved in the establishment of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) within Europe through the European Commission and Parliament. ADR in European domestic laws was entirely due to Mr Murdanaigum’s involvement with senior French and Belgian Judges and the firm paved the way for the ADR system within the European framework.
