Adam has appeared in the highest courts and tribunals: he was instructed in an appeal to the European Court of Human Rights (on appeal from the House of Lords), appeared in July 2017 in the Supreme Court in the case of Michalak, and has also appeared as an advocate on a number of occasions before the Privy Council, including Adamas v Cheung [2011] I.R.L.R. 1014 which concerned variation of contract.

Adam was admitted to the Bar of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court in 2007 and has since then, as a junior and now as silk, regularly appeared in numerous cases in the Eastern Caribbean courts. He has advised and appeared on numerous injunctive applications (for applicants and respondents) and has appeared (successfully) in lengthy trial proceedings. He has appeared in various first instance courts (including but not limited to the BVI Commercial Court) and before the Eastern Caribbean Court of Appeal. The majority of his Caribbean work involves offshore companies, investment funds or trusts, and often involves cross-border aspects of private international law. He is admitted to the Bar of the BVI (without restriction) and St Kitts and Nevis (for specific cases).
