Biography of Crystal C. Corbett Knowles

Crystal is an attorney by profession. She obtained an Associate of Arts Degree in Law and Criminal Justice Studies from the former College of The Bahamas and a Bachelor of Laws Degree from the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus, Barbados. In 2008, she graduated from the Eugene Dupuch Law School, located in The Bahamas, with a Legal Education Certificate and was admitted as a Counsel and Attorney of the Supreme Court of The Commonwealth of The Bahamas in the same year.

Crystal, recognizing that she wanted to expand her scope of experience, left private practice to follow her passion for the field of compliance. She began her career in the financial services industry in 2010, after having obtained post graduate certifications in Compliance and Anti-Money Laundering from the Bahamas Institute of Financial Services. With this achievement, she was afforded her first opportunity to work within the regulatory environment as an Officer in the Authorizations Department of the Securities Commission of The Bahamas.

Over the past 11 years, Crystal’s legal, regulatory and compliance experience has evolved. She previously served as Compliance Officer for a large law firm as well as Compliance Counsel at the largest resort and casino development in the Caribbean. While at the casino, she developed a keen interest for and expertise in gaming compliance. She presently heads the Gaming Board for The Bahamas’ Legal Department in the capacity of Chief Counsel which is a role that she defines as multifaceted and exciting.
