‘Advertising Stipulations Keeping People From Justice’
“Head of Future Services International, Yaneek Page, is charging that the country’s rules governing advertising by lawyers are denying many Jamaicans access to legal services.
The General Legal Council puts limits on how lawyers can advertise and bars them from advertising their practices in the fields of personal injury or fatal accidents, except in a limited form. Among the stipulations in relation to personal injury, is that the advertisement not contain any words implying that the attorney is a specialist, expert or leader in any field of practice. They also prohibit a lawyer’s advertisement from containing any testimonials or endorsements concerning the professional in question. Page argues that the rules are outdated and leave people ignorant of the services offered by various lawyers. She is also concerned about the wording of clauses which say the advertisement must not be vulgar or sensational. Page says she will be writing to the justice ministry as she seeks to lobby the government to have the rules changed in relation to the advertising of legal services.”

Our Managing Director was featured in The Gleaner & PSOJ: ’50 Under Fifty’ – Article, Published October 30, 2012.
Yaneek Page is pioneer in litigant support services and enterprise wide risk management in the Caribbean, having founded Future Services International Limited, the first company in the region to specialise in legal funding and helping companies manage enterprise risks.
Page is widely regarded as one of Jamaica’s most dynamic young entrepreneurs. Interestingly, she describes herself as a late bloomer.
“I’m not sure I would describe myself as a driven or highly motivated child. I wanted to make my parents proud, so I used to have ambitions of becoming a doctor or a lawyer. I would definitely say I was a late bloomer who didn’t come into my own until university,” Page said.
At university, Page distinguished herself as an outstanding scholar, having been awarded the Sir Arthur Lewis Institute of Social and Economic Studies Scholarship from the Ministry of Education in Jamaica in 2003.
Page went on to create history at the institute by graduating at the top of her class and winning all the awards for that year.
“I entered the University of the West Indies by the skin of my teeth and, five years later, I had completed two degrees, received a full academic scholarship and created history,” Page said.
Page has a bachelor’s degree in management studies and psychology and a master’s degree in social policy. She is also a certified trainer in entrepreneurship, a certified business resilience manager, and trainer in enterprise-wide risk management and business continuity planning.
“My passion is to help others live better lives and selfactualise. Being boastful will never advance those objectives. I’m from a family of entrepreneurs and I have seen riches go to rags with the change of an industry or economy. That keeps me grounded,” Page said.
Page won the regional NCB Nation Builder Awards 2011, in the category ‘Women in Business’. She is the creator of The Innovators, Jamaica’s first business-focused reality TV series, which aims to help struggling entrepreneurs and skilled professionals revamp their businesses and make more money.
Page is also the creator of Camp Millionaire, the Caribbea’s first entrepreneurship summer camp for teens, where teenagers are taught the fundamentals of entrepreneurship, business management and wealth creation.
In October 2011, Page was an invitee at a special Women’s Entrepreneurial Network event hosted by US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.

Canada and Jamaica Partner to Battle Medical Malpractice
A recent partnership with a prominent Canadian health risk management company has been formed to assist a Jamaican company, Future Services International (FSI), resolve medical malpractice cases in Jamaica. Plagued by a culture of silence among Jamaican doctors, medical malpractice victims there are believed to be under litigated and unjustly denied. As a result, of this silence the Jamaican government determined that outside intervention was necessary to help medical malpractice victims obtain accurate independent medical reports and opinion as well as damage awards.
According to the managing director of FSI, Yaneek Page, the Canadian health risk management company they have partnered with is considered a leading authority in health information and medical record analysis; and, has been considered so for more than ten years. Page explained that FSI chose this particular health risk management company because it has a wide range of capabilities in locating experts as well as forming teams of experts, conducting health-care litigation research, and training others in health-care risk management.
