As a Bahamas-based litigator, the key to winning is gearing up to go to war...and arriving over-prepared.
I would never walk into a courtroom without more research, more evidence, and more angles than the opposition. Since I don't know how much ammunition the opposition will bring, this means over-preparing on all fronts. Even if not everything gets used, I'll be able to think quickly on my feet to win my clients' applications, writs, submissions, and hearings.
My partner, Arthur K. Parris, Jr., and I founded Parris Whittaker in 2011, after leaving Callenders & Co., one of the oldest and most prestigious law firms in Grand Bahama.
Parris Whittaker has a full-range corporate, finance, and real estate legal practice, allowing us to provide reliable and skilled local counsel for many an international corporation. We can take a deal from inception to execution, take a case from submission to victory, and provide all legal consulting and litigation-protection services along the way. We also handle licensure- crucial but often baffling for foreign counsel.
I'm highly active in the Grand Bahama business community. I am a director, advisor, and/or committee chair for the Grand Bahama Chamber of Commerce, Rotary International, Freeport Law Society, and Salvation Army. I'm also a member of the American Bar Association, Ontario Bar Association, and Bahamas Bar Association.
