In over 35 years of practice, I've helped many local, regional, or international clients navigate the legal system in the Bahamas. I've developed a deep specialty in real estate conveyancing and mortgages, and have successfully completed matters that other attorneys (local or not) found too challenging. I have worked with virtually all of the area's lending institutions, and non-local clients have come from the U.S., U.K., Canada, South Africa, Italy, France, and other countries.

My real estate deals and other projects have encompassed both the local and international, and have included:

•Shopping centers development and condominiumization

•Condo complexes

•Mixed use projects

•GBPA and Other Licensure

•Local financing

•Securities Commission work

•Industrial accidents

•Pharmaceutical deals

•Corporate formations

•Management of both Bahamian and foreign owned companies

•Wills, estates, and probate matters.

•Cross border joint ventures and financing

•Joint ventures
