The extremity of his integrity has established the Nassau native as one of the leading legal authorities in all of Grand Bahama. Initially, Mr. Parris’s clients choose him for his accessible approach to the law. Due to years of practice, the experienced lawyer can make even the most complex matters clear and compelling for businesspeople who either lack legal training, or familiarity with the intricacies of the Bahamian legal system.
After the initial transaction(s), Mr. Parris’s clients always come to rely on him. His depth, breadth and knowledge of local law is vast having been acquired over thirty years of practice: he has successfully handled challenging and complex matters for his local and international clientele. Mr. Parris’s projects have encompassed both the local and international, and have included shopping centers, condominium complexes, mixed-use projects, pure commercial transactions, licensing, local financing, Securities Commission work, industrial accidents, pharmaceutical deals, complicated corporate formations, and the management of both Bahamian and foreign-owned companies. On the personal front, he’s handled wills, estates, and probate matters.
The real estate/corporate lawyer got his start in 1979, eventually becoming a partner at Callenders & Co., the Bahamas’ oldest and most venerated law firm. In 2011, he and associate Jacy Whittaker had a vision of a leaner, more efficient law practice, and they left Callenders together to form ParrisWhittaker.
Currently, Mr. Parris’s international clients hail from the US, UK, Canada, South Africa, Italy, France, and other countries. He has worked with virtually all of the area’s lending institutions. He is a member of the Bahamas Bar Association.
