Doing business in The Bahamas is a pleasure: take it from us. But it's not a matter of applying common (or Commonwealth) law.
Our licensing regulations, tax regime, and local approval process can still prove confusing to outsiders.
That’s why so many global and regional businesses look to ParrisWhittaker for their legal needs.
We keep our firm focused, our growth global and our processes progressive yet accessible. We make business a pleasure, as we help local, regional and international businesses navigate Bahamian laws and regulations with our distinctly local touch.
