ParrisWhittaker recognized as “Law firm of the year - Bahamas” in 2 categories

Bahamas-based boutique law firm ParrisWhittaker was awarded the 2012 “E-Commerce Law firm of the Year in Bahamas” this month after a grueling yearlong decision-making process by the Corporate International Magazine Global Award committee. 

With exposure to over a quarter million members of the legal and commercial worlds, this International award is not the first for the fledgling firm, who most recently also added the Cross Border Law Award for Firm of the Year (Bahamas) to its growing list of local and international accolades, and will certainly not be the last.

A full service law firm, ParrisWhittaker specializes in the areas of commercial law and commercial litigation, real estate, maritime, admiralty, personal injury and probate cases, and boasts a high level of client satisfaction and an impressive success rate. While all this could be considered ‘reward’ enough, this latest award’s high level recognition is welcome validation of the vision that drove Arthur Parris and Jacy Whittaker, founding partners of ParrisWhittaker, to leave a high profile Bahamas-based law firm to start their own high-efficiency, streamlined firm, committed to providing quality legal counsel to Bahamians at home and abroad.

As recently added partner, litigator Kenra Parris-Whittaker affirms, “At its core, Parris Whittaker will always be about the Bahamas, the people and the companies who have decided to operate here. Protecting their rights and interests at home and abroad is always going to be our priority. Being recognized for that is wonderful, and we appreciate every opportunity for international exposure as a means of enhancing our capabilities to better serve our clients.

Her sentiments are substantiated by the firm’s mission statement, “Global Experience. Local Knowledge.“ which informs- and is evident in- ParrisWhittaker’s every move. As founding partner Jacy Whittaker asserts, “A win for ParrisWhittaker is a win for the Bahamas and our clients. We’re proud of our accomplishments, and receiving multiple international awards within our first few years of operation is truly encouraging.”

The honor was conferred on August 1, 2012
