Lawyer Rankings(Rising stars)
Brian Simms QC heads up the litigation and dispute resolution, and restructuring and insolvency groups at Lennox Paton, which are involved in some of the Bahamas’ most high-profile, high-value disputes. ‘Generally regarded as being at the top of its game‘, the large local team has an extensive track record in insolvency proceedings, company disputes, fraud and asset tracing claims, shareholder disputes and arbitration proceedings. In addition to Simms’ wide-ranging practice and Sophia Rolle-Kapousouzoglou’s insolvency and asset recovery expertise, the ‘dynamic‘ Marco Turnquest regularly acts for trustees, personal representatives and beneficiaries in contentious trust issues. A notable recent highlight saw Turnquest and Simms represent Delanson Services Limited in Matteo Volpi v Delanson Services Limited and Gabriele Volpi, a recent Bahamian Supreme Court decision concerning the court’s jurisdiction limits to act in trust-related arbitrations. Other names to note include Metta MacMillan-Hughes, Christopher Jenkins, senior associate Chizelle Cargill and associate Ramonne Gardiner.
