Lennox Paton

Lennox Paton 'stands out as one of the leading firms in the legal market. The law firm has unswerving dedication and commitment, top-notch lawyers and the ability to stay a step ahead of the other side'. The firm's financial services department advises financial institutions on banking and trust matters in the Bahamas, while the real estate and resort development group is widely respected for its advice on the acquisition, project financing and planning of large, integrated mixed-use resort and residential developments. The group also has considerable experience in FDIs, fractional and condo-hotel structures, and timeshares. The litigation department handles commercial litigation involving trust, banking and insurance matters, insolvency and asset tracing issues, property work, shareholder disputes, and director liability and company law. As 'a standout practitioner in the Bahamas', Brian Simms QC leads the litigation and insolvency and restructuring teams and is highly rated for complex commercial disputes, David Johnstone heads up the real estate, resort development and private client groups, and Michael Paton leads the firm’s corporate and commercial, investment funds and banking and finance departments. Other highly regarded litigators include Metta MacMillan-Hughes, Sophia Rolle-Kapousouzoglou, Marco Turnquest and Christopher Jenkins, while Michelle Neville-Clarke and Castino Sands are key advisers for transactional matters. Corporate and financing expert Dwayne Whylly is the senior associate to note, and the Nassau office was 'greatly strengthened' in 2019 by the addition of consultant Sir David Hayton, following his retirement from the Caribbean Court of Justice.
