Bahamas Consulting

I was raised in The Bahamas and still have family living and working there.  I do not practice law in The Bahamas, but my close ties to the island nation allows me to astutely consult with developers and investors seeking direct foreign investment approval for resorts, hotels, condominiums, and marina projects, from a uniquely Bahamian perspective.

I communicate with all branches of the Bahamian government as well as members of the Bahamian legal and business communities.  In May 2003, I was instrumental in arranging for the Prime Minister of The Bahamas, The Rt. Hon. Perry G. Christie, visiting Orlando, Florida, to speak with Central Florida's community leaders.
