Areas of Practice
GENERAL LEGAL ADVICE
When faced with a legal question, the best advice is to consult an attorney. We can assist with a broad range of areas, and if we are unable to assist, we can refer you to another firm or attorney who can.
When someone is injured or killed in an accident, there may be a claim for compensation. We have experience navigating the process in and out of court.
Clinical negligence occurs when errors are made by medical practitioners or facilities. These are highly technical claims to pursue, and we have navigated several high profile clinical negligence cases in Jamaica and Belize.
If you are owed money from a written or oral agreement, an attorney can help with recovery. This begins with a demand and proceeds, if necessary, through the court process.
REGISTRATION AND INCORPORATION
Are you registering a company or business in Jamaica, Belize or Barbados? Do you want to register an offshore company. We can register your business, and also draft essential contracts, including NDAs, shareholders' agreements, employment contracts, IP assignment, and so on.
Contracts serve an important purpose - to clarify responsibilities and obligations, and ensure clarity in the agreement of parties. We draft and amend contracts of varying complexity based on your specific needs. From shareholders' agreements to lease agreements, let us know your concerns and we can advise you.
How will you protect your great idea? Intellectual property law protects ideas, works, and even methods of doing things. We can provide you with advice, and assist with the process of registering your intellectual property.
ESTATE AND PROBATE
Estate planning is critical for ensuring that your assets are not lost after you pass. We can help with planning while you have a choice concerning your assets, and assist your representatives to carry out your wishes after you pass.
PROPERTY SALE AND PURCHASE
Property lawyers navigate the legal and procedural requirements for buying and selling property.
ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION
Not every dispute needs to end up in court. Other methods of addressing the issues include negotiations, mediation, and arbitration. These methods can, in some cases, save costs while arriving at mutually beneficial conclusions.
