FREEPORT, GRAND BAHAMA, 25 October 2018- Bahamas- based boutique law firm ParrisWhittaker, once again demonstrates its pedigree in excellence by dominating the ACQ LAW Awards across ten (10) categories within the Bahamas, and capturing the lead in one regional category.
ParrisWhittaker, a law firm named for its founders Arthur K Parris, Jacy Whittaker and Kenra Parris-Whittaker runs on an innovative platform that streamlines it operations for maximum impact and efficiency. Its attention to detail in and out of the courtroom is no small factor in its major success.

The ACQ LAW Awards are adjudicated by industry peers from around the world, with thousands of contributing members from every level and area of the legal industry nominating and voting for the leaders in legal fields across the globe.
For Jacy Whittaker, the ACQ LAW Awards are a powerful reminder of how important it is to stay creative, effective and connected even within the legal fields. “Staying relevant, and not getting left behind are two of the most pressing concerns in any field right now. We don’t see it as a threat, but as an opportunity to challenge how we position ourselves, how we connect with our clients and how we provide solutions.” He continued, “Our goal is always to look after the needs of our clients, and to keep pushing the Bahamas into sharper focus when it comes to the legal industry. We are excited to see that we’re succeeding on both fronts.”
