We can meet clients directly in Nassau, although our home office is in Geneva, Switzerland, and we are always accessible to clients, regardless of their location, by videoconference. Our Bahamas Arbitration Lawyers Desk has access to domestic jurisprudence and doctrine, while speaking English and multiple other languages.
