Several members of the firm have played for the Bahamas in Rugby and Soccer as well as donated their time coaching youth teams and national teams.
One of our partners drafted the Articles and Memo of Association for the Eleuthera Land Conservancy which was incorporated in order to raise funds to acquire and preserve Lighthouse Point for the benefit of future generations of Bahamians.
One Eleuthera. Foundation
We have been involved in the preparation of the constitutive documents for the One Eleuthera Foundation, a non-profit development organisation committed to promotion and furthering the islands economic, environmental and social development.
We fully support the Bahamas Humane Society in its endeavours to combat animal cruelty, educate the public and to improve the welfare of animals in The Bahamas. One of our partners is Legal Counsel for the charity and also a member of the Board. They are also representing the Crown in the first animal cruelty prosecution under the Animal Protection & Control Act, 2010 and is engaged in the drafting of regulations to improve the conditions of the Surrey horses and the proper enforcement of the laws designed to ensure their welfare.
We have also been involved in BAARK one of our largest animal control charities, working in conjunction with the BHS to provide free spay and neuter programs country wide so as to reduce the population of unwanted and starving animals.
Hurricane Irma made landfall in The Bahamas in September 2017, leaving many parts of the Southern Islands particularly Mayaguana, Inagua, Crooked Island, Acklins, Long Cay and Ragged Island, uninhabitable.
Over 1,000 persons were evacuated from the Southern Islands to the Island of New Providence and remained there for several weeks until governmental officials determined that their islands were safe enough for their return.
Lennox Paton Partners, Associates and Staff members hosted an evening of food and games at the Kendall GL Isaacs Gym at the Q. E. Sports Center where nearly 100 evacuees, many of which were young children and adolescents, stayed in the aftermath of the storm.
