Jacy Whittaker Joins Leaders in Law as the Exclusive Commercial Litigation Law Member in the Bahamas

Leaders in Law, the leading platform in its field, is delighted to welcome Jacy Whittaker as our exclusively recommended & endorsed Commercial Litigation Law expert in the Bahamas. Jacy’s office is located in Freeport.

For Jacy Whittaker, the key to winning cases is being abundantly overprepared. As an attorney, Jacy gears up for war on everything. The litigator never walks into a courtroom without more research, more evidence, and more potential angles than warranted. This over-preparation allows him to think on his feet, building confidence—and the court’s regard—through each winning application, writ, submission, and hearing. Rather than being exhausted by sheer volume, the youthful lawyer becomes even more invigorated. After all, he lives to argue—and win.

Jacy got his start in 2000, working as a legal assistant for Frederick R.M. Smith, QC, a legendary attorney in the Bahamas. Mr. Smith had been intrigued by a brand of intelligence that has since served Jacy well in the courtroom. Even then, a talent analysis showed Jacy’s strengths as a future litigator.

Environmental Laws and Regulations Affecting US Offshore Wind

In a new edition of Pratt’s Energy Law Report, White & Case global environment & climate change partner Seth Kerschner and associate Brittany Curcuru provide an overview of the federal environmental regulations that proponents of offshore wind may have to navigate to get projects approved, built, launched—and eventually, decommissioned.

The team said, “The Biden administration has signaled strong support for renewables, including wind. The Interior, Energy and Commerce departments announced a shared goal to deploy at least 30 gigawatts (GWs) of offshore wind in the United States by 2030. As part of that resolution, BOEM intends to hold new lease sales and finalize the review of at least 16 Construction and Operations Plans for wind development, which could bring more than 19 GWs of wind capacity online by 2025.”
