Legal Transactions in Turks and Caicos
Performing legal transactions in the Turks and Caicos can be daunting and complex, particularly if you are unfamiliar with the legal sector in the islands and the dynamics of the Turks and Caicos. At L'Heureux & Co, relationship management is at the heart of what they do. This allows them to develop personal, long-lasting relationships with their clients and tailor their services to meet the unique needs of each client. This also removes the layer of complexity that can surround legal transactions in the islands and has created a professional network both locally and abroad that can be leveraged to the benefit of the firm’s clients.

This includes everything from preparation of management contracts, legal contracts, and branded hotel agreements to hotel leases, license agreements and other ancillary agreements associated with hotel developments.
The firm is also experienced in providing advisory services related to villa developments that specifically focus on short-term rentals and mixed-use development.
