Leading Law Firm


5/19/2022


The founder of our law firm, Glenn D. Godfrey, served as the Attorney General with the Belizean government in 1993, having served as a Parliamentary Member in the National Assembly in the years prior. He has also been Senior Counsel in the Supreme Court of Belize (1990). The firm has more than 40 years experience working with companies both domestic and international who are doing business in and/or from Belize.  A law firm should offer more than simply creating your corporate structure. There are many ongoing and recurring administrative and financial services that are best managed by a legal professional in Belize, such as fiscal planning with knowledge of multiple jurisdictions, and legal compliance in an ever-changing environment.  


Our greatest strength is our people: their knowledge of local and international law, along with their passion to stay abreast of the ever changing environment of legal matters and precedents.


As attorneys in Belize, we can act as an agent for you in registering your vessel with The International Merchant Marine Registry of Belize (IMMARBE), which has the advantage of being a reliable and cost effective undertaking. We also offer our services as advisers and agents on practical matters related to shipping such as financing, liability, liens and so on.  In Belize, divorce in legal terms comes in two varieties: consent or contested. A consent divorce is a matter in which both parties agree, at least at the beginning of the process, that they will each sign the necessary documents once prepared. Of course, that decision to sign can change during the process of negotiations, but the divorce will remaing a "consent" procedure. A contested divorce, on the other hand, is one in which one party does not agree to the separation of assets and dissolution of the marriage.
