The Callender Family

A legacy in law

In The Bahamas, the name Callender is well-known and highly regarded in the Legal Profession, with four generations of practicing attorneys. This distinguished legacy commenced with the late Walter Ernest Savory Callender, K.C. of British Guyana, when he established his Law Firm in Nassau, Bahamas in 1901. In 1936, he was joined by his son Wren Ernest Alexander Callender, Q.C.

 

 

After the passing of W.E.S. Callender in 1949, Ernest  continued the family’s Legal Practice. Colin Ernest Callender, a third generation Callender to be called to The Bahamas Bar, began his legal career with his father, Ernest in 1962 and they eventually renamed the Firm Callender & Callender. In 1965, a second office was established in Freeport, Grand Bahama and a few years later in 1969, Bradley Walter Callender joined his father and brother at the Nassau branch. Callender & Callender underwent a series of mergers throughout the years, but after the latest  in 1985, adopted the name Callenders & Co. Sean Bradley Callender joined his father , Bradley and uncle, Colin in the firm in 1994 and Jason Colin Callender, Colin’s son joined a year thereafter.  Their family heritage in law is one the Callenders are proud of.

 

With the great expansion of  Callenders & Co. for many years, Bradley W. Callender and Sean B. Callender sought to re-establish themselves as a Family Firm and  in 2002, they founded the Law Firm of Sean B. Callender & Co.
