Who We Are

Nunes, Scholefield, DeLeon & Co. is the successor partnership to Judah, Desnoes, Lake, Nunes, Scholefield & Co. The firm’s predecessors can be traced from as far back as 1929 making it one of the oldest law firms in Jamaica if not the Caribbean. We offer a comprehensive range of quality legal services. Our firm is equipped with the latest information technology and client care practices and we are constantly striving to improve.

The firm and its attorneys-at-law have been recognized by the IFLR 1000, Chambers & Partners and the World Trademark Review as leaders in our fields of specialization. We have decades of linkages within significant local organizations such as the American Chamber of Commerce in Jamaica, the Jamaica Chamber of Commerce and the Private Sector Organization of Jamaica. Attorneys-at-law sit on various sub-committees of these local organizations to keep abreast of industry concerns and to provide advocacy for legal reform.

Glimpses of the Past

In 1929, two young lawyers, Douglas Joseph Judah, and Charles Harry Randall joined forces to establish the firm, Judah & Randall. This was the beginning of a partnership that was to develop into one of Jamaica’s outstanding law firms. They were later joined by another young lawyer, Noel N. Nethersole, who was admitted to practice in 1931. He joined as a partner, and the firm came to be known as Judah, Randall & Nethersole, carrying on practice at 11, Duke Street in Kingston.
