Peter D. Graham founded the Firm of Graham Thompson in 1950, and played a leading role in its growth for over 50 years.  Today, he continues to serve as a valued advisor in the long-term planning and strategic development of the Firm.  

For 65 years, he has usually been the first attorney to arrive at work in the morning, a feat admired by the entire Firm.  His integrity, work ethic, commitment to excellence and focus on public service have set the tone for several generations of lawyers, and those core values are still critical for long term career success at Graham Thompson.

Mr. Graham is highly respected for his in depth knowledge of the Bahamian real estate market in both Nassau on the Family Islands.  In recent years, he has focused his expertise on high-end residential real estate transactions in Lyford Cay.

In 1997, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, appointed Mr. Graham as CMG, the Companion of the Most Distinguished Order of St. Michael and St. George.  The CMG honors individuals who render extraordinary or important non-military service.
