Full Description

The British Virgin Islands office advises on all aspects of BVI corporate law, commercial litigation and trust & private client matters. Our lawyers guide clients from pre-incorporation planning stages throughout the life of a company to its ultimate liquidation, if necessary.

Through links with our international offices we provide a seamless global service – something of increasing importance to clients conducting multi-jurisdictional transactions.

A significant portion of Conyers Dill & Pearman's operations is located in the British Virgin Islands (BVI), a small group of islands at the north-east end of the Leeward Islands in the Caribbean. The BVI is a British Overseas Territory. It is also a jurisdiction which has successfully established a thriving international business industry. The legal system is based on English common law and the islands have developed an expertise in personal holding companies which entirely belies the size of the jurisdiction.

The financial services commission regulates the financial industry in the BVI. The commission provides guidance to the financial services industry, in addition to administering and enforcing the law. As a result, the BVI has a thriving and sophisticated financial industry, including an extensive mutual fund and insurance industry.

The BVI office provides specialist advice on:

Company & commercial law
Public offerings of securities of BVI companies listed on various stock exchanges
Mergers and acquisitions
Mutual funds
Securitizations and structured finance transactions
Insurance and reinsurance
Banking and finance
Shipping and aircraft
Litigation and insolvency
Trust & Private Client
