Jurisdiction: British Virgin Islands

With more than 460,000 companies, the British Virgin Islands is the world’s most popular domicile for offshore incorporation and is also an increasingly attractive jurisdiction for investment funds (especially new managers and start-up funds), and banking and finance transactions. Respected and transparent, the BVI blends a modern regulatory framework with innovative corporate legislation and is recognised globally as a cost-effective route for the secure deployment of international capital.

The ability to flexibly structure complex cross-border corporate activities – involving investors from all parts of the world – makes the BVI highly effective for joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions, IPOs and as holding companies for high value assets. Innovative fund vehicles for new managers and start-ups have been highly popular, especially when compliance costs present a barrier to entry elsewhere. BVI trust and wealth management structures are proving attractive for high net worth individuals, especially from Asia, to ensure effective and flexible management of corporate and family affairs.

WHY BVI?

  • Flexible Companies Act based on Delaware statute
  • Legal system based on English common law
  • Tax neutral and cost effective
  • Politically stable
  • Meets international compliance standards and is ‘white-listed’ by OECD

CONYERS IN THE BVI

As the leading international law firm in the BVI, Conyers can offer you the expertise of a dedicated group of over 50 BVI qualified lawyers with a breadth of experience across the markets and industry sectors in which you do business. You can also benefit from the strongest litigation team in the jurisdiction and the efficiencies provided by Conyers Client Services, our affiliated corporate and trust services company. Whether you are looking to redomicile existing entities, embark on a new venture, prepare for an IPO, launch a new fund, or would like to talk about the possibilities for growth, we would be delighted to hear from you.

CORPORATE

Conyers BVI corporate practice is the market leader, particularly in offshore mergers and acquisitions and IPOs, having advised on both the largest M&A transaction and the largest IPO in the jurisdiction to date.  We regularly advise on finance matters involving either BVI borrowers or guarantors, providing timely and cost effective assistance to allow parties to close transactions as anticipated. We advise the largest BVI hedge funds as well as start-up managers, delivering the relevant advice for the nature of the fund. We were instrumental in the establishment of the regulations permitting incubator funds and approved friends and family funds.

LITIGATION & RESTRUCTURING

Our litigation team is the most experienced of any firm in the BVI. We are frequently involved in leading international litigation work and have acted on many of the reported cases both before the Commercial Court and the Eastern Caribbean Court of Appeal. Conyers’ exemplary reputation in the jurisdiction has led to a distinguished track record of advising on high profile disputes. These have included acting in the largest asset tracing litigation from and by Commonwealth of Independent States, through to the largest and most complex receiverships involving the People’s Republic of China.

PRIVATE CLIENT & TRUST

Our BVI private client and trust practice specialises in all aspects of contentious and non-contentious work, including establishment of trust structures for tax and estate planning purposes, restructuring trusts with or without court assistance, and advising on trustee powers and duties, cross-border succession, and testate and intestate issues for BVI situated assets.

CONYERS CLIENT SERVICES

Conyers Dill & Pearman is affiliated with a global network of licensed trust companies under the umbrella of Conyers Client Services, which provides corporate administration services and specialised company management services, as well as a broad range of trust administration services.
