Bermuda is one of the world’s premier offshore jurisdictions. Conyers Dill & Pearman was the first offshore law firm to establish a practice in the region, opening our doors in 1928.
For investment funds, Bermuda has been the global Alternative Fund Centre since 1986. With modernised legislation, improved options are available for investment fund managers, resulting in a simplified process and speed to market that is unprecedented in the offshore world.
Our Bermuda practice is globally recognised for first-class service and high-quality work involving complex multi-jurisdictional transactions and is composed of 60 lawyers locally and abroad. Through our network of global offices in London, Dubai, Hong Kong and Singapore, clients receive coordinated and timely advice, providing a high-level of efficient and effective service.
Our seasoned team of lawyers advise on insurance/reinsurance, capital markets, mergers & acquisitions, securitization, shipping and aircraft financing, investment funds and corporate restructuring transactions.
Bermuda is among the largest insurance and reinsurance domiciles globally. For over 60 years, our insurance lawyers have acted for the large majority of Bermuda’s insurance and reinsurance companies. Today, we advise two-thirds of the world’s largest commercial insurers. We offer instruction on high-profile insurance matters, including alternative risk transfer, catastrophe bonds and insurance-linked securities, as well as transformation transactions using special purpose vehicles.
Our professionals advise more than half of the Bermuda companies listed on the NYSE and Nasdaq. Through our particular strengths in IPOs, as well as the resurgence in securitization matters, we continue to lead the way on some of the region’s most highlighted transactions.
Since its establishment in 1931, Bermuda’s Register of Aircraft has been used by multi-national companies and high net worth individuals from around the world. Our aviation team in Bermuda has worked on the industry’s largest securitisations, debt financings and private placements. The Bermuda Department of Maritime Administration, founded in 1789, sits at the forefront of the offshore shipping industry. Conyers has built a leading practice in ship finance and shipping capital markets, advising shipowners and lenders on financing, IPOs and bond issuances in the region, having developed opportunities in Norway and other markets.
Conyers Dill & Pearman have appeared in many leading decisions before the courts as well as on behalf of clients in global, multi-billion dollar disputes, having established a prominent litigation and insolvency and restructuring practice. Our Bermuda office is at the forefront of arbitration and contentious trust litigation.
With renowned private client and trust lawyers, we specialise in both contentious and non-contentious work. Focusing on the creation and reorganisation of trusts and corporate structures, we work to preserve client capital and to establish succession planning of ownership structures for family businesses.
Conyers Client Services provides corporate administration, trust and specialised company management services to our Bermuda clients.
