Conyers Dill & Pearman’s British Virgin Islands office was formed in 1996. We have become a leader in the provision of offshore legal services in the BVI and are internationally recognised as Tier 1. We have achieved this position through our breadth and depth of expertise and by building long-standing relationships, together with our efforts in facilitating legal and regulatory changes. Our enviable client base spans the globe to include large corporations, onshore firms, private equity and hedge funds, trust companies and high net worth individuals.
Conyers is the market leader for BVI mergers and acquisitions work and offshore IPOs on all major exchanges. Our lawyers also advise on significant finance, banking and investment fund matters. The office provides specialist advice to clients on the day-to-day operations of their fund operations from initial fund formation and structuring to restructuring and winding up of funds.
The litigation and insolvency & restructuring practice is the most experienced and comprehensive of any offshore firm in the BVI. We are frequently involved in leading international litigation work in the BVI and have acted on many of the reported cases before both the Commercial Court and Eastern Caribbean Court of Appeal. Conyers has also been involved with cases concerning the recognition of arbitral awards and the use of such awards to form the basis of a petition to appoint liquidators over a BVI company.
The 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, trustee powers and duties, cross-border succession, and testate and intestate issues relating to BVI situated assets.
