Jurisdiction: Bermuda

There’s a reason that 75% of Fortune 100 companies have operations in Bermuda. The island offers all the benefits of an offshore jurisdiction – including business-friendly legislation and speed to market – along with an internationally recognised standing as a reputable financial centre.  These attributes make Bermuda an extremely attractive incorporation base for international businesses and high net worth individuals.

Known as the ‘world’s risk capital’, Bermuda is renowned as one of the world’s largest insurance, reinsurance and ILS domiciles. It is a major centre for investment funds, especially alternative funds, and one of the most active jurisdictions for cross-border capital markets transactions, including IPOs and asset-backed securitisations, especially in the aviation and shipping sectors. The island is also leading the way in the blockchain and ICO space, with a regulatory framework already in place.


  • Business-friendly government
  • Sensible and effective regulatory environment allows operational flexibility
  • Stable, tax-neutral platform
  • Deep pool of intellectual capital and business support services
  • Sound legal and judicial systems based on English common law with final appeal to the Privy Council of the United Kingdom
  • Well respected by the international community, having met or exceeded the standards of the G20, OECD and FATCA

When choosing a legal service provider in Bermuda, you are looking for a proven track record, authoritative advice on the jurisdiction’s laws and a firm that understands the markets in which you do business. Founded in 1928, Conyers has the distinction of being the first offshore law firm in Bermuda, with a highly respected history. Over the years we have consistently remained at the forefront of developments in our market, working closely with the government on the drafting of many key pieces of commercial and trust legislation. We can offer you unrivalled experience and expertise as the premier international firm on the island.


Conyers has long been the leading corporate practice in Bermuda. Our seasoned team of lawyers advise on insurance/reinsurance, capital markets, M&A, 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 majority of Bermuda’s insurance and reinsurance companies. Today, we advise two-thirds of the world’s largest commercial insurers on 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. With particular strength in IPOs and securitization matters, we 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 has worked on the industry’s largest securitisations, debt financings and private placements. The Bermuda Shipping and Maritime Authority is a highly regarded part of the offshore shipping industry. Conyers has built a leading practice in ship finance and shipping capital markets, advising ship owners and lenders on financing, IPOs and bond issuances in the region, having developed opportunities in Norway and other markets.


Conyers’ Bermuda office has a prominent litigation and restructuring practice with an excellent reputation in the fields of arbitration and contentious trust litigation. Our litigators have appeared in many leading decisions before the courts as well as on behalf of clients in global, multi-billion dollar disputes.


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.
