Conyers was the first international firm in the British Virgin Islands, with our office established in 1996, and we have been at the heart of the jurisdiction’s development into an International Financial Centre.

Corporate, Finance and Investment Funds

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. Our finance, banking and investment fund practice is substantial and as a client you will benefit from our long-standing relationships with leading financial institutions, investment managers and private equity houses, as well as with Government and regulators. 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, restructuring and insolvency team is the most experienced 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 in the region, in addition to several landmark cases. 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 trust matters, advising companies, high net worth individuals and family offices. Our expertise includes the 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.
