Overview

The British Virgin Islands is a British overseas territory and one of the world's pre-eminent international financial centres. It has a reputation for its strong regulatory framework and an entrepreneurial business community.

We opened our office in Tortola in 2012 and quickly developed an international reputation as a leading law firm that is well respected in the jurisdiction.

We provide accurate, timely, and clear advice to our clients, and we are able to draw on the expertise of other partners within the firm, many of whom are leaders within their fields.

Much of our work centres around international and cross border issues, and we work closely with our clients to ensure the most efficient, and cost effective, approach is taken to address their particular needs.
