About

This content is provided by Agon Litigation.

Firm Overview:
Founded in 2018 by two of the BVI’s most senior litigators, Agon Litigation is a conflict-free, boutique dispute resolution specialist firm. Its team of lawyers possesses an in-depth knowledge of the BVI's legal and regulatory framework and has considerable skill in handling complex multi-jurisdictional disputes, trust disputes and arbitration and mediation matters. Agon’s size and agility set it apart from other more traditional firms in the Territory. Since its foundation, Agon has offered quality, pragmatic advice and high levels of service, without the burden and expense of overly large teams of lawyers. Agon’s litigation experts frequently appear before the BVI Commercial Court and Court of Appeal, as well as the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council. Agon also advises its clients on proactive risk management strategies to reduce significantly the likelihood of litigation, avoiding expense and business disruption. Agon’s lawyers are adept negotiators who have a proven track record of obtaining favourable mediation and arbitration settlements. Regardless of the forum, Agon fiercely advocates for the efficient and cost-effective resolution of its clients’ disputes.
