Legal market overview

Although the British Virgin Islands (BVI) has experienced a drop in company registrations, it remains one of the Caribbean’s most prosperous economies. New entrants to the islands include boutique Cayman Islands (Cayman) law firm Travers Thorp Alberga, which merged with BVI-based Orion Law, and Cayman firm Sinclairs.

Headline market news involving Caribbean firms expanding internationally include BVI-headquartered practice Harneys opening a Shanghai office in November 2015, following on from its September 2015 launch in Bermuda.

Walkers BVI underwent significant change: new arrivals included litigator Rosalind Nicholson joining from Conyers Dill & Pearman plus David Collins and BVI investment funds head Ashley Gunning relocating from the Cayman office while Ashley Davies arriving from the Hong Kong office. On the departure front, former BVI managing partner Sandie Corbett will retire in December 2016, former investment funds head Marianne Rajic joined Campbells’ new Hong Kong office and global head of insolvency and dispute resolution Jack Husbands is due to retire in mid-2017.
