Conyers Dill & Pearman

Conyers Dill & Pearman’s ‘responsive, diligent and thorough team’ has substantial experience advising on M&A, finance, banking and aviation matters. British Virgin Islands (BVI) leader Robert Briant, who oversees the corporate and finance team, acted as BVI counsel for Nordic Aviation Capital (the world’s largest lessor of turboprop aircraft) on its acquisition of Jetscape Aviation Group, which is known for regional jet leasing. Recent buy-side deal highlights include Anton Goldstein – a ‘gem’ of a lawyer who is ‘knowledgeable, practical and responsive’ – advising Danish transport and logistics group DSV on the completion of its $1.35bn acquisition of UTi Worldwide, which is one of the largest ever takeovers of a publicly listed BVI company. Counsels Audrey Robertson and Cora Miller are also recommended.

Conyers Dill & Pearman

Conyers Dill & Pearman is ‘pre-eminent for high-value litigation in the BVI’. Head of litigation and restructuring Mark Forte advised Barclays on a claim for recovery of damages from a third party, arising from dishonest actions by a former employee. Forte also assisted SC BTA Bank with an appellate case pertaining to the Ablyazov litigation, in which registration of an English judgment in the BVI was challenged on public policy grounds. Richard Evans is ‘a pivotal and leading member of the team, who is unflappable and very commercial’ – he is particularly focused on shareholder disputes (notably Asia-sourced matters) and contentious insolvencies. His recent experience includes defending a client against an unfair prejudice claim and acting for a bank in protecting its position as lender, in circumstances where a charging order and order for sale were against the borrower’s assets. Jerry Samuel and counsel Tameka Davis are key contacts.
