'A go-to firm for high-value, BVI-based litigation', Conyers' BVI office has 'a pre-eminent boutique dispute resolution practice'.

The practice also acts in substantial trust litigation representing trustees, protectors and beneficiaries. Litigation and restructuring head Mark Forte recently acted for KMG International in the enforcement of a high-value arbitration award, and Richard Evans is notably focused on shareholder disputes, particularly Asia-sourced work, and contentious insolvency matters.
