BVI Office - Hurricanes Irma and Maria Update

21 September2017


Our BVI team is operational and business continuity measures are in place for BVI clients

Following the impact of Hurricanes Irma and Maria on the British Virgin Islands, we are continuing with our efforts to support our colleagues, the BVI government and the BVI business community.

Whilst many of our colleagues were able to leave the island following Irma, we still have some members of our team who have decided to remain on the island, and we are pleased to report that all of our BVI colleagues are safe and well in the aftermath of the hurricanes.

Our BVI team is operational and business continuity measures are in place for BVI clients. Our BVI team of lawyers are operating out of Appleby’s global network of offices. All client enquiries and communications will now be handled via your usual BVI contacts. Contact details for the Appleby BVI team are set out below

Business Continuity in the BVI

We will continue to work alongside the BVI Government to establish and support the humanitarian relief effort required to support the people of the BVI at this time. Appleby has joined the Alliance of BVI Professional Services Businesses, representing the legal and professional services firms with operations in the BVI. As an alliance we have agreed to support the BVI Government’s charitable efforts and donate towards the central fund.
