Appleby is one of the leading law firms in the British Virgin Islands. Appleby has 32 BVI lawyers, with eight resident in the BVI. Appleby’s BVI law office provides both corporate and litigation services, and continues to grow to meet the considerable interest from North America, Latin America, Africa and Europe. 

The establishment of the BVI Business Companies Act was instrumental in the Territory’s success in being able to attract significant numbers of mutual fund, captive insurance and trust companies to its shores. The BVI remains committed to the OECD principles of exchange of information and transparency in tax matters, as demonstrated by the Territory’s listing on the OECD “White List”.

Lawyers in our BVI office advise clients in relation to BVI law and are able to facilitate the provision of legal advice in Bermuda, the Cayman Islands, Guernsey, Isle of Man, Jersey, Mauritius and the Seychelles.
