As of 1 October 2020, the BVI partnership known as Appleby, BVI has converted to a company limited by shares and will now be known as Appleby (BVI) Limited. This has no impact on the way we do business. This is just about how we conduct our affairs and manage risk as a group.
We very much look forward to continuing to serve our valued clients. If you do have any queries about this change, please direct them to Jeffrey Kirk or your usual Appleby contact.
our global team
At Appleby, our global presence allows us to provide timely and comprehensive legal advice at the time most critical to our clients. This includes providing British Virgin Islands (BVI) law advice to clients in the Asian, North and South American, African, Caribbean and European timezones.
A number of our BVI qualified lawyers have experience working in onshore financial centres or on the ground in the BVI, ensuring that they have both commercial expertise and an awareness of the nuances affecting the practice of BVI law. Our global team approach ensures that all team members benefit from this collective shared experience, when dealing with the spectrum of cross-border transactions and high-profile matters that we advise upon.
We work regularly alongside onshore law firms based in all the major financial centres including London, New York, Miami, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Silicon Valley, Dublin, Dubai, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Moscow, Switzerland and Singapore. Given the popularity of the BVI as an offshore jurisdiction our relationships with onshore counsel extend beyond these financial centres and include the regional centres where commercial expertise has developed.
We advise a wide variety of local and international organisations including a large number of FTSE 100 and Fortune 500 companies on every aspect of BVI corporate and commercial law, with particular expertise and focus on mergers and acquisitions, corporate restructurings, joint ventures and capital markets.
We offer advice on:

In addition to corporate advice, our global network means we can also offer BVI Dispute Resolution advice to clients in the Asian, North and South American, African, Caribbean and European timezones.
