BVI Law In Europe And Asia

BVI Law in Europe and Asia

Contact us

Popular with high-net-worth individuals and investors from across industry sectors, BVI structures are used throughout the world. This is why we offer BVI qualified lawyers in all time zones.  

In addition to our team based in the Caribbean, we have BVI qualified lawyers in London, the Channel Islands, the Middle East and Hong Kong, many of whom have significant on-the-ground experience practising in the BVI. 

Our specialist teams in Europe and Asia can provide BVI legal advice directly from Europe and Asia to leading global financial institutions and international law firms, investment managers and corporate entities, boutique advisers and other intermediaries, as well as high net worth individuals – providing a true 24-hour service to clients across the globe. 

Banking and Finance

Ogier's Banking and Finance team provides advice relating to deals with commercial lending facilities, acting for both lenders and borrowers, together with the associated share and asset security packages, structured financing (including the establishment of MTN programmes) and asset finance. We have a strong focus on fund and real estate financings and are supported by global dispute resolution and restructuring and insolvency teams. 


Our Corporate team provides advice on capital markets (debt and equity), pre-IPO investments, IPOs (including SPACs), PIPEs and secondary offerings, downstream private equity acquisitions and disposals, take-privates, joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions, schemes and plans of arrangement, liquidation services and general corporate advisory and opinion work. We work across all asset classes with a particular focus on real estate, natural resources, telecommunications, technology and web3. 

Dispute Resolution

Our Dispute Resolution team advises on the technical, strategic and procedural aspects across a spectrum of disputes. Frequently multi-jurisdictional in nature, this includes advice in relation to trusts, companies, shareholder issues, distressed funds, director’s duties, investment performance, banking and other financial transactions, as well as fraud and asset tracing claims, and all aspects of the regulatory framework within which our clients must operate. 

Investment Funds

Our Investment Funds team advises on the formation, licensing and ongoing advisory services to hedge funds, real estate funds, venture capital funds and private equity funds, including advising such funds on co-investment vehicles and downstream investments.  We also advise investment managers choosing to domicile their investment management entity in the BVI, fund administrators providing services to both BVI and non-BVI funds and institutional investors in such funds. We also advise in relation to sustainable investment and impact funds.

Private Wealth

We act for trustee companies, private individuals, family offices, commercial organisations, onshore law firms and charities and other philanthropic organisations, advising on structuring and restructuring using trusts, private trust companies and foundations. 


Our regulatory team provides BVI regulatory advice in relation to the carrying on of all forms of financial services activities/ businesses in the BVI, both for clients looking to use BVI structures to provide "investment business" services and also by clients seeking to market financial products into the BVI.  We also advise in relation to compliance with each of the BVI's anti-money laundering regulations, economic substance regime and FATCA/CRS AEOI requirements. 

Technology and Web3

At Ogier, we have experts across our jurisdictions covering the fintech ecosystem advising on decentralised autonomous organisations (DAOs), decentralised finance (DeFi) and the Web3 landscape. We have established ourselves as the market leader in the Cayman Islands and British Virgin Islands (BVI) for creating and implementing a variety of innovative and regulatory compliant structures and have experts across our jurisdictions who are fully engaged with their local regulators to help steer the future regulatory landscape.
