BVI and Cayman law in Europe and Asia

Why BVI?

BVI is, by a significant margin, the largest jurisdiction for the domicile of corporate entities, with approximately 400,000 companies active and registered in the jurisdiction.

The use of BVI entities is  popular with investors  based all over the world and across all industry sectors sectors. In Asia, BVI companies are China’s second largest inward investor. Given the global usage of BVI structures, to best serve our clients' needs we have structured our business to include BVI qualified lawyers in our offices across all time zones.
