Our lawyers have a depth and range of experience in their respective areas of practice that is simply unparalleled in the BVI. They are widely recognised as experts in their fields with decades of combined experience helping clients to navigate the BVI’s legal and regulatory environment while providing solutions to the most complex of issues.

The firm was founded by Sheila George and Johann Henry who have been recognised by Legal 500 as Leading Individuals in the British Virgin Islands Real Estate and Trusts/Private Client rankings. With a team of highly skilled and experienced professionals, we represent high and ultra-high net worth individuals and corporate clients, providing tailored solutions that are fiscally, legally and commercially sound.

We focus on ensuring that we understand all issues that affect our clients and work hard to provide practical legal solutions that are sensible, delivered in a timely manner, and which protect our clients’ long-term interests. We work in partnership with our clients as their trusted advisers and aim to add value whenever we have an opportunity to do so. We are not task-driven, nor do we focus on personal wins; we are driven by outcome, as that is what is fundamental to our clients.

We have the right combination of skills, experience, values and relationships to enable us to help our clients to achieve their objectives. We bring the right talent together under one brand and in one team, and service our clients holistically in a culture of excellence where outcome is important, and people are core.

We provide a full service offering to our clients whatever their needs might be. Our services are partner-led and one or more of our partners will work closely on each of the matters that we are instructed on. We have strength in depth, and we will ensure that professionals with the appropriate skills and experience are available to work on each matter.

Delivering a first-class service to our clients is our primary goal, and we place great value on being able to consistently and effectively deliver an excellent client service.

We are united under the common core values of, excellence in everything we do, integrity without compromise, delivering the best service for our clients and adding value.
