News Update

International law firm Withers is to open a new office in the British Virgin Islands (BVI) focusing on international litigation and corporate restructuring. Withers will become the only onshore law firm with litigators offshore. This will enable major litigation to be coordinated across the world’s major financial centres and the fastest growing offshore dispute resolution arenas.

The office is being launched in response to the trend for international litigation and restructuring to include an element of offshore work, in particular relating to the BVI. In 2007, over 370 commercial actions were started in the jurisdiction, many of which were connected to proceedings in London, Switzerland, Hong Kong or the CIS.

The BVI team will provide a range of cross-border services covering corporate and trust disputes; insolvency and restructuring; funds; and banking and finance.

The office will open on 1st May and will be located at Little Denmark, Main Street, Road Town, Tortola.

Client Testimonial

One of the best China lawyers based in Shenzhen! I appreciated this Shenzhen lawyer's service because they helped me achieved my goals, though it was a tough mission. They are English speaking lawyers, so there are absolutely no communication barrier you likely encounter elsewhere. What impressed me is these Shenzhen lawyer's quick response and professional service, two characteristics which I treasure most. Although the Shenzhen lawyers are based in south China, they represent clients across the country, so you can also call them China lawyer! - Johnson
