Harneys Issued Second Edition of “British Virgin Islands Commercial Law”


In the last weeks of 2012, the international offshore law firm Harney Westwood & Riegels announced the publication of the 2nd edition of practitioner’s textbook ‘British Virgin Islands Commercial Law’. Since it was first published in February 2012, it remained the first and only textbook focusing solely on British Virgin Islands law and practice, comprising Harney’s expertise as the oldest and largest law firm in this offshore jurisdiction.

The publication is an authoritative source of information and advice for lawyers and other professionals who work with corporate structures and transactions, providing a deep analytical view of BVI legal background, related to business companies, partnerships, credit and security, investment funds, insolvency, dispute resolution, taxation and trust legislation

There are some changes in the law of the British Virgin Islands that occurred since the 1st textbook was edited, including the passing of the BVI Business Companies (Amendment) Act 2012 was passed and the accompanying BVI Business Companies Regulations 2012.
