British Virgin Islands Commercial Law is the only publication that focuses exclusively on the British Virgin Islands.

The book provides a deep analytical view of the offshore jurisdiction’s legal landscape as it relates to companies, credit and security, mutual funds, insolvency, dispute resolution, taxation, trusts and more.

The second edition will keep you fully up-to-date on one of the world’s fastest developing jurisdictions. It incorporates the major changes that occurred in 2012 including the passing of the BVI Business Companies (Amendment) Act 2012 and the accompanying BVI Business Companies Regulations 2012.
