Henry also advises on a wide range of commercial and real property matters related to BVI domestic companies, property development and financing.
Law is part of the firm’s growing Cayman-based investment funds group. He advises clients including fund managers, administrators and investors an all aspects of establishing, operating and participating in offshore fund structures. Law has extensive experience advising in respect of structured finance and more general financing transactions including acting as offshore counsel to a range of major institutional clients.
Managing partner Richard A Peters says: “Sarah, Johann and Jonathan are talented and highly knowledgeable lawyers and their addition to the partnership strengthens three of our key practice areas: our litigation, shipping and funds groups. It is notable that two of the new partners are in our Cayman Islands office which has expanded rapidly since it was established just 15 months ago.”
