21/12/2017 News Team

Offshore law firm Conyers Dill & Pearman has appointed Mark Forte as head of its British Virgin Islands office. He succeeds Robert Briant, who has led Conyers' BVI office since April 1999.

Mr Forte, who is a partner at the firm, joined Conyers in 2004 to launch and lead its BVI litigation & restructuring practice. He has grown the team to include seven experienced solicitors and barristers, all based in the BVI. 

He has over 20 years of litigation experience and has frequently appeared as an advocate in some of the jurisdiction’s leading cases.

“I feel privileged to take on this role at such a pivotal time in the BVI. Not only to lead an exemplary team of practitioners and colleagues, but to continue to support the jurisdiction as a whole, which continues to re-build following the devastation caused by Hurricane Irma”, said Mr Forte.

“I would like to thank Robert for his efforts in leading and developing our BVI office from a two lawyer operation into a leading Tier 1 firm in the jurisdiction. Mark’s history of leadership as head of the BVI litigation & restructuring practice has made a positive impact and I look forward to seeing him continue to grow and strengthen the office under his new mandate”, added Christian Luthi, director and chairman of Conyers Dill & Pearman.
