Building on the opening of a new office in Hong Kong in January, offshore law firm Mourant Ozannes has announced that it is to significantly expand its presence in the British Virgin Islands (BVI) with the launch of a local litigation and insolvency practice.

Mourant Ozannes partner Michael Williams, a BVI qualified solicitor, will relocate to the BVI from the Channel Islands and will be joined by two new Mourant Ozannes partners, Rachel McDonald and Shaun Folpp, previously of Ogier, BVI.

Simon Lawrenson, head of Mourant Ozannes's BVI practice in Asia, said: "We are seeing strong demand for our BVI legal services, particularly from our clients in Asia. Williams, McDonald, and Folpp bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the BVI team and together we look forward to providing the exceptional client service Mourant Ozannes is known for."

Mourant Ozannes Managing Partner, Jonathan Rigby, added: "BVI is one of the world's leading offshore financial centres and we are committed to establishing a top tier practice in the Territory."

Mourant Ozannes advises on the laws of the BVI, the Cayman Islands, Guernsey and Jersey, with offices in each of these territories as well as Hong Kong and London. The BVI office will now offer corporate, international finance, investment funds, investment business regulation, insolvency and litigation services.
