Like the Technology sector that they are frequently used by, British Virgin Islands companies provide innovative and 21st century solutions in response to rapidly evolving requirements.

Overview

The British Virgin Islands are an ideal home for everything from start-ups to the multi-national tech giants whose CEOs already have their own tropical island.

Harneys has a keen understanding of the major tech sectors, representing a variety of technology companies and financial institutions worldwide. Our lawyers have been involved in some of the largest and most significant transactions in the tech space, including complex, multi-jurisdictional deals.

We represented Market Tech Holdings Limited, a holding company that combines iconic real estate assets in London’s Camden Town with an e-commerce business, on the BVI law aspects of its secured debt facilities and connected group reorganization and successful £750million AIM IPO (the largest of that year).

Other BVI Technology sector experience includes:
  • Acting as BVI advisor to the provider of the world’s largest derivatives marketplace and central counterparty clearing system.
  • Advising the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development on its financing to Dataline LLC, a subsidiary of INLINE Technologies Group; one of the largest Russian high end IT services providers.
  • Acting as BVI counsel on the debt financing of a Californian based leading global provider of communications and data connectivity technology for next-generation mobile and fixed-line access networks.
  • Advising the financial institutions providing mezzanine debt and seed funding to a cloud and browser based enterprise resource planning (ERP) software developer/ provider.
  • Acting as BVI counsel to the facility agent, HSBC Bank plc, in relation to the syndicated credit facilities provided to the NASDAQ listed TTM Technologies Group; a major global printed circuit board manufacturer.
