With more than 10 years of expertise in the British Virgin Islands, Greg Boyd is a partner in our Corporate group in the BVI. He regularly advises clients and their onshore advisors on BVI corporate and commercial laws. He works with financial institutions, public and private businesses and high-net-worth individuals. More recently Greg has been involved with numerous FinTech initiatives for the BVI and is a member of the firm’s FinTech Group (which importantly includes dedicated regulatory experts). A primary focus of the FinTech Group’s role is the identification of risk, not only risk to the firm but more importantly risk to the BVI as a whole. Greg now routinely fields enquiries in the ICO space and has advised on a few of the more noteworthy ICOs to date.
Before moving to the BVI, Greg worked as a banking and finance lawyer with Baker & McKenzie in London. Today, he collaborates with global clients on cross-border joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions, corporate reorganisations and stock exchange listings. Greg also specialises in natural resources and emerging market (eg BRICS) transactions and also advises Multilateral Lending Agencies and Development Banks.
