Announcements Maples Group Welcomes British Virgin Islands Commercial Court Appointments

10 May 2019

Maples Group welcomes the recent appointments of both Mr. Gerhard H. A. Wallbank and Mr. Adrian Jack as High Court Judges of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court Commercial Division in the British Virgin Islands.

 

Justice Wallbank previously held a number of temporary appointments as a Justice of the BVI Commercial Court.  Maples Group is pleased with his return to the territory for a long-term appointment of a period of three years with effect from 14 October 2019.

 

Welcoming the appointments, Dispute Resolution & Insolvency partners, Adrian Francis and Alex Hall Taylor, said:

 

"The workload of the BVI Commercial Court is considerable, consisting of fast-moving high quality international litigation, insolvency and restructuring cases.  With these appointments, the territory is further strengthening the able bench and the reputation of the Commercial Court as an effective international tribunal.  in particular, we welcome the consistency and stability brought by the return to longer-term appointments reflected in the three year appointment of Justice Wallbank."

 

The BVI Commercial Court can hear cases from any of the nine member jurisdictions of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court and specialises in cross-border and high value commercial, company, trusts, asset tracing and insolvency law matters.

 

The Maples Group's British Virgin Islands office provides full service dispute resolution, insolvency, restructuring and commercial advice on matters of British Virgin Islands law to financial, institutional, business and private clients both locally and internationally, as well as specialised regulatory and compliance and entity formation and management services.
