Conyers appoints new BVI head


Conyers Dill & Pearman has appointed Mark Forte as head of the law firm’s British Virgin Islands (BVI) office.

Currently a partner at the international firm, Forte succeeds Robert Briant, who has led the BVI office since April 1999.

Forte, who joined Conyers in 2004, has over 20 years of litigation experience and has regularly appeared as an advocate in some of the jurisdiction’s leading cases.

Commenting on his appointment, Forte said: “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 rebuild following the devastation caused by Hurricane Irma.”

Christian Luthi, Conyers director and chairman, said: “I would like to thank Robert Briant for his efforts in leading and developing our BVI office from a two-lawyer operation into a leading tier 1 firm in the jurisdiction.”

He added: “Mark Forte’s history of leadership as head of the BVI litigation and 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.”
