Mark Forté brings Litigation Strength to the British Virgin Islands

Conyers Dill & Pearman (CD&P), the international offshore law firm, is pleased to announce the appointment of Mark Forté in the firms’ British Virgin Islands office.

Mark will assume the role of Head of Litigation for Conyers Dill & Pearman in the British Virgin Islands and Anguilla. Until June 2004, Mark was practising commercial, banking and insurance law at the English Bar based in Manchester.

Mark read law at Manchester Metropolitan University, was called to the English Bar in 1989 and to the Northern Ireland Bar in 1996. He was admitted to practice in the British Virgin Islands in 2004.

Mark has considerable experience of working closely with corporate clients and in-house legal teams. He spent two years with a firm of attorneys in New York City and had integrated his practice over the last 2 years with two of the UK’s largest corporations' in house legal teams. Such has led to him advising on many aspects of dispute resolution and from which he has gained first hand and high level mediation experience.

Mark has lectured extensively on emergency relief in commercial proceedings and cross border enforcement.

Robert Briant, partner and head of the BVI office commented "It is with great pleasure that I welcome Mark Forté to the BVI office. Mark taught contract law at his alma mater from 1993 to 1997 and brings with him significant experience in commercial contract litigation. We have been offering BVI litigation advice for almost two years. However, with the arrival of Mark, we are able to expand our BVI litigation practice. We look forward to the continued growth of our BVI litigation practice and the BVI office."
