During these uncertain and changing times, we would like to reassure you of our continued support and provide an update on the operation of the BVI Corporate Registry and our BVI office. We are pleased to advise that all aspects of the operation of the BVI Corporate Registry remain open and unaffected by COVID-19. In particular, all of the BVI's incorporation and registration procedures are already conducted online through the Registry's VIRRGIN system, thereby ensuring the risk of any spread of COVID-19 is minimised. As a result, we remain able to undertake all corporate administrative procedures and transactions efficiently on behalf of our clients.
In addition, most of our teams are now working from home or on split shifts, something we already have the flexibility to do, as our systems and processes are designed to securely support this type of working environment. This enables us to deliver high-quality work for our clients whilst prioritising the safety and well-being of our people.
Both Conyers and the BVI Corporate Registry are drawing on our experience of operating seamlessly after the impact of Hurricane Irma, when we re-opened our office with a full team of lawyers, corporate managers, administrators and support staff just weeks after a devastating storm hit the BVI.
Our dedicated team of BVI resident attorneys, corporate managers and administrators are working normal hours, whilst observing all recognised health guidelines, to ensure that our clients' interests continue to be protected and advanced in these difficult times.
Like you, we are deeply concerned about the rapidly evolving situation as individuals and businesses around the world respond to this unprecedented challenge, and are closely monitoring developments. We will keep you updated as the situation changes and for this purpose, we have created a dedicated page on our website: https://www.conyers.com/news-insights/covid-19/.
