About Dentons

Dentons, the largest law firm in the world, is committed to delivering dynamic and innovative legal services. The firm has a presence in more than 80 countries, with 20,000 professionals working across 200 locations, to assist clients in growing, protecting, financing, and operating their businesses. Dentons' approach, which is polycentric and purpose-driven, emphasizes inclusion, diversity, equity, and ESG, allowing the firm to challenge the status quo and remain focused on client needs.

Recently, Dentons expanded its footprint in the Caribbean by establishing offices in the British Virgin Islands and St. Lucia. As the only pan-Caribbean law firm and the firm with the most Latin American and Caribbean offices, Dentons is the first truly pan-Latin American and Caribbean law firm in the history of the legal profession.

The British Virgin Islands is a renowned international financial center due to its regulatory regime, well-developed corporate infrastructure, efficient company formation and administration processes, political and economic stability, and internationally respected commercial court. It is also recognized for its tax-neutrality and plays a crucial role in the global economy. The BVI Business Company, widely used in private wealth, investment, and joint venture structures, is based in the British Virgin Islands.

Global CEO of Dentons, Elliott Portnoy, stated that the establishment of offices in the British Virgin Islands and St. Lucia will enhance Dentons' ability to serve clients in two key Caribbean markets. He also emphasized the firm's commitment to linking clients with its top talent worldwide.

Global Chairman of Dentons, Joe Andrew, added that despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the firm is committed to executing its strategy of expanding across the Latin America and Caribbean region. With offices in 25 countries, Dentons is now present in virtually all of Latin America and the Caribbean, providing a unique advantage to clients.

Jorge Alers, Latin America and Caribbean Region CEO of Dentons, stated that the new offices in the British Virgin Islands and St. Lucia complement the firm's strategy to enhance its offshore practices in the Caribbean, as well as in other offshore financial and corporate centers, including Panama, Uruguay, Mauritius, Luxembourg, Hong Kong, and Singapore.

The British Virgin Islands office is led by partner Stuart Bruce, who has significant experience in cross-border matters related to Banking and Finance, M&A, Private Equity, Joint Ventures, Corporate and Regulatory advice. In St. Lucia, Dentons offers expertise in several areas, including Banking and Finance, Corporate, Construction, Employment and Labor, Financial Institutions, Government, Hotels and Leisure, Insurance, Litigation and Dispute Resolution, Public Law, and Real Estate.

In 2020, Dentons launched several combinations, including Dentons Bingham Greenebaum and Dentons Cohen & Grigsby, as part of its "Project Golden Spike," aimed at creating a national law firm in the United States. The firm also combined with Dentons Kensington Swan in New Zealand, Dentons Lee in South Korea, Dentons Jim©nez de Ar©chaga in Uruguay, and Dentons Rattagan Arocena (formerly Dentons Rattagan Macchiavello Arocena) in Argentina.
