Stephen Briscoe manages our office in the British Virgin Islands having previously spent nearly 20 years in Hong Kong working on various restructuring and corporate advisory related assignments.
Our British Virgin Islands office provides the same suite of services as the Cayman Islands including acting as Registered Agents, independent directors, and liquidators of solvent and insolvent companies.
Stephen has worked on corporate recovery and advisory assignments since 1973, having spent 11 years with the Official Receiver in the United Kingdom before moving into private practice where he gained considerable experience in financial investigations, liquidations and trading receiverships, particularly in the manufacturing, service and leisure industries.
In Hong Kong he advised foreign investors on numerous occasions to assist in creating value from distressed investments in Sino-Foreign Equity Joint Ventures and Wholly Foreign Owned Enterprises in the PRC.
He has acted as a director of a Cayman based private equity fund appointed by the limited partners to safeguard the interests of the LPs following the breakdown of the relationship with the investment manager and to investigate allegations of misfeasance.
His experience in Asia and a deep understanding of the latest developments in cross-border issues make him well placed to offer stakeholders a rare insight into the legal, practical and cultural issues they face when dealing with distressed and other problematic situations in the Far East.
Stephen is licensed by the BVI Financial Services Commission to act as a court-appointed liquidator. He is the co-author of the Hong Kong Corporate Insolvency Manual and was one of the course directors of the Hong Kong Insolvency Diploma, established by the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants.
