Securities Law

We have extensive experience advising public and private companies on all aspects of securities law compliance. We also represent investment advisors in Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) registration and other matters.

US Virgin Islands-based companies and US mainland companies with operations in the islands are subject to a blend of US Virgin Islands and US federal securities laws. These laws apply to both public and private corporations. However, US Virgin Islands law offers registration exceptions and other benefits for companies that invest locally in the islands.

With experience as in-house counsel for a large investment advisory firm and as former chief counsel to the US Virgin Islands Bureau of Internal Revenue, firm founder Marjorie Roberts offers comprehensive guidance on complex securities law matters and on the tax implications of various corporate and investment structures.
