[Breakfast Seminar] Offshore vehicles – fallacies and truths
18 August 2021 08:45 - 10:00
The date has been set to August 18.
Offshore companies continue to be fundamental to banks, other financial institutions, private equity firms, venture capital investors and private businesses, to name a few, in structuring corporate, investment and finance transactions. They mitigate risk, reduce multiple taxation, facilitate asset protection and investment diversification and safeguard confidentiality. In recent times, though, scandals involving politicians, multinationals, celebrities and other high-net-worth individuals exposed through leaks such as the Panama Papers and the Paradise Papers have once again ignited the debate regarding the uses of offshore vehicles.
In this seminar, Peter Vas, a partner at Loeb Smith Attorneys focusing on matters of British Virgin Islands and Cayman Islands law, will address some of these scandals and shed light on the manner in which offshore vehicles are routinely and legitimately used in commercial transactions. Peter was recently recognised as a leading offshore lawyer in the Asian Legal Business Offshore Client Choice List 2021 and has been in the legal industry for almost a decade. He provides British Virgin Islands and Cayman Islands law advice to banks, other financial institutions, sponsors, insurance companies, other corporate entities and private clients to deal with day-to-day legal issues and complex, strategic matters.
