O'Neal Webster's Overview

The roots of O'Neal Webster date back to 1989. The firm was founded by Colin O'Neal, Paul Webster, and Barbara O'Neal, who were all associates in law firms in the British Virgin Islands. Their commitment to delivering a high level of legal service along with a commitment to clients and the community led them to form the partnership of O'Neal Webster O'Neal. The firm, now doing business as O'Neal Webster, is one of the leading commercial law firms in the BVI, one of the world's most important offshore financial services centers.

From their beginnings as a general local practice, O'Neal Webster has grown with the British Virgin Islands and has become established as a firm recognized for its expertise in BVI corporate and commercial law as well as litigation, where our attorneys have distinguished themselves at every level of the judicial system in the BVI, the Caribbean, and the Privy Council in London.

O'Neal Webster also provides BVI trust, companies, and corporate administration services through our affiliated company, Coverdale Trust Services Ltd., which is fully licensed as a trust company in the BVI.
