Lex Caribbean’s international business group comprises a team of lawyers dedicated to advising financial institutions, multinationals, foreign governments and high net worth individuals on a wide variety of high value transactions.

These transactions usually originate in one country and feature investment in Barbados or through Barbados into another country. We regularly work on deals originating from or designed to invest into (as applicable) one or more countries in the Far East, the Middle East, Africa, the Caribbean and Latin America, as well as Australia and Canada.

We have rich experience working with international clients in most types of finance, mergers and acquisitions, corporate/commercial, securities law and regulation, collective investment, insurance and reinsurance, immigration and trusts. We practice across many industry sectors including renewable and non renewable energy, mining, oil and gas, telecommunications and IT, food manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, hospitality and property development.

In addition to our expertise we offer clients a team of lawyers that features cultural affinity within our Caribbean territories, combined with practice experience in multiple jurisdictions. We collaborate effectively with private and public sector organisations in our locales and also enjoy and nurture excellent working relationships with numerous legal and other professional services firms around the world. We are responsive, constructive, solution-driven lawyers; partnering with our clients, motivated by their priorities and committed to their success.

Entrepreneurial Business Unit

Through our EBU, Lex specializes in advising entrepreneurs on the myriad of legal and regulatory issues arising, within the context of the specific circumstances and objectives of the relevant venture, so as to facilitate proper planning and determination of priorities.

We recognize that entrepreneurs come in all shapes, sizes and fields of endeavour. Therefore, we do not determine eligibility for the EBU on the basis of a simple means test or solely by consideration of the nature of the venture or type of client. Instead, each potential client is assessed on a case by case basis, taking into consideration all relevant factors in order to properly exercise the purely discretionary act of accepting anyone as an EBU client.
