Mark McDonald Managing Director British Virgin Islands +1 284 494 6041

I lead Grant Thornton’s office in the British Virgin Islands, where I have been based for over 10 years.  I have over 17 years’ experience of insolvency, specialising in contentious cross border insolvency often involving fraud investigation, asset tracing and litigation across a number of jurisdictions.

I am frequently appointed by the Courts in the BVI and the wider Eastern Caribbean to act as Liquidator or Receiver of companies with assets and other interests in Russia, the Commonwealth of Independent States, Africa, Asia, Latin America and Europe.

Recent cases include the liquidation of Allen Standford’s US$7 billion Ponzi scheme, Stanford International Bank Limited and acting as liquidator and receiver of numerous BVI companies in connection with billions of dollars lost by an Icelandic Bank. 

I have been recognised as an Offshore ‘Thought Leader’ by Who’s Who Legal Asset Recovery, for 2017 – 2019 inclusive.
