|Owen practises extensively in the areas of corporate and commercial, commercial property development and tourism, and inward investment, and is a regular contributor to international publications on TCI corporate, development and financial law matters.
TCI’s recent preeminence as the Caribbean centre of luxury hospitality has seen Owen advise regularly on major foreign investments in TCI, on agreements between those foreign investors and the TCI Government, and on related financing, joint venture and corporate structuring issues, including on whole-island and major resort projects.
From time to time, Owen has sat on private sector committees consulting with the TCI Government on possible legislative changes and statutory initiatives, primarily in the financial and real estate areas. In the recent past, these have included input on a proposed wholesale modernisation of the Companies Ordinance, on trusts law issues, and on the enactment of legislation authorising fractional real estate regimes in TCI.
