Arbitration, mediation & alternative dispute resolution

Our lawyers frequently deal with arbitration clauses contained within commercial contracts.  We advise on the meaning and effect of arbitration clauses, the enforcement of arbitration awards, and the conduct of arbitrations. 

Because most arbitrations arising in the Cayman Islands and British Virgin Islands financial services industries involve international parties and sensitive legal and commercial issues, the majority of arbitrations take place in London, New York, Dubai or Asia and we are familiar with the international arbitration conventions and rules.  We also provide expert testimony on matters of Cayman Islands and British Virgin Islands laws for use in foreign arbitrations.

Where appropriate, we recommend and participate in mediation and other forms of alternative dispute resolution such as settlement meetings and bidding mechanisms. 

As most mediations and arbitration proceedings are confidential, we generally do not refer to details of recent actions in which we have been involved, although at any time we are usually engaged in one or more arbitrations under the LCIA or AAA rules, as well as local arbitrations in respect of construction, insurance or rental reviews.
