Schemes of arrangement

Schemes of arrangement and other Court supervised restructurings

We are the leading Cayman Islands firm on the restructuring of Cayman Islands companies and other entities by way of court-supervised processes, including schemes of arrangement.  We have successfully implemented restructurings of solvent structures to give effect to mergers, spin-offs and takeovers, and of distressed structures to effect rehabilitations. 

We act for the structures themselves, their investors, creditors and insolvency professionals.

Examples of our recent cases include:

  • Fu Ji Food and Catering Services Holdings Ltd – acting for this deeply distressed Hong Kong listed Cayman Islands company on its proposed rehabilitation using novel restructuring tools;
  • Gallery Media Group Ltd - acting for this deeply distressed BVI company on its successful restructuring by way of scheme of arrangement;
  • Henderson Group plc – acting for Henderson Group in its successful takeover of Gartmore Group Ltd.;
  • Subsea 7 Inc – acting for this listed Cayman islands company on its successful court-supervised merger with Acergy SA.
