Corporate & commercial disputes


Our lawyers excel in dealing with complex corporate and commercial disputes and litigation.  We act for and against investors, funds, directors, investment managers, service providers, banks and insurance companies in a wide range of contract and tort claims. 

Often our litigation strategies are based on first having identified the legal issues relevant to the dispute – such as directors' duties, the meaning and effect of Articles of Association and shareholder agreements, or other contractual provisions.

We also provide litigation advice and input in relation to drafting documents and implementing commercial strategies designed to avoid complex litigation. 

Examples of our recent cases include:

  • Acting for the claimants in a ground-breaking derivative action in the Cayman Islands Courts in respect of alleged breaches of duty and misappropriation of the rights to the Faberge Egg brand.

  • Acting for the Cayman Islands liquidators of Bancredit (Cayman) Ltd in bringing a $100m claim in the Cayman Islands Court against the company's former management.

  • Numerous claims against auditors for audit negligence related to Cayman Islands and BVI funds and other investment vehicles.

  • Acting for aggrieved investors in a Cayman Islands limited partnership structure to force the winding up of the partnership by using the "just and equitable ground" as a basis for a petition to the Court.

  • Defending a winding up petition commenced by disgruntled investors of a Cayman Islands limited partnership, and preventing the appointment of independent liquidators.
