Cayman Islands Practice Group
The Cayman Islands has long established itself as a major international financial centre with leadership in a number of areas.
As the world’s leading domicile for offshore investment funds, the second largest captive insurance centre, a global frontrunner in structured finance and a top international banking centre, the jurisdiction stands as the only offshore international financial centre to possess such breadth and depth in financial services.
In addition, Cayman incorporated companies are frequently used for joint ventures, stock market listings and as holding companies in complex international group structures to hold high value assets and businesses.
Cayman entities are widely used in established markets such as the United States and Europe, as well as many emerging markets – most notably the People’s Republic of China (“PRC”), Middle East, Russia and Commonwealth Independent States, Brazil and several countries in Latin America.
Critical issues often encountered by Cayman entities include: Insolvency or liquidity pressure, litigation or arbitration proceedings, enforcement of debt or security, stakeholder disputes, allegations of fraud or other financial misconduct and regulatory action.
Our Cayman Islands team has offshore and onshore multidisciplinary capability, combining the expertise and experience of restructuring and insolvency practitioners, forensic accountants, economic consultants, technology specialists and communications experts.
