Our Insolvency & Restructuring services in Cayman

Our Insolvency and Restructuring practice draws together banking, corporate, insolvency, investment funds, litigation, regulatory and restructuring expertise. We deploy carefully integrated, multi-disciplinary teams to work closely with leading professionals in the US, the UK and elsewhere.

Mourant Ozannes plays a leading role in the largest and most high profile insolvency-related cases in the Cayman Islands, usually cross-border in practice requiring rapid and efficient co-ordinated advice. We advise on all aspects of complex corporate restructurings, providing pragmatic and workable solutions for our clients.

Our clients include major financial institutions, trust companies, UK/US law and accountancy practices, regulatory and public bodies as well as high net worth individuals.

We have recently acted on a number of significant Cayman liquidations, including Peloton, SPhinX, Trade and Commerce Bank, Bear Stearns and Parmalat and we are continuing to receive instructions in important cases that are defining the law of the Cayman Islands such as the Lancelot funds case.
