Harneys has the fastest growing litigation and insolvency practice in the Cayman Islands.  We are regularly instructed in some of the most high profile and complex matters before the Cayman Islands courts.

Overview

Our team has worked on many of the largest and most complex liquidations, shareholder disputes, insolvency proceedings, corporate restructurings and contentious trusts disputes in the Cayman Islands.

We work closely with our funds department to advise managers, administrators, liquidators, prime brokers, investors and onshore counsel of investment funds facing distressed situations. Our lawyers have appeared in nearly all the major hedge fund litigation cases to emerge in the Cayman Islands following market events of the past few years.

Harneys dominates the market for Cayman-based litigation with an Asian element. Our dual offerings in Hong Kong and Cayman provide our Asian clients with an unrivalled combination of immediate real-time litigation and insolvency advice in their own region, with an exceptional and experienced team on the ground in Cayman.
