Litigation & Restructuring

Conyers Dill & Pearman’s Litigation practice advises on a broad range of corporate and commercial matters and with the growth of international business in the areas of insurance and reinsurance, banking and trusts, we have naturally developed specialist knowledge in these areas and the expertise and advocacy required for highly complex legal disputes. We also assist in resolving disputes through arbitration or alternative dispute resolution procedures.

Our Bermuda Litigation & Restructuring practice has a distinguished track record of advising on high profile disputes. We have acted for parties in some of the most significant international commercial disputes coming before the Bermuda Courts and arbitral tribunals and some of the most complex of international and local restructurings, liquidations and receiverships in Bermuda.

The BVI Litigation & Restructuring practice is frequently involved in leading international litigation work in the BVI, and has acted on many of the reported cases before both the Commercial Court and the Eastern Caribbean Court of Appeal. These have included acting in the largest of asset tracing litigation from and by CIS states, through to the largest and most complex of receiverships involving PRC work seen in the BVI.

Our Cayman Islands Litigation & Restructuring practice has acted in high profile disputes and insolvencies, including some of the largest insolvencies seen in the Cayman Islands. Through our demonstrated experience in many of the region’s leading cases, clients continue to turn to us for timely strategic advice in their complex cross-border matters.

The Litigation & Restructuring practice also includes the Asia Disputes & Restructuring Group (“ADRG”), which services the Far East. The ADRG features a partner-led team in each of our jurisdictional offices, advising on the laws of Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands and the Cayman Islands. This ensures clients have access to fully coordinated litigation advice and services, provided by a seamless team – a unique offering in the offshore world.
