CORPORATE

Conyers has long been the leading corporate practice in Bermuda. Our seasoned team of lawyers advise on insurance/reinsurance, capital markets, M&A, securitization, shipping and aircraft financing, investment funds and corporate restructuring transactions.

  • INSURANCE / REINSURANCE

Bermuda is among the largest insurance and reinsurance domiciles globally. For over 60 years, our insurance lawyers have acted for the majority of Bermuda’s insurance and reinsurance companies. Today, we advise two-thirds of the world’s largest commercial insurers on matters including alternative risk transfer, catastrophe bonds and insurance-linked securities, as well as transformation transactions using special purpose vehicles.

  • CAPITAL MARKETS

    Our professionals advise more than half of the Bermuda companies listed on the NYSE and Nasdaq. With particular strength in IPOs and securitization matters, we lead the way on some of the region’s most highlighted transactions.

  • SHIPPING & AVIATION

Since its establishment in 1931, Bermuda’s Register of Aircraft has been used by multi-national companies and high net worth individuals from around the world. Our aviation team has worked on the industry’s largest securitisations, debt financings and private placements. The Bermuda Shipping and Maritime Authority is a highly regarded part of the offshore shipping industry. Conyers has built a leading practice in ship finance and shipping capital markets, advising ship owners and lenders on financing, IPOs and bond issuances in the region, having developed opportunities in Norway and other markets.

LITIGATION & RESTRUCTURING

Conyers’ Bermuda office has a prominent litigation and restructuring practice with an excellent reputation in the fields of arbitration and contentious trust litigation. Our litigators have appeared in many leading decisions before the courts as well as on behalf of clients in global, multi-billion dollar disputes.

PRIVATE CLIENT & TRUST

With renowned private client and trust lawyers, we specialise in both contentious and non-contentious work. Focusing on the creation and reorganisation of trusts and corporate structures, we work to preserve client capital and to establish succession planning of ownership structures for family businesses.
