Ogier's Cayman Islands Restructuring and Corporate Recovery team routinely acts on cross-border liquidations, receiverships and restructurings involving overseas insolvency practitioners and clients with a variety of on­shore financial interests, often in conjunction with Cayman Islands and/or US Bankruptcy Court proceedings.

We advise insolvency professionals, fund managers, administrators, auditors, banks, financial intermediaries, corporate investors and trustees in respect of claims, duties and practical solutions.

We have extensive experience of advising on alternatives to traditional bankruptcy and restructuring methods for clients who insist on efficient service and higher returns. We regularly advise in conjunction with onshore counsel and are able to provide round-the-clock advice on Cayman Islands law across our network of offices.


We are committed to using technology to improve efficiency, consistency and client service.


97% of surveyed clients would reinstruct us, and 98% would recommend us to others.
