Our team has a real depth of knowledge that can add value from the beginning.  In the Cayman Islands, for example, we enjoy an excellent relationship with the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority, local audit firms and the local insurance managers association.  We assisted with the drafting of the Cayman Islands insurance laws, related regulations and amendments and have unrivalled understanding of the regulatory environment.  We continue to shape the insurance sector by working on innovative products.

In addition, our Dispute Resolution & Insolvency team has a deep understanding of the needs of insurers and policyholders in case of dispute resolution.  We also advise across the whole spectrum of corporate law, from corporate formality / corporate governance at one end, to cross-border mergers and acquisitions of insurers at the other end.
