Ogier fields a ‘deep bench of experts in Cayman funds law’, noted for their ‘keen sense of the need to balance legal and commercial concerns’. The investment funds team, which is led by James Bergstrom , advises on the whole gamut of fund structures and strategies, spanning hedge, private equity, real estate, infrastructure, energy, credit, debt, venture capital, cryptocurrency and hybrid funds. In addition to its North American fund connections, the firm also has a strong Latin America practice that is overseen by Giorgio Subiotto, who is ‘great in working with international deals due to language skills and knowledge’. Private equity and crypto funds expert Nick Rogers , regulatory expert Joanne Huckle , hedge fund specialist Justin Savage  and Angus Davison  are other key members of the group, which in February 2021 saw the promotions of Tim Cone and Emma Sutherland  to partner. At counsel level, Barry McEwan is a key name to note.
