Cayman Islands > Dispute resolution(Next Generation Partners)
Drawing on a robust network of offices across the world, Ogier fields a deep and experienced team which is routinely engaged on high-profile insolvencies, fraud cases, trust litigation, and fair value s.238 disputes. Arbitral award enforcement proceedings and contentious regulatory matters are further core workflows for the practice. The contentious group is jointly led by Cayman disputes head Jennifer Fox, trust disputes chair Rachael Reynolds KC, and global dispute resolution chief Marc Kish. William Jones maintains a robust restructuring and corporate recovery practice, where he handles matters ranging from schemes of arrangement and enforcement actions to contractual disputes and insurance claims. Newly promoted partner Christopher Levers focuses on insolvencies, while fellow counsel Deborah Barker Roye specialises in contentious trust and estate matters. Senior associate Nour Khaleq is also recommended.
Cayman Islands > Regulatory and compliance
A strong mix of international banks, crypto asset companies and regulators seek out Ogier for its wide-ranging contentious and non-contentious capabilities; recent areas of expertise include handling CIMA inspections, judicial reviews and administrative appeals regarding AML enforcement decisions. Key names to note within the firm include investment funds regulatory head Joanne Huckle; corporate and private client specialist Martin Byers; banking regulatory head James Heinicke; William Jones, who focuses on local matters; and Jennifer Fox, who spearheads the group’s contentious offering. Following her arrival from Bedell Cristin in April 2022, senior associate Megan Mcluskie has worked with various investment managers, funds, and administrators. Dave Sherwin has left the firm.
