Guy is a partner in our Litigation, Insolvency & Restructuring Group where he specialises in insolvency, restructuring and investment fund litigation. He joined Campbells in 2005 having spent the previous eight years working for the London office of a leading international law firm.
Guy advises and appears in the Cayman Islands Courts on behalf of provisional and official liquidators, creditors, shareholders, directors, managers and other professional service providers in relation to a broad range of pre and post liquidation disputes and restructurings. He has acted in litigation involving widely varying commercial contexts and structures, but his practice principally involves distressed and failed investment funds.
He has been involved in many of the jurisdiction’s highest profile disputes, liquidations and restructurings. Notable recent instructions include advising LDK Solar CO., Ltd (one of the world’s largest manufacturers of photovoltaic products) and its provisional liquidators in connection with the restructuring of over USD$700 million of offshore debt across the LDK group; acting for DPM Mellon (an affiliate of BNY Mellon) in connection with substantial claims arising from the US$500m liquidation of the Sphinx group of funds; and advising the provisional liquidators of Arcapita Investment Holdings Limited in respect of the US$1.2bn restructuring of the company and its parent, Arcapita Bank B.S.C.

Guy is a regular speaker at international insolvency and fund conferences and has given expert evidence of Cayman Islands law to various foreign courts.
The Insolvency and Restructuring Practice:
Campbells’ Insolvency and Restructuring Practice is widely recognised as a market leader in the Cayman Islands and as having a strong and growing presence in the British Virgin Islands.
We act for local and overseas insolvency professionals, creditors, investors, directors and other professional service providers in connection with all aspects of the restructuring and winding up of companies, investment funds, limited partnerships and structured finance entities. Our 17 litigators have the experience and strength in depth to handle the largest and most complex liquidations and restructurings. We have specific experience of co-ordinating cross-border appointments, obtaining injunctions, assisting with gathering evidence and obtaining recognition and assistance from overseas courts.
We take pride in our responsiveness and levels of service, the quality of our advice and advocacy, and above all our long track record of achieving our clients’ objectives in and out of court. The size of our team enables us to ensure that each case is staffed appropriately, which in turn leads to cost efficiencies and value for our clients.
Campbells have been leading the way for over 43 years, advising both local and international clients on Cayman Islands and British Virgin Islands law. We are regularly trusted to advise some of the most prominent names in finance, investment, insolvency and insurance and are frequently involved in the largest and most complex disputes and transactions in both jurisdictions.
Our legal team is internationally recognised for their expertise by leading directories and trade publications and we are also proud to be actively involved in the development of legislation, sitting on critical government legislative committees.
