Litigation Law Practice:

Campbells is widely recognised for its litigation strength and has particular expertise in investment funds disputes and all aspects of the liquidations of investment funds. Members of the department appear before the Grand Court, Court of Appeal and Privy Council and have been involved in numerous reported cases. Clients range from large international, financial and trading organisations to liquidators and trustees in bankruptcy of international and local entities, participants in investment and trust structures and Cayman Islands Government Agencies. In particular, we have substantial experience acting for liquidators, creditors and shareholders of distressed companies in cross border liquidations and corporate reorganisations, as well as acting for the local restructuring departments of the major accounting firms.

Our litigators also regularly appear as expert witnesses and speak at local and international conferences, and a number of our lawyers are admitted to practise in the BVI.
