Forbes Hare is an independent law firm practising British Virgin Islands and Cayman Islands law. Our core practice areas are litigation, insolvency, corporate, finance and commercial law.
We have an experienced litigation team, which is able to assist in contentious matters of practically any nature. The majority of work we undertake involves, in one way or another, disputes involving offshore structures and entities in the British Virgin Islands and Cayman Islands. Much of our work has cross-border elements. While our primary markets are the BVI and Cayman Islands, we are also able to assist in cases involving other common law Caribbean jurisdictions where we have lawyers locally admitted and/or relationships with local firms.
We have a broad-based corporate insolvency practice, and act for creditors, debtors and office holders in a variety of insolvency and restructuring situations. We have considerable familiarity with the use of insolvency remedies of fraud and asset tracing exercises, and in shareholder disputes.
We have a cross-departmental distressed funds group, and regularly advise stakeholders and functionaries of all types in relation to their rights, obligations and available options. We have advised and acted in relation to insolvent hedge funds and private equity funds, both in relation to their restructuring, and on behalf of liquidators of such funds.
