We have unrivalled experience of large-scale, complex litigation involving offshore jurisdictions such as the Cayman Islands, the British Virgin Islands, Bermuda, Anguilla, St Vincent and The Grenadines and the Turks & Caicos Islands. As a result, we have extensive experience in overcoming problems of conflicts of laws, enforceability and recognition of judgments and orders and the application of foreign laws, which are recurrent themes in offshore litigation and cross-border insolvency.
The following issues are typical of our experience of offshore litigation:
• coordinating onshore and offshore litigation;
• advising as to the optimal jurisdiction for the commencement of the main proceedings, and for the commencement of necessary satellite proceedings;
• strategic advice as to how best to avoid forum non conveniens and lis alibi pendens issues caused by litigation in multiple jurisdictions;
• advice as to enforceability of judgments and arbitration awards internationally.
