Cayman merger disputes Lawyers

Our Merger Disputes lawyers in the Cayman Islands regularly advise dissenting shareholders who are dissatisfied with offer-merger consideration in proceedings to resolve the fair value of shares.

The team, which also has experts based in Hong Kong, is regarded as a market leader in respect to both appraisal rights claims and advising on fiduciary duty considerations. This is evidenced by rankings and commentary in highly respected legal directories such as Chambers and Partners, and The Legal 500, with recent praise of our Cayman dispute resolution team highlighting how “they are very alive to commercial issues and pressures, and they are mindful of this when discussing their strategy” (Chambers).
