Prevailing market conditions have seen a marked increase in take-private transactions by company founder and management through Cayman statutory mergers, and dissent from these mergers has become increasingly common. Our clients include individual dissenters and consortiums of dissenters across a wide-range of industries including mobile phone technology, oil and gas, medical technology, hospitality and e-commerce, many of which have operated in the People’s Republic of China (PRC).

The primary driver for Cayman Island merger disputes is the wave of take-private transactions emanating from the Far East. Appleby’s deep roots in the Hong Kong market and extensive exposure to the PRC allows our team to offer a seamless service between our Cayman Islands qualified experts in Hong Kong and our merger disputes specialists based in the Cayman Islands.
