Law firm releases first Cayman company law text


Conyers Dill & Pearman, an international law firm advising on the laws of Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands and Mauritius,m has announce the publication of the first definitive text on Cayman Islands company and commercial law.

The book, published by Sweet & Maxwell Thomson Reuters, has been written by several of the firm’s senior attorneys.

Honourable Anthony Smellie QC, Chief Justice of The Cayman Islands said: “The authors are to be commended for undertaking this long overdue task of providing an up to date and authoritative practitioners’ reference book on these subjects which will no doubt prove to be invaluable.”

Conyers said the Cayman Islands has positioned itself as a market leader in the formation of mutual funds – estimated to house about 75 percent  of world’s hedge funds and nearly half the industry’s estimated $1.1 trillion of assets under management.

The publication summarises a number of important recent cases decided by the Cayman Islands Courts in connection with shareholder rights, directors’ duties, and insolvency, says Conyers.  It also covers recent trends in Cayman Islands company law including IPOs of Cayman Islands companies and ‘go private’ transactions and provides comprehensive coverage on the latest policies set by the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority in relation to mutual funds.
