Maples and Calder is recognised as a market leader in consensual and non-consensual restructurings and contentious and non-contentious insolvency proceedings. In light of the contentious nature of much of Maples and Calder's insolvency and restructuring work, there is a significant overlap between its restructuring / insolvency practice and its disputes practice. Given the international nature of the businesses of companies incorporated in the Cayman Islands and BVI, almost all of Maples and Calder's insolvency and restructuring matters have a cross-border element. These cases therefore regularly involve close co-ordination with overseas counsel and Courts in the world's leading business centres. Maples and Calder has extensive experience in dealing with parallel and / or ancillary proceedings in multiple jurisdictions in order to promote the orderly restructuring or wind down of a company group in an economic and expeditious manner.
Established in 1967, Maples and Calder celebrates 50 years of award winning excellence in 2017.
As the global economic landscape continues to dramatically evolve, issues surrounding cross-border insolvency and restructuring continue to come ever more sharply into focus and importance.
