Litigation and Dispute Resolution

Priestleys provides the full range of litigation and dispute resolutions services.  We advise individual clients and businesses in every sector, ranging from multinational corporations and major financial institutions to small businesses and government agencies often with multi-jurisdictional implications.  We offer commercially focused and practical solutions affecting our clients’ interests across industries, geographic locations and jurisdictions.

We work with our clients to demystify the process, reduce uncertainty and obtain the result which best serves our client’s interests whether it be by seeking a settlement which avoids litigation, through mediation, or, if necessary, by way of arbitration or litigation in the Cayman courts.

We have a wide range of expertise in commercial litigation to meet the broad spectrum of our clients’ needs, advising on all aspects of company and corporate disputes including insolvency, directors’ duties, obtaining and discharging injunctions and corporate misfeasance.  Our litigators are equally well versed in civil litigation including actions for breach of contract, personal injury and other civil wrongs, debt recovery, conversion, and defamation.

Priestleys is a boutique firm. A key strength therefore is our ability to adapt quickly to our client’s specific needs. This is best exemplified by our litigators’ ability to work closely with our non-contentious lawyers in crossover matters such as disputes relating to real estate (including landlord and tenant matters), investment funds and employment relations allowing us to leverage all the expertise we have and afford our clients a full perspective.

In the unlikely event that our clients face regulatory or criminal investigation we are experts in guiding them through the processes. We have an impressive track record at persuading investigative and prosecutorial authorities to draw back from bringing charges and defending those charges as and when they arise.
