About Forbes Hare

Forbes Hare is an independent law firm practising British Virgin Islands and Cayman Islands law. Our core practice areas are litigation, insolvency, corporate, finance, investments funds and private client and trust law.

We have an experienced litigation team which is able to assist in contentious matters of practically any nature. The majority of work we undertake involves, in one way or another, disputes involving offshore structures and entities in the British Virgin Islands and Cayman Islands. Much of our work has cross-border elements. While our primary markets are the BVI and Cayman Islands, we are also able to assist in cases involving other common law Caribbean jurisdictions where we have lawyers locally admitted and/or relationships with local firms.

We have a broad-based corporate insolvency practice, and act for creditors, debtors and office holders in a variety of insolvency and restructuring situations. We have considerable familiarity with the use of insolvency remedies in fraud and asset tracing exercises, and in shareholder disputes.
