Litigation - Civil & Commercial

The prospect of litigation is not an enjoyable experience, however, at Baycourt Chambers, we boast of our skilled trial attorneys. Our lawyers are involved in every stage of litigation. Regardless of the complexity of the case, we pledge to provide our clients with the best legal talent and acute representation.

As in all areas of law, our initial objective is to explore with our clients whether a prompt and reasonable commercial solution to the problem can be achieved, without resorting to litigation. However, when this proves impossible, or when a client's defenses, or its ability to eventually recover, are at risk, we are prepared to move promptly to ensure that those rights are fully protected.

Through innovative dispute resolution strategies and effective case management, our exceptional litigation professionals, aim to identify and execute the most advantageous business-oriented solutions, either by pursuing or defending litigation or arbitration proceedings, or through alternative methods, such as mediation.

The team’s financial disputes are managed with confidence by providing robust, timely and thorough advice on regulatory, legal and reputational issues.

We appear regularly at the Courts of First Instance, the Court of Appeal and the Privy Council and have been involved in critical decisions in relation to the limitation period and the powers of mortgagees.

We act on behalf of a broad range of clients including banks and trust companies, government agencies, financial institutions, insurance companies and private clients.

We focus on the following practice areas:

  • Trust Litigation
  • Insurance Litigation
  • Enforcement of Foreign Judgments
  • Employment and Labour issues
  • Admiralty Litigation
  • Corporate and Commercial Litigation/Disputes
  • Asset Protection
  • Negligence and Personal Injury
  • Banking Litigation
  • Contested Debt Recovery

The Litigation team has been actively engaged in multi-jurisdictional disputes. Most notable is the representation at the Commission of Inquiry in the Turks & Caicos Islands and in multinational cross-border disputes.

Our wealth of experience and thorough understanding of our clients' needs enable us to realize and meet their business objectives.
