To facilitate Cayman’s position as one of the best and most multi-faceted international financial centres, there are a plethora of law firms supporting the financial services industry.
The offshore ‘magic circle’ thrives in the Cayman Islands, represented by legal firms such as Walkers, Maples Group, Mourant, Ogier, Appleby, Carey Olsen, Conyers and Harneys. Boutique firms also thrive in Cayman with their practice ranging from domestic matters such as immigration disputes to large-scale commercial advisory.
The legal sector in the Cayman Islands is broad, and practice spans across Finance (including Banking, Trusts, Funds), Litigation, Corporate, Insolvency & Restructuring, and Dispute Resolution. The nature of an ever-changing, complex local and global regulatory environment has led several legal practices with substantial regulatory work to expand their global regulatory teams.

Highly skilled and appropriately experienced law professionals are always being sought, in this expanding market. Affinity support the legal sector with the sourcing of talented and specialist attorneys, as well as a range of support staff such as Legal Secretaries and Corporate Administration.
