  • Liquidation of a company incorporated in the Cayman Islands – how to determine whether liquidators are sufficiently independent
  • Test of insolvency for a receivership of a segregated portfolio
  • Minority shareholder rights under Cayman Islands law
  • More thoughts on the ruling in The Matter of Padma Fund L.P. and potential impact on Investment Fund practice
