Planning & Construction

We work with both major developers and private clients on a broad range of property-related matters in the Cayman Islands.


Property disputes often involve multiple parties with differing rights and liabilities. Cases can often be complex, with specialist legal construction expertise needed.


Our expert team has extensive experience with working on a wide range of property disputes, often working alongside specialist construction counsel. This helps ensure the demands of all property cases are managed to the highest standards.

We also support the use of alternative dispute resolution in appropriate circumstances, where disputes need to be resolved quickly.

Our Services Include

  • Planning applications and appeals.
  • Contractual disputes.
  • Dilapidation claims.
  • Professional negligence actions.
  • Compulsory purchase compensation claims.
