OffshoreAlert has completed the backdating of its coverage of actions filed at the Financial Services Division of the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands back to the first case ever heard in the specialist court on November 2, 2009. OffshoreAlert subscribers now have unlimited access to all of those actions, which are otherwise accessible through manual retrieval at the courthouse. (Not a current subscriber? Learn more here.)

Except where a case has been sealed by the court or is otherwise unavailable, OffshoreAlert has copies of each writ, petition, summons, or other initial filing, all of which can be searched from our website using our 'Search Box' or from our Grand Court of the Cayman Islands web page.

"The Cayman Islands is one of OffshoreAlert's most important jurisdictions," said David Marchant, Publisher of OffshoreAlert. "It is one of the world's leading international financial centers, particularly in the areas of banking and hedge funds, and a significant amount of business is transacted there involving major businesses and high net worth individuals located all around the world."

The first action ever dealt with by the financial court was a petition for the liquidation of Laurus Offshore Fund, Ltd. to continue under the supervision of the Court and for Gordon MacRae and G. James Cleaver to be appointed as Joint Official Liquidators.

OffshoreAlert also has copies of many – but not all – initial filings at the Civil Division of the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands over the last 18 months. We are continuing to back-date these records in order to offer subscribers more comprehensive coverage.

OffshoreAlert has also started obtaining copies of initial filings at the Commercial and Civil Divisions of the British Virgin Islands High Court, which can also be found in our database.

OffshoreAlert's database now contains details of more than 20,000 civil actions filed at the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands, Bermuda Supreme Court or the British Virgin Islands High Court.

We update our records on a regular basis, usually weekly, in order to bring subscribers details of the latest cases.
