Chen Foley has a varied practice with an emphasis on general commercial disputes relating to offshore funds, offshore trusts and insolvency. He is presently assisting in the multijurisdictional winding up of an offshore investment fund, and is advising on recovery proceedings ancillary to that liquidation. Given the nature of his practice he is proficient in handling matters that raise questions regarding the laws of multiple jurisdictions. In this regard he is able to provide counsel on Bermudian law and practice generally, particularly when required for the purpose of proceedings outside Bermuda that have a Bermudian dimension.
He also advises Bermuda and London market insurance and reinsurance carriers in respect of claims involving crime, directors’ and officers’ liability, errors and omissions liability and general liability, including policies written on the “Bermuda Form”, where his experience includes investigating liability and quantum, providing counsel in relation to cover and managing coverage disputes.
