CHW’s key practice areas are corporate & commercial, litigation & dispute resolution, private client & real estate, employment and intellectual property.

Our business approach is to provide a high standard of professional advice through a smaller team of attorneys who develop close working relationships directly with our clients and those law firms across the globe who instruct us on international transactions and matters.

The chw corporate team has developed a strong corporate and commercial practice that has continued to grow over the last few years despite challenging economic conditions in bermuda.  Our attorneys (who each have specific areas of expertise) have naturally developed a broad skill set and together we advise on wide range of matters, including corporate finance, M&A and private equity work, insurance and reinsurance, the formation and ongoing regulation of investment funds, structuring advice to global corporate groups and aircraft and ship financings.

Our litigation department is amongst the foremost in bermuda.  its attorneys work individually and in teams to provide practical advice and competent representation in a wide range of corporate and commercial disputes, including insurance and reinsurance litigation, hostile take-overs and shareholder disputes, compulsory liquidations and insolvency, receiverships, breach of trust actions and international trade.

Our client base is global and covers a wide range of industry sectors, including captive insurance, natural resources, aviation, shipping, investment funds, retail and telecommunications businesses.  Corporate clients range small privately-owned businesses to global corporates and listed companies.
