Marc's practice focuses on the restructuring and financial recovery of distressed Cayman Islands entities and offers commercial solutions to creditors, shareholders and beneficiaries of entities threatened with insolvency.
He regularly advises managers, directors, general partners, office holders and stakeholders as to the options available to them in cross-border insolvency, and as to the interplay between Cayman and onshore restructurings and insolvency proceedings. He also represents trustees, protectors and beneficiaries in relation to their rights under offshore trust arrangements, and shareholders of distressed funds in connection with disputes arising out, or in anticipation of, events of default or unpaid redemptions or capital calls.

Marc regularly contributes to legislative subcommittees advising the Cayman Islands government as to the desirability and effect of proposed legislation concerning, for example, restructuring and insolvency legislation, contractual rights of third parties, damages awarded in medical negligence actions, and contingency and conditional fee and third party funding arrangements.
