About us

Overview

The Cains group is an Isle of Man based independent international law firm and professional services business and is at the forefront of the development of the Isle of Man as an international finance centre.

We provide Isle of Man legal expertise to our international and domestic clients and regularly co-ordinate the provision of advice and the management of multi-jurisdictional transactions. Our lawyers work closely with metropolitan professional advisory firms with regard to company incorporations, transactions, restructuring and related corporate activities.

Our international clients include major banks and financial institutions and multi-national enterprises including major airlines and ship-owners, in addition to other public and private companies drawn from a wide cross-section of global industry and commerce. We also act for a select number of private individuals. Cains Fiduciaries (licensed by the Isle of Man Financial Services Authority) has over £10 billion worth of assets under administration.

We make great efforts to contribute to the success of our home jurisdiction. Our lawyers participate at the highest level in both national and international policy initiatives and are involved in numerous sectoral working groups aimed at ensuring that the Isle of Man remains an attractive jurisdiction for reputable international business.
