Our Offshore and International team provides for the growing demand for English barristers in overseas jurisdictions and in international cases in the English courts.
We have a significant reputation in all areas of the law and relating to offshore jurisdictions. Our instructions include cases in Jersey, Guernsey, the Isle of Man, the Caribbean (the Cayman Islands, Trinidad and Tobago and the TCI), Bermuda, the Dubai International Financial Centre (‘DIFC’) courts and arbitration centre and in Hong Kong. We also appear in the Privy Council.
In addition, we have a number of members who are instructed almost exclusively in cases in which wider international issues arise. Members of the team have worked in countries throughout the world and their expertise includes commercial and investment arbitration, constitutional and public law, private and public international law and international criminal law. Members of the team have a well established expertise in dealing with all aspects of international corruption and money laundering cases as well as regulatory action arising from discoveries made in the investigation and challenges to those investigations. A number of members are admitted to practice in overseas jurisdictions both on an ad hoc and permanent basis.
