The 7BR Offshore and International Team specialises in advice and representation in offshore jurisdictions and in cases with an international element. Our members are experienced at acting for diverse clients in various areas of practice including:
We advise and act in substantial criminal and civil fraud cases including in the field of corruption. We have worked in Hong Kong, Dubai (including the DIFC), several of the Crown Dependencies (the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man), Cyprus, the Caribbean, Africa and the Indian sub-continent.
Members of chambers have appeared in many constitutional cases before the Privy Council and worked in the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man, Gibraltar, Hong Kong and the Caribbean (including Belize, the Cayman Islands, St Vincent, Trinidad and Tobago and the Turks and Caicos Islands). We also regularly appear before the European Court of Human Rights.
We have investigated (in country) and advised in substantial crimes against humanity proceedings. One of our door tenants is currently prosecuting in the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (‘the STL’) in The Hague and one of our members is on the list of counsel at the International Criminal Court and the STL.
Members have been instructed in several arbitral proceedings. These include proceedings under the DIFC – LCIA rules and in the International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes (‘ICSID’).
We advise on a range of issues involving Public International Law. One of our door tenants is an International Law fellow of Wolfson College Cambridge and of the Lauterpacht Centre for International Law.
