7BR’s Offshore & International barristers specialises in advice and representation in offshore jurisdictions and in cases with an international element. We are the leading set of chambers for fraud related work in the Crown Dependencies and have a strong track record in Hong Kong and Cyprus.

Our members are experienced at acting for diverse clients in various areas of practice including: Serious Fraud, Financial Regulation, Sanctions, International Criminal Law, Privy Council and European Court of Human Rights. International Arbitration, Public and Private International Law and General Civil Litigation.

Serious Fraud

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), the Crown Dependencies (the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man), Cyprus, the Caribbean, Africa and the Indian sub-continent. In the field of corruption, we have worked on the ground in a number of jurisdictions where these issues arise regularly. We have also acted for a number of overseas investigating and prosecuting authorities and in parallel civil and criminal proceedings. This experience gives us important advantages in dealing with these types of cases.

Financial Regulation

We have uniquely deep knowledge and understanding of the offshore finance industry and the regulatory issues that arise there. We have acted as inspectors (or equivalent) for the regulator and have acted for those subject to regulatory investigations or proceedings.

Sanctions

We advise on all the major European sanctions regimes. We have advised government authorities on listing issues and private individuals and companies about the potential application of sanctions to their activities. We have given a number of seminars on sanctions related issues, particularly in Cyprus.

International Criminal Law

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, the Kosovo Specialist Chambers (‘the KSC’) and the STL.

Privy Council & European Court of Human Rights

Members of chambers have appeared in a number of cases before the Privy Council (including from Jersey, the Isle of Man and the Cayman Islands). We have also appeared before the European Court of Human Rights.

International Arbitration

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’).

Public & Private International Law

We advise on a range of issues involving Public and Private International Law. One of our door tenants is an International Law fellow of Wolfson College Cambridge and of the Lauterpacht Centre for International Law.
