7BR is a leading UK and international multi-disciplinary set. We have provided expertise in complex and important offshore matters for over 30 years, with particular emphasis on international Business Crime, Commercial Disputes, Product Liability, and cross-border group actions. Our advocates, who have shaped the development of the Common Law in the English appellate Courts, provide key specialist advice where novel points of fact and law arise offshore. Our multi-disciplinary credentials enable us to provide strategic advice and representation across a range of practice areas and jurisdictions. We can provide bespoke teams to best meet the needs of clients and can quickly assist either on the ground or remotely from London. Our silks and juniors offer strategic and commercially realistic advice offshore, particularly during the formative stages of litigation.

Individuals are recognised by Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners Directories under several categories both in the Global, UK, and Asia and Pacific guides. We receive instructions from governments, corporates, offshore regulators, and private clients both on a referral and direct basis. We regularly advise or appear in litigation before the courts of Jersey, Isle of Man, Guernsey, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Dubai, Luxembourg, Cyprus, Israel, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, and the across the Caribbean.
