Members of Chambers conduct a wide range of litigious and advisory work in most offshore jurisdictions and accept instructions from foreign clients who have no established relationship with English solicitors. We regularly refer clients to UK solicitors and liaise with them to provide the full range of English legal services.

Many of us have been admitted on an ad hoc or permanent basis to the bars of other countries. We have particularly strong connections with the United States, the Caribbean jurisdictions, the Channel Islands, Isle of Man, Ireland (North and South), Gibraltar and the Far East where members have appeared in important cases and where appropriate on appeal to the Privy Council.

Our expertise in commercial litigation, banking and finance, insolvency, trust law and the land laws of other jurisdictions and our extensive experience of interim remedies and as trial lawyers are particularly valuable.

Recently members of Chambers have been involved in a variety of proceedings involving the Madoff and Weavering Funds in the British Virgin Islands, Barbados and Bermuda and Cayman Islands.

Junior members of chambers often assist with offshore case preparation on secondment.
