Caribbean / Offshore
We have a stand-out team of 230+ lawyers in Europe and the United States. And we get deals done around the world. Perspective and judgment; focus and agility – adding up to more than you might expect.
In addition to our extensive practices in the US and UK, Brown Rudnick has a wealth of experience and an outstanding track record in conducting complex litigation and arbitration matters in numerous offshore jurisdictions and free-zones.
We are regularly instructed by clients to manage disputes in offshore jurisdictions including the British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Bahamas, Bermuda, Jersey & Guernsey, as well as other jurisdictions of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court, the QFC in Qatar, and the DIFC Courts and Dubai Worlds Tribunal.
As our clients’ needs have become increasingly sophisticated, disputes now rarely involve a single jurisdiction or court. Our international team is experienced at leading complex, cross-border disputes spanning multiple jurisdictions. We bring hands-on know-how of acting as global coordinating counsel in complex disputes, shaping both strategy and substantive arguments, acting as advocates, and delivering a seamless services in the most difficult and delicate cases. Brown Rudnick has been involved in prominent examples of major offshore litigation in recent years, including litigation arising out of the Madoff fraud.
Our highly skilled and integrated team of English barristers, French avocats and US trial attorneys have been admitted to various offshore bars for specific matters, but we are equally comfortable working with local law firms in the relevant jurisdiction and in coordinating litigation worldwide across multiple jurisdictions. In doing so we are able to call upon our experience in resolving both common law and civil law disputes affecting our clients. Our disputes team include Arabic, French, Korean, Georgian, Lithuanian, Farsi, and Russian speakers, which gives us a great deal of flexibility to service our international clients.
Our approach to dispute resolution is also not solely court or arbitration-focused. Just as important is our ability, where possible, to negotiate positive outcomes on behalf of our clients, thereby avoiding the expense, delay and uncertainty that often comes with formal proceedings.
