Offshore Litigation

The work our members undertake in such jurisdictions is varied and covers all of Chambers’ core practise areas such as banking and financial service disputes, civil fraud, general commercial litigation, company law and insolvency. Many of our members are admitted to practise in one or more of the above jurisdictions and are often admitted on an ad-hoc basis.

In addition to conducting work in offshore jurisdictions, our members are frequently instructed on cases involving cross-border elements. Our members advise and represent clients in relation to a wide range of cross-border issues such as jurisdiction, choice of law and recognition and enforcement of judgments both in England and Wales and abroad. Our expertise extends beyond general commercial litigation to specialist areas such as the recognition and enforcement of foreign insolvency proceedings.

Both Chambers and individual members are recognised as leading practitioners in offshore work in the legal directories. A group of our members have also co-authored a free book entitled “Commercial and Insolvency Litigation in the DIFC”, copies of which are available to our clients by contacting our clerks.
