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.
Brown Rudnick has a wealth of experience and an outstanding track record in conducting complex litigation and arbitration 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 and Guernsey, as well as other jurisdictions of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court, the QFC in Qatar, the DIFC Courts, and the Dubai World Tribunal.
As the needs of our clients become increasingly complex, disputes now rarely involve a single jurisdiction or court. Our international team is experienced at leading complex, cross-border disputes, spanning multiple jurisdictions. We have acted as global coordinating counsel in complex disputes, shaping both strategy and substantive arguments, acting as advocates, and delivering seamless services in the most difficult and delicate cases. We have 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 includes Arabic, French, Korean, Georgian, Lithuanian, Farsi, and Russian speakers.
Our approach to dispute resolution is also not solely court or arbitration focused. We routinely and successfully negotiate positive outcomes on behalf of our clients, thereby avoiding the expense, delay, and uncertainty that often comes with formal proceedings.
