Although Gibraltar is not a fully independent territory, its constitutional arrangements with the United Kingdom – the EU member state having responsibility for Gibraltar – mean that Gibraltar is often included in certain bilateral and multilateral conventions entered into by the United Kingdom. As an offshore finance centre, Gibraltar deals with international aspects on a daily basis and our experienced dispute resolution advocates consequently advise clients across the world on disputes that have a Gibraltar element. We have been involved in high profile international cases both as the leading lawyers and as part of an international legal team. We have extensive language capability and through our associates overseas, we have access to specialist lawyers counts in a wide range of jurisdictions including England and Wales, Ireland, France, Malta, Cyprus, Spain, Italy, Sweden, certain Caribbean jurisdictions and elsewhere. Resident practitioners can communicate effectively in English, Spanish, French, Italian and German and we have Arab speaking personnel on hand as required. We engage language bureaux in case of necessity.
