Practice areas

The Legal 500 Caribbean 2023 will be published in November 2022 with three new sections (explained in more detail below) alongside the traditional offshore markets.

New sections
Elsewhere in the Caribbean – Leading firms

This section expands our Caribbean coverage to make room for all jurisdictions and firms in the Caribbean that are not currently covered in the wider Caribbean guide.

Foreign-based expertise

This section will contain coverage of teams and practitioners with notable Caribbean expertise not based in the Caribbean. This will be a global category, so practitioners from all markets are welcome to submit.

Please note this section has a distinct submission template that should be used by submitting firms.

The English Bar Offshore

This section is a continuation of what was released in the 2022 edition of the UK guide as the “Offshore” section of the London Bar, and has the same scope – including Offshore work outside the Caribbean (noting that the DIFC and ADGM are not considered in the scope of this section). Chambers in London and elsewhere in England & Wales are welcome to submit.

The main contact for queries regarding this section is Will Tolcher, Bar editor – will.tolcher@legal500.com
