Offshore Leaks DatabaseThe International Consortium of Investigative Journalists is a global network of more than 190 investigative journalists in more than 65 countries who collaborate on in-depth investigative stories.
The ICIJ database contains information on almost 320,000 offshore entities that are part of the Panama Papers and the Offshore Leaks investigations. The data covers nearly 40 years up to the end of 2015 and links to people and companies in more than 200 countries and territories.

If you search the ICIJ database with a string like:
John Smithit will return lists every of object containing "John" or "Smith" as well as "John Smith".
Entering the search as follows produces what may be intended:
John AND Smithresults in every object containing names such as "John Smith", "Mr John Smith", "Smith John" and even "John Robert Smith", but none that contain only "John" or "Smith". It also returns both uppercase and lowercase values.
