In the title compound, C22H15BrO4, the bromo­benzene ring is inclined at dihedral angles of 23.87 (11) and 52.37 (11)° with respect to the planes of the two benzene rings. The two benzene rings of the biphenyl unit form a dihedral angle of 49.08 (11)°. In the crystal, mol­ecules are linked into [100] chains by C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds.
