The asymmetric unit of the title compound, C15H10BrClO3, consists of three crystallographically independent mol­ecules. The dihedral angles between the benzene rings in the three mol­ecules are 68.8 (2), 0.7 (3) and 66.1 (2)°. In the crystal, the three independent mol­ecules are inter­connected by C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds, leading to isolated trimers.
