The dinuclear title complex, [Sn2(C7H6Cl)4(C9H16NO2S2)4], lies on a center of inversion. The SnIV atoms are chelated by one of the two carboxyl­ate ions; the other carboxyl­ate ion bridges two metal atoms. The geometry of the six-coordinate SnIV atom is a distorted trans-C2SnO4 octa­hedron [C—Sn—C = 155.32 (8)°].
