    Depends on how you define ‘brother-in-law’ and whether the persons involved has siblings, If ‘brother in law’ means ‘sister’s husband’ only AND my mother doesn’t have any sisters, her brother’s brother-in-law would be my father.
    Otherwise: If my mother has at least one sister, my mother’s brother’s brother in law can be the husband of her sister (i.e.,  my mother’s brother in law) also.  Further, if ‘we take the other meaning of ‘brother in law’ (wife’s brother), my mother’s brother’s brother in law can be his wife’s brother.

    In both the above cases, is there a single, specific term to address such a relation? No idea…! (In ‘Indian style’, I could call him ‘uncle’, but that won’t be in the correct sense of the word.)
