Practices: International Disputes
The global war for profits is on, and your business is a combatant. Don’t let it become a casualty.
When your business is threatened anywhere in the world, Brown Rudnick can help. We’re known for taking fast, decisive action to protect your interests in complex cross-border disputes.
Working seamlessly from offices in New York, London, Boston and Washington, DC, and with a global network of top advocates, our lawyers do the impossible every day. Using our deep trial experience and long-standing relationships, we can help you freeze funds, recover assets, and collect and present evidence all over the world, even in challenging jurisdictions like the former Soviet Union countries, Caribbean financial havens and the Middle East.
For example, in a $230 million fraud case arising in Russia, we filed complaints in five jurisdictions, and obtained asset freezes and US travel bans on more than 60 state officials involved in the fraud. In a case involving funds in the British Virgin Islands, we obtained a seminal ruling that upheld US Bankruptcy Court jurisdiction, despite the fact that the underlying claims involved foreign law issues.
Results like these are why clients all over the world trust us to resolve cross-border disputes. We handle matters involving:
- Corporate fraud and investigations
- Contractual disputes
- Banking litigation
- Jurisdiction disputes
- Shareholder litigation
- Asset tracing and recovery
- Bankruptcy, insolvency and restructuring
- Professional liability
- Insurance and reinsurance
- Regulatory investigations
Our lawyers have in-depth trial experience not only before the US and UK Courts and various international arbitral tribunals, but also before the Courts of many offshore jurisdictions, including the BVI, Bermuda and Dubai. Our lawyers also provide advice on all pre-litigation matters and all forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) including mediation are embedded into our review of the remedies available to our clients.
