International Litigation Management

Litigation, Arbitration, and Insolvency Case Management

  • Collectively, we have recommended and overseen hundreds litigation and insolvency cases, including complex cases involving fraud. We have also enforced arbitration awards.
  • We assist clients in litigation strategy and the selection, engagement and oversight of litigation.
  • We formulate possible litigation strategies and evaluate their cost-effectiveness.
  • We help ensure that litigation is being diligently prosecuted, that expense funds advanced by a client are appropriately expended, and that hourly-fee counsel charges are being controlled.
  • We alert clients when we see opportunities to settle, something hourly fee lawyers may fail to do.
  • In insolvency cases, we pro-actively represent a client’s claim, and can serve on a creditors’ committee.

Credit Documentation for International Transactions

Credit Document Preparation and Protocols

  • We help clients develop localized document templates.
  • We assist clients comport with local formalities (e.g., by knowing which jurisdictions require: a guarantor to hand-write a guarantee, use of stamped paper, and use a jurat (as opposed to a simple acknowledgment).
  • We also help document debt restructures, including arranging and perfecting collateral interests, and insuring that import tariffs are paid so that imported equipment is properly nationalized.
