International Asset Recovery
In recent years, the potential for international fraud and the environment in which it occurs have dramatically changed. The Firm’s International Asset Recovery group has enabled clients to pursue and recover financial and other assets that have been illegally transferred by foreign entities and individuals into the United States and other countries. The Firm has established a team of attorneys and forensic accountants to represent foreign governments and international financial institutions to recover stolen assets. The Firm works closely with government agencies, the appropriate ministers, central bank officials, and law enforcement officials to develop litigation recovery plans and in the preparation of criminal charges against wrongdoers. The Firm also assists foreign governments who seek the extradition of wrongdoers located in the United States. In addition, the Firm has been involved in foreign legal actions and has utilized administrative, legislative, and judicial processes to enforce and collect on judgments against foreign governments.
