León Cosgrove

INTERNATIONAL DISPUTE RESOLUTION

León Cosgrove’s lawyers have extensive experience with international dispute resolution, including cross-border business litigation in U.S. courts as well as commercial disputes adjudicated through arbitral fora such as the ICC, ICDR, AAA, and ICSID.

Having worked on a variety of high-profile international disputes, the firm’s lawyers are adept at navigating the complex procedural issues posed by international litigation in U.S. courts.  These issues include personal jurisdiction, international asset-tracing, choice-of-law/forum selection/forum non conveniens, international service of process and discovery, foreign blocking statutes, the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act, the extraterritorial application of U.S. law, foreign anti-suit injunctions, and judgment enforcement.

Additionally, the firm’s lawyers have expertise in utilizing domestic statutes to assist in foreign litigation before international tribunals.  These tools include the use of 28 U.S.C. § 1782 to assist foreign entities in obtaining discovery within the United States for use in litigation before a foreign tribunal, the domestication and enforcement of foreign judgments against U.S.-based assets, and the initiation of U.S.-based parallel proceedings to supplement litigation abroad.

Because it is lean and unleveraged, León Cosgrove is able to prevail in international disputes while limiting costs that might otherwise escalate as a result of the procedural challenges posed by cross border litigation and arbitration.
