Litigation in the USA
Defending the client’s interests in the US litigation: we can get in on any stage of the process.
Elaboration and implementation of a customized defense strategy with multiple scenarios.
Legal representation of a client by US attorneys in US lawsuits and other legal issues.
We specialize in defending physical persons whose business and personal interests are under attack in their countries and who cannot defend themselves there, because of human rights violations and legal system abuse in the countries of their origin.
However, even if those persons are fleeing to the USA and other democratic countries from unlawful persecution in their homeland, quite often the persecution continues in the form of lawsuits and other adversary actions. As a rule of thumb, the more assets a person has, the more often he or she becomes a target of lawsuits in the USA and other countries.
For instance, those persons can face a US lawsuit, because the opposing party is trying to:
- execute a decision of the foreign court,
- initiate a new US lawsuit, or
- request important documents and information, or other type of legal assistance in relation to a physical person corporate entity.
Almost always such actions presuppose a court decision in the USA. But how can the US court obtain a personal jurisdiction over a foreign person? There are many reasons why it can happen. For instance:
- You are US citizen (even if you do not reside in the USA).
- You are US permanent resident (green card holder).
- You are residing or resided in the past in the USA.
- You are in the USA now (your type of visa does not matter).
- You have or had a business in the USA.
- You have or had assets in the USA (money, stocks, real estate etc.).
- In an agreement that you signed the USA court is mentioned as a place of litigation in case of a dispute.
- One of your company’s managers resides in the USA.
