Winning a case is not the final step in litigation. Globalization has facilitated the transfer and movement of assets to all parts of the world with each international jurisdiction enforcing their local laws and regulations. Accordingly, in today’s environment sophisticated wrongdoers or debtors are deploying complex financial vehicles to conceal the location and source of (misappropriated) assets. Thus, it is difficult to identify assets located across multiple jurisdictions and, moreover, it is complicated to obtain a favorable decision and enforce the recovery claim in these international jurisdictions. We regularly assist
clients to trace and secure assets, as well as enforce judgments and arbitration awards, in Europe and abroad.
Our Firm has significant expertise in assisting both legal entities and individuals throughout the process of recovering misappropriated assets and/or debts located in Switzerland or in other jurisdictions. In this respect, and in view of our broad expertise in financial matters, we assist our clients, inter alia, in cases related to bankruptcy proceedings. We act in particular for clients, instigating or defending insolvency-related actions, but we also assist creditors in collecting their claims against insolvent debtors and cooperate with the relevant bodies. The firm’s activity extends to cross-border insolvencies as well as insolvencies involving specific commercial actors.
We have acted both as appointed liquidators, winding up the clients’ business from A to Z, and as creditor representatives, making sure that the creditors’ rights are sufficiently protected.
