Our practice of international law emphasizes the litigation and arbitration of conflicts involving issues that span national borders. As the Gateway to the Americas many of the legal relationships connected to Miami involve international business transactions. International dispute resolution requires consideration of specific threshold issues relating to the determination of jurisdiction, venue, evidence gathering, and the application of the correct legal standards before the appropriate tribunal. Many international business disputes require the application of domestic law, including the application of forum non conveniens doctrine, international law concepts of comity, and international treaty law such the Hague Convention of the Taking of Evidence Abroad in Civil or Commercial Matters and the OAS International Convention on the Taking of Evidence Abroad. These issues can add complexity to legal proceedings or arbitrations before the substantive issues can ever be addressed by the tribunal.
Our experience in the area of international dispute resolution includes representations involving the resolution of transnational frauds, breaches of contract, and intentional business torts.
