International litigation

Within: International litigation

Baker & Hostetler LLP is ‘first rate’, according to one client, ‘the practice works well as part of an international team on cross-border cases’. Mark Cymrot in Washington DC leads practice, which has ‘real depth and breadth of knowledge in cross-border fraud and asset recovery’. Gonzalo Zeballos in New York is recommended for multi-jurisdictional fraud and asset recovery litigation as ‘someone you want on your side in any conflict; his knowledge of cross-border procedures between the US and the UK is unparalleled’. Alongside Oren Warshavsky (who is ‘a brilliant lawyer with deep insight’), Zeballos helped bring claims exceeding $1bn in value in Bermuda, Austria, France and other jurisdictions for Irving Pickard against a group of hedge funds implicated in the Bernie Madoff Ponzi scheme.
