International Litigation Strategies and Practice is a book that takes a "real world" approach to this topic, providing practical advice that can be readily implemented into the reader's practice.
Authored by the top practitioners in their respective fields, this book is a readily accessible resource for both the in-house practitioner who only occasionally encounters international disputes and also for the experienced practitioner who will benefit from this in-depth reference. No other text covers in detail the practical skills and strategies required for a practitioner to succeed in the distinctive practice area of international litigation.
This book is a thorough update on the ground-breaking prior edition. New chapters have been added that cover the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and the application of attorney-client privilege in the international sphere.
Part One discusses the essentials, including finding the right lawyer for the job overseas, communicating with foreign clients and lawyers, understanding the differences and similarities between civil law and common law systems, protecting yourself from falling into ethics traps, and introducing the U.S. legal system to your foreign clients.
Part Two addresses the strategic decisions and practice tools necessary to successfully initiate, defend, and conclude a transnational case. Issues covered include international mediation, when to sue (or counter-sue), selection of forum, provisional measures, defense strategies, anti-suit injunctions, obtaining evidence abroad, and enforcing foreign judgments in the U.S.
Part Three covers special problems and tribunals. This material introduces you to specialized international fora and problems so that you can assess whether they merit further evaluation.
Thirty-one seasoned contributors offer their first-hand insights to make this volume an essential resource for practitioners involved in any international litigation.
