Our firm also assists US law firms which do not have a presence in Russia.

The firm has entered into a cooperation agreement with the Russian Attorneys Guild and can provide qualified legal representation throughout Russia.
- Successful representation of the Caribbean subsidiary of an international petroleum company in a multi-million dollar business interruption and property damage claim arising at a petrochemical project. Our field investigation revealed substantial performance deficiencies by the construction contractor in planning and execution, which created the conditions for a catastrophic crane accident. The contractual limitation-of-liability defenses were defeated and the matter was settled with our client receiving in excess of $20 million.
- Representation of a sub-contractor at a Florida ocean front condominium project. After a comprehensive investigation, differing site conditions were revealed, exonerating the sub-contractor from project delay claims and setting the ground work for a global settlement among all project participants.
