U.S. Supreme Court Rules on Use of Section 1782 in Support of Arbitration Proceedings
In a unanimous decision, the U.S. Supreme Court held that two arbitration tribunals—one private and one investor-state—did not constitute “foreign or international tribunal[s]” under 28 U.S.C. § 1782. The statute is widely used by litigants to obtain discovery “for use in a proceeding in a foreign or international tribunal.” The decision came after years with a split among the Courts of Appeals on the issue, particularly in the area of international private arbitration.

How helpful is it for Sequor Law to have an in-house investigator?

In-house investigation capabilities are very beneficial to Sequor Law and its clients for multiple reasons:
  • We are able to obtain information more readily than other firms that have to employ investigators to conduct public record searches;
  • We are able to obtain records in multiple offshore jurisdictions known to be used to conceal the beneficial owners of assets;
  • We are able to not only identify assets but also identify any legal impediments to seizing those assets and incorporating this information to develop our legal strategy;
  • We are able to identify connections that may be overlooked by other firms given that we have both the legal and investigative capabilities in-house and are in constant communication regarding our cases.

What is your role when it comes to domestic and international asset tracing and recovery investigations?

At Sequor Law, I serve a dual role as an attorney and an investigator. Thus, I not only oversee and/or conduct asset tracing and recovery investigations, I also litigate judgment and arbitral award enforcement cases that require asset tracing and recovery. In my capacity as an investigator, I conduct certain investigations in-house, as well as coordinate and manage investigations conducted by third-party firms we may use to obtain information in both domestic and foreign jurisdictions.
