Description

Cross-border asset recovery is a complex process that involves various legal challenges that need to be addressed. Those who work on cross-border asset recovery efforts often face difficulties associated with jurisdiction, obtaining evidence, litigation funding, and securing international cooperation.

To successfully maneuver through intricate cross-border asset recovery scenarios, practitioners must stay abreast of the ever-evolving legal systems and regulations, as well as the civil, criminal, and administrative actions that can be used to identify, trace, and recover stolen assets, including cryptocurrencies and other digital assets. Practitioners might also be interested in third-party litigation funding and other initiatives to finance all or part of the asset recovery process.

Join distinguished international attorney Javier Coronado of Diaz Reus International Law Firm (DRT) as he explores some of the legal challenges associated with cross-border asset recovery. The speaker, among other things, will offer practical tips and helpful insights for navigating this ever-changing legal landscape.
