LAWFUEL – The Legal Newswire – Major Compendium Explores Best Practices, Creative Yet Practical Approaches to Cross-Border Disputes
October 1, 2007 (New York, NY) – Proskauer Rose LLP, an international law firm with more than 750 lawyers worldwide, is proud to announce the release of “Proskauer on International Litigation and Arbitration: Managing, Resolving, and Avoiding Cross-Border Business and Regulatory Disputes,” a practical reference work for businesses and practitioners that explores best practices and creative yet practical approaches to manage, resolve, and avoid controversies affecting multiple jurisdictions.
As a service to clients and practitioners worldwide, Proskauer is publishing the major, 28-chapter guide free in e-Book format. It is available for download at www.proskauerguide.com. Drawing on the firm’s long and extraordinary history in international practice, “Proskauer on International Litigation and Arbitration” is written by the firm’s lawyers on the most timely and important topics in international practice, from drafting international agreements to securing/avoiding jurisdiction to judgment enforcement/avoidance, from multi-jurisdictional regulatory proceedings or investigations to protecting witnesses, documents, privacy, and privileges, as well as several additional substantive areas.
“Despite the fact that the explosion in international business and regulatory disputes presents unique challenges, there does not exist for the client or practitioner any comprehensive treatment of the issues arising in international or cross-border litigations, arbitrations, and regulatory investigations or proceedings. We are filling that gap by providing this essential reference guide”, said Louis M. Solomon, Co-Chair of Proskauer’s Litigation Department and Editor-in-Chief of the Guide. “’Proskauer on International Litigation and Arbitration’ would be an extraordinary achievement even if it were limited to being a compendium of the current law in this dynamic and rapidly expanding area. But my colleagues in the Proskauer Litigation Department (www.proskauer.com/practice_areas/areas/044) and International Practice Group (www.proskauer.com/practice_areas/areas/135) have done so much more, producing a resolutely practical guide, emphasizing the concrete and strategic over the theoretical, the lore as well as the law, and the unique opportunities and challenges presented by international litigation and regulatory proceedings.”
Proskauer Rose is internationally recognized for its litigation practice, which is comprised of over 275 lawyers practicing from the firm’s offices in the U.S., Europe, and South America. Described by independent, third-party guides to the legal profession (based on client or peer feedback) as a “litigation powerhouse”, a “strategic and multi-talented group which undertakes the full spectrum of litigation”, and a “superlative litigation department”, where, “[f]irst and foremost, clients turn . . . for its much vaunted trial experience”, Proskauer’s Litigation Department practices in a wide range of forums around the world including federal and state courts, administrative and regulatory agencies, and national and international arbitral tribunals. In addition to such mainstays of a complex practice as securities, contract, and antitrust matters, Proskauer litigators have extensive experience in: intellectual property litigation including copyright, trademark, patent, Internet and computer law; bankruptcy and restructuring litigation; insurance coverage counseling and litigation; criminal and regulatory investigations and prosecutions; sports; entertainment; defamation and other publishing matters; employee movement, trade secrets, and unfair competition; ERISA; franchising; health care; lender liability; partnership disputes; real estate; and tax controversies.
