Focused on the end game before the battle begins
The Seiden Group successfully handles litigation matters to trial, including in all state and federal courts in the United States and assisting global counsel on foreign matters. The Seiden Group has successfully handled hundreds of civil cases through litigation resulting in large settlements and victories for our clients.
The complex undertaking of enforcing a judgment or a court order, or managing a distressed company, especially in foreign jurisdictions, is a unique endeavor that requires specialization and experience. Robert Seiden has been recognized globally for his expertise in working as a court-appointed receiver in over 30 cases (in Federal and State Courts) to enforce judgments and court orders in the U.S. and abroad, including in China and to manage companies in distress or for purposes of court supervision involving a dispute.
The Seiden Group represents investors when they are at risk of or have lost their investment from corporate malfeasance, misconduct, incompetence or other shareholder oppression. We file shareholder derivative cases, class action cases and secure equitable and monetary relief for investors of US and foreign companies.
The Seiden Group has the experience, skills, and contacts needed to locate stolen or hidden assets and lawfully repatriate them, anywhere around the world. We do so by utilizing a number of legal avenues to recognize and enforce any foreign judgments and arbitration awards within the United States. We then identify the current whereabouts of assets, and the mechanisms used to conceal them. This often entails use of 28 USC 1782 of the U.S. Federal Code that enables powerful discovery to aid foreign proceedings.
The Seiden Group counsels individuals and corporations on compliance with the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC)and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). We help our clients secure the proper licenses to engage in sensitive transactions that are otherwise prohibited by OFAC. In high-profile cases of changed circumstances, The Seiden Group will provide clients with solutions to effect their removal from the Specially Designated National List pursuant to the OFAC sanctions programs.
The Seiden Group works with our team of asset tracers to identify assets so that our legal team can lock them down and monetize them for our clients. For example, The Seiden Group has identified and secured multimillion dollar apartments in Manhattan, New York for large judgments, as well as bank accounts in the U.S. and overseas
