Focused on the end game before the battle begins

High-Stakes Litigation

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.

Foreign Judgments,
Arbitrations &
1782 Actions in the U.S.

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.

Court Appointed Receiver

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.
