International Arbitration & Cross-border Issues

Worldwide Reach

McKasson & Klein represents clients in cross-border disputes and international arbitrations.

The firm regularly works with foreign clients and their lawyers to obtain evidence (documents and deposition testimony) in the U.S. for use in foreign proceedings, such as litigation and arbitrations, through the U.S. discovery process. This is a key weapon for foreign counsel where they can take advantage of the broad US style discovery rules for use in their own jurisdictions.

The firm regularly conducts asset searches throughout the U.S. and conducts legal proceedings to enforce international arbitration awards in the U.S. under the New York Convention, or to domesticate a foreign judgment and in the US and then enforce it against local assets of the target defendant.

We also handle choice of law issues and anti-suit injunctions, and have appeared as expert witnesses on general US and California law in foreign proceedings.
