A loss occurs. Misconduct is involved. What are the first decisions to be made for an institution or company to consider pursuing a claim?
In this program, attorney Eugene Becker from Becker Law, and Miller Thomson partner Douglas Best, discuss what is needed to pursue an international asset claim. The program begins by discussing uncontroversial steps that should be taken along with how to develop a well thought out strategy with an Asset Discovery and Asset Recovery focus. Next, Mr. Becker and Mr. Best explain and differentiate between the options that are available in Asset Discovery and Asset Recovery. The program concludes with major claim misconceptions and how to overcome these complexities.
I. Understand the prevailing issues where a loss occurs in a potentially multi-jurisdictional situation
