Our attorneys resolve cross-border disputes, international arbitration and administrative appeals for Eastern European and Russian/Eurasian clients doing business in the United States. Our unique experience working in this part of the world also includes handling international arbitration outcome enforcement and asset recovery matters across the region. Our group includes native Russian and Ukrainian speakers who negotiate and resolve matters for individuals of high net-worth, mid-sized businesses and large companies doing business in the U.S.
AGG has over 3 decades of experience working with companies and individuals across Eastern Europe and Russia/Eurasia. Our team is best known for handling some of the most complex, high-stakes cross-border legal disputes through international arbitration. Additionally, we advise clients on legal issues related to international trade and financing transactions, joint ventures, international shipping and logistics, litigation, and mergers and acquisitions. With first-hand, intimate knowledge of local laws, customs and traditions, we are able to help Eastern Europeans and Russians/Eurasians take advantage of opportunities in the United States while overcoming common cross-border business obstacles. Our deep professional networks around the world provide clients critical expertise to draw upon when navigating the complexities of business and international law.
Our attorneys have a rich history serving in leadership positions related to international business in the United States. A rarity for American lawyers, we have attorneys on both the International Commercial Arbitration Court in Moscow as well as the International Commercial Arbitration Court at the Ukrainian Chamber of Commerce. Our team also includes a board member of the Ukranian Arbitration Association, co-chair of the ABA Section of International Law Russia/Eurasia Committee, former DOJ attorney stationed in a US embassy in the region, and a representative of the American Bar Association to the Department of State Advisory Committee on International Law. We serve as arbitrator and counsel in international arbitration proceedings administered by the International Centre for Dispute Resolution (ICDR) and the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC). Given our long-term stature in international business relations, an AGG attorney was chosen for the U.S. State Department delegation to The Hague and Moscow as a private sector advisor with respect to the operation of the Hague Evidence and Service Conventions. He later became the editor for the Practical Handbook on the Operation of the Hague Service Convention, published by the Hague Conference on Private International Law.
