International Practice

Dennis Boyle and Blerina Jasari have substantial experience in the field of international law.  At Boyle and Jasari, International legal practice involves:

  • International Criminal Law: The defense of foreign nationals accused of crimes in the United States or of U.S. nationals charges with crimes in foreign countries. International criminal law is a complex area of the law because of the need to investigate activities in more than one country with overlapping jurisdictions and different prosecution authorities, frequently with different and conflicting interests.  There are also frequently cultural issues that arise in these cases.
  • International Investment Arbitration and Litigation: As the world becomes more interconnected, there are more and more people involved in transnational investments. Unfortunately, there are unscrupulous people and incompetent investment advisers in the United States and elsewhere in the world.  For individual and institutional investors who have lost money due to investor fraud or misconduct, arbitrations using FINRA processes are frequently the avenue for recovery of losses.  For those who invest in jurisdictions other than the United States, recovery of any loss will usually depend upon the choice of law and the forum for dispute resolution identified in the investment agreement.  Frequently, the International Court of Arbitration (part of the International Chamber of Commerce) or some other arbitration will be identified in the agreement.
  • International Commercial Arbitration and Litigation: Commercial litigation and arbitration involves the resolution of disputes that arise in a business context, frequently the sale of goods or services. When disputes arise, you need an attorney who understands both contract law and the impact foreign laws of international treaties might have on the resolution of the dispute.  Sometimes, these agreements will involve fraud or misrepresentation.  We understand how these issues arise and how best to resolve them.
  • War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity: There is a treaty referred to as the Rome Statute that created the International Criminal Court and provides for the prosecution of “war criminals”.  These cases arise in conflict zones where the Court exercises jurisdiction.  The concept of war crimes and crimes against humanity on an international level began with the prosecution of German and Japanese leaders after World War II.  Since that time, the United Nations Security Council has enacted various resolutions creating ad hoc tribunals like the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ITCY).  There are also other international courts that hear cases in certain geographic areas.  Blerina Jasari has worked for the Prosecutor’s Office at the ICTY and has studied war crimes and crimes against humanity.  Dennis Boyle is admitted to practice before the International Criminal Tribunal in the Hague and the Specialist Chamber for Kosovo.

International law is complex and interesting.  Regardless of the type of international practice that arises, we may be able to help.  Please give us a call.
