What the team is known for A Miami-based boutique, Sequor Law acts both as expert local counsel and as a prominent player in many of the major fraud and embezzlement cases arising out of Latin America, the Caribbean and Florida. The firm is experienced in instructing and supervising non-US insolvency lawyers regarding foreign insolvency proceedings, as well as in filing Chapter 15 of the US Bankruptcy Code cases and managing asset recovery arising from them.

Strengths"They're really aggressive and they enjoy this, which is important. A lot of US law firms claim to do global stuff but they don't really. We'd always call Sequor if we had a matter in that part of world because we think that they do good work."

"They look south for most of their work, all those fun places. They're top of the game and one of the more reasonable firms in terms of bang for your buck. They're very insightful and hard-working."

Work highlights Acted as counsel for a company, All Factoring de Venezuela, that brought claims for fraud, civil theft and conspiracy against several individuals and companies involved in a financial transaction. A judgment of USD23 million was awarded, and Sequor is now obtaining post-judgment financial discovery to enforce said award.

Notable practitioners

Edward Davis often represents victims of fraud and corruption, including non-US fiduciaries in connection with Chapter 15 bankruptcy cases. He is a universally recognised figure and has developed a broad range of capabilities focused on the tracing and recovery of assets, particularly those stemming from large-scale frauds occurring in Latin America and the Caribbean. "He's unique in that he's a skilled lawyer but also a bulldog," says an interviewee; "he seems to have this ability to assess the situation very quickly and look down the road to understand where challenges are going to come up, not only in US law but also internationally." "Ed gets results, he knows his stuff, is strategic, assertive and acts as a strong advocate for his clients," adds another source.
