Edward H Davis, Jr, a founding shareholder of Sequor Law in Miami, heads the firm's asset recovery and financial fraud group, which represents victims of serious fraud and grand corruption including governments, corporations, insolvency practitioners and individuals by investigating and prosecuting civil fraud and asset recovery actions. The group has pursued assets in the Caribbean, Asia, Europe, Latin America and North America, including numerous so-called secrecy havens. He and his firm have helped to develop and expand various creative discovery and asset seizure methodologies to obtain recoveries for clients. He has both led and worked collaboratively on various civil asset recovery teams – another concept he helped pioneer – on cross-border asset recovery engagements. He has championed and coordinated asset recovery efforts between civil and criminal systems as a means to penetrate and defeat complex opaque asset-hiding structures used by fraudsters. Davis was recently recognized by Latinvex as one of “Latin America’s top 100 lawyers” in 2022 for his efforts in this practice area.
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. "In the US asset tracing world, he is an icon," enthuses a lawyer. An impressed client states: "Davis has a very strong level of sophistication and commercial awareness regarding asset recovery at an international level."
