Responsible for a number of important and groundbreaking decisions by the courts, our litigators represent clients in complex commercial disputes before U.S. federal and state courts, foreign and domestic arbitration tribunals, and regulatory agencies in the U.S. and in Europe. We also counsel and advise foreign clients on the jurisdictional reach of U.S. courts, the application abroad of U.S. civil and criminal laws, the application of U.S. federal and state discovery procedures to international disputes, settlement strategies, alternative dispute resolution mechanisms, and the recognition and enforcement of U.S. and foreign judgments under treaties and statutes. In addition to the resolution of complex civil litigation, Cadwalader's litigators defend domestic and foreign corporations, financial institutions, investment firms, and individuals under investigation by federal and state authorities and administrative agencies including, among others, the United States Department of Justice, the Securities and Exchange Commission, and the Internal Revenue Service.

Our litigators are experienced in the supervision and management of large, complex cases and frequently work with technical consultants, experts and other counsel to efficiently and effectively further the interests of our clients. We employ state-of-the-art technologies to help us organize and manage discovery and trial materials, design exhibits, and communicate with our clients.
