Global High-Stakes Experience

MVA has extensive experience conducting and managing litigation on a global scale. In addition, MVA has conducted large scale international arbitration proceedings and is familiar with the International Chamber of Commerce, the International Centre of Dispute Resolution and JAMS International, among others.

Multinational Fortune 100 companies also entrust us with their most complex, high-value regulatory defense matters. Our engagements frequently cross numerous borders—including those in Europe, Asia, Latin America and South America. By way of example, MVA serves as primary regulatory counsel for a major international bank in response to inquiries in the U.S., Europe, and Asia relating to LIBOR, other reference rates, and foreign exchange trading. Our team also has experience representing clients in matters involving foreign regulatory bodies including Banco Central de la República Argentina (the Central Bank of Argentina), the U.K. Financial Conduct Authority, the Monetary Authority of Singapore, and the Comissão de Valores Mobiliários (the Brazilian Securities Commission), to name a few. Our team is also highly proficient in leading thorough, credible and cost-efficient confidential, internal investigations - often times across agencies, countries and continents. We effectively lead these multinational defense and investigatory engagements by working closely with in-country counsel to capitalize on their knowledge and reduce costs, while simultaneously leveraging US style defense strategies.
