Judgment Enforcement

Prepare for and overcome the final obstacle in your dispute resolution journey by partnering with the most experienced multi-disciplinary enforcement team in the world.

Whether due to personal or business motivations, political dynamics or other factors, many parties and sovereigns resist paying monies owed on awards and judgments obtained in commercial and investment disputes. Proactive measures taken under the guidance of experienced enforcement professionals can help prevent moves that thwart recovery. 

Having devoted more than 30 years to studying and inhibiting asset-hiding activities, Omni Bridgeway is uniquely qualified to advise clients on how to safeguard collectability.

In instances where assets are already hidden or made otherwise inaccessible, successful asset tracing, seizure and repatriation requires discretion, precision and diplomacy. As the world’s most experienced judgment enforcement team, Omni Bridgeway has refined its investigative skills and built proprietary asset tracing databases. We are also experienced in negotiating with heads of state and government officials to deliver the assets that allow parties to successfully collect on their hard-won judgments and awards.

Protect your victory against diminution by partnering with the team that delivers across jurisdictions and in spite of impossible-seeming odds.
