litigation and transactional work requires an array of skills. The
ability to speak foreign languages is a must, as is a healthy knowledge
of international treaties and conventions. It's also vitally important
to be comfortable within the culture of international law and business.
Alembik has worked for law firms in London and Paris where he practiced
international transactional and litigation law (in three languages).
Most notably, he worked on successful international litigation surrounding
the tragic drowning of U.S.S. Saratoga servicemen in Haifa harbor
during the first Gulf War. As a few other examples, he's also been
involved in international child custody disputes, the international
sale of Internet domain names and the defense of criminal prosecution
against foreign nationals.
experiences have left Mr. Alembik with an appreciation for international
business and legal culture that colors all of his international
work at the firm.
