Amsterdam & Partners LLP provides international counsel to corporate and individual clients in politically charged environments.

In many frontier and emerging markets, judicial systems suffer from state interference and due process failures, requiring innovative and agile approaches to defend the client’s rights. Outcomes in these disputed venues are capable of destroying reputations before legal vindication is possible, while assets and opportunities can disappear even faster. Our firm works to tailor unique strategies for every situation, drawing from an expanded toolbox of political advocacy, lobbying, media relations, and other initiatives to complement the legal strategy.

Canadian Lawyer Magazine has described Robert Amsterdam as “one of the few lawyers in the world [effective at] taking on the state when the state starts acting like a criminal.”
