Mutual legal assistance

In the last 20 years, the International Court of Justice has delivered a number of significant decisions involving the application and interpretation of treaties relating to mutual legal assistance. Equipped with a comprehensive understanding of this jurisprudence, Lindeborg advises clients seeking protection from the interference of States.

Such interference might concern (i) the taking of evidence, (ii) the taking of statements from suspects and/or witnesses, or (iii) the freezing and/or forfeiture of assets. In advising clients on these issues, Lindeborg brings an unrivalled depth of public international law knowledge to treaty interpretation and application. This knowledge often yields unique perspectives and creative solutions. Lindeborg has recently advised and acted for, among others, government ministers and prominent business figures.
