Comprehensive International Dispute Resolution Services
Alternative and commercial disputes resolved through creative problem solving
Resolving disputes between nations and parties or between parties residing in or doing business in different countries can be highly complex. The legal procedures of each country differ, and international laws such as the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act, which provides the primary means to sue foreign sovereigns in the United States, often offer only a partial solution, if any.
At the Law Offices of Charles H. Camp, P.C., attorney Charles Camp has been resolving legal disputes for more than 30 years. Mr. Camp is a highly knowledgeable and experienced international attorney who has assisted foreign sovereigns, major corporations including foreign and domestic banks and commercial companies and individuals and dynastic families worldwide. The firm offers clients comprehensive international dispute resolution services with a special emphasis on recovering debts internationally, including assets owed to satisfy judgments and arbitral awards.
Types of international dispute resolution
Mr. Camp provides clients with the following personal and international commercial dispute resolution services:
- International litigation
- International arbitration
- International negotiation
The types of international dispute resolution procedures used depend on the type of dispute resolution chosen:
International litigation: The defendant must establish jurisdiction over a foreign defendant, which can be difficult, affect international service of process, request evidence including evidence of foreign bank accounts and present the evidence at trial before a judge (or jury). Once a judgment is obtained, the plaintiff must take steps to enforce the judgment, an area in which Mr. Camp has particular expertise. To learn more, view the international civil litigation page.
International arbitration: Arbitration is a type of alternative dispute resolution method where the parties to a dispute agree to arbitrate or operate under a contract that specifies that arbitration is the remedy. Disputes are heard outside of the courts, before one or more arbitrators. Parties agree to abide by the arbitrators’ decision.Arbitration is usually a more informal process than litigation, with the parties choosing the arbitrator and many of the procedural aspects. International arbitration is often faster and more efficient than international litigation.
International negotiation: In some cases, formal litigation or arbitration may not be necessary to resolve an international law dispute. Instead, Mr. Camp and his team use his dispute resolution skills to conduct informal negotiations between the parties to resolve a dispute or remedy an international contract breach.

Fully resolving an international dispute can be a very difficult legal procedure because of the number of parties and laws intertwined in the process and the difficulty of enforcing judgments and awards when they are actually obtained.

He does not hesitate to take on complicated legal matters, including locating and recovering significant hidden assets.
