Monfrini Bitton Klein
Based in Geneva but borderless in its reach, Monfrini Bitton Klein is an internationally recognised, conflict-free litigation boutique focusing on asset recovery, anti-corruption investigations, business crime and offshore litigation.
Successor to the law firm founded by Enrico Monfrini in 1978, the firm has since the late 1990s gained international renown for conducting and coordinating multi-jurisdictional asset recovery proceedings on behalf of foreign governments in grand corruption cases, liquidators of foreign insolvencies, and defrauded individuals or companies, resulting in the recovery of more than US$2 billion in damages and crime proceeds.
Monfrini Bitton Klein is also preeminent in offshore civil litigation and uses its asset recovery skills to enforce foreign judgments, arbitral awards and insolvency orders, obtain evidence and freeze orders in support of foreign proceedings, and trace and recover assets concealed in Switzerland or abroad for claimants in commercial, matrimonial and probate disputes.
The firm is recognised for its strength in asset recovery and business crime by Chambers and Who’s Who Legal.
Monfrini Bitton Klein’s lawyers bring to their clients their experience gained in Switzerland and abroad as litigator, public prosecutor or banker. They have extensive understanding of working in a multicultural environment and speak French, English, Spanish, Portuguese, German, Italian and Dutch.
The firm has access to hundreds of internationally renowned specialised correspondent lawyers and other litigation professionals, such as private investigators, forensic accountants, insolvency practitioners and litigation funders around the world. It is Switzerland’s representative of ICC FraudNet, the leading network of fraud and asset recovery lawyers.
