Leonora Sagan is an English barrister with particular experience in international litigation involving allegations of fraud and misconduct. She represents high-net-worth individuals in civil and criminal asset forfeiture and asset protection actions, on matters involving trust assets, and international judgment and award enforcement projects.

Though Ms. Sagan has appeared as counsel in the English Courts, including the Supreme Court, and in domestic and international arbitrations and related appeals, her cases invariably involve cross-border coordination. She has acted as counsel in matters involving jurisdictions across Europe, Asia, the U.S. and Latin America, including Liechtenstein, Brazil, Russia and New Zealand.

Prior to joining Kobre & Kim, Ms. Sagan practiced at 20 Essex Street Chambers in London. She graduated from the University of Oxford with double-first class honors and has a Masters in law from Harvard Law School.
