Marcus Green advises clients on judgment enforcement, international asset investigations and offshore recovery and related debtor-creditor litigation. He helps clients realize value from court judgments and arbitration awards in distressed circumstances, including where debtors have undertaken complex asset protection structuring and, in investor-state disputes, where sovereign immunity is implicated.

Mr. Green develops and implements comprehensive global asset-tracing and recovery plans on behalf of corporate, individual and government clients. These campaigns often involve coordinated investigations and litigation throughout the United States, Latin America, the Caribbean, Europe and Asia.

Mr. Green regularly consults with litigants and their trial teams at all phases of disputes to evaluate the risk-adjusted recovery outlook or settlement value for disputed claims, awards and judgments. He also advises parties who may wish to buy or sell an interest in a claim, judgment or award or explore third-party risk-sharing or funding arrangements.

Before joining Kobre & Kim, Mr. Green practiced with Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLP.
