Attorney David H. Charlip is one of only 136 Civil Law Notaries. The Florida Civil Law Notary appointment is a program for Florida attorneys that practice international law and who have a need to authenticate an act or attest to validity of a document. A Florida Civil Law Notary can issue authentic acts and …thereby may authenticate or certify any document, transaction, event, condition or occurrence. The contents of an authentic act and matters incorporated therein shall be presumed to be correct. Any such authentic act is legally equivalent to the authentic acts of all civil law notaries in all jurisdictions outside the geographic borders of the United States. A Florida Civil Law Notary has international status and authority. If your business activities involve multi-jurisdictional contracts or international trading, Mr. Charlip’s status as a Florida Civil Law Notary can be of vital assistance in drafting and enforcing contracts and agreements with international application.
The International Law & Arbitration attorneys at Charlip Law Group, LC can also assist you gathering evidence in the United States to present in litigation pending or contemplated in foreign jurisdictions. 28 USC §1782 allows a foreign court or foreign litigant with contemplated or existing litigation abroad to bring suit in a United States federal district court in the United States to gather evidence in a civil matter or for criminal proceedings for which there is no charge entered. The evidence (i.e. witnesses or documents) must be located in the United States in the district where the suit is filed.
Seeking evidence under section 1782 may be preferable to proceeding under the Hague Convention on the Taking of Evidence Abroad in Civil and Commercial Matters. Moreover, applications under section 1782 may be made by any foreign court or litigant, even those in countries that are not Hague Convention signatories. Additionally, section 1782 can provide a real and significant benefit for the party seeking evidence because that statute may allow for the gathering of certain evidence that would not be available in the country where the litigation is pending.
Besides the wealth of trial and litigation experience, the International Law & Arbitration attorneys at Charlip Law Group, LC bring to the dispute resolution process, the familiarity such attorneys have with different languages, cultures and legal systems make them ideally suited to provide you with the effective and efficient representation you require to successfully handle your international business dispute.
