They represented the trustee who is in-charged of recovering all the money. He has helped him recover $14 billion of stolen money around the world. He attributes his success to having an excellent team and speaking three languages, English, Spanish, and Italian. He is not just fluent in Spanish, but he practices in Spanish meetings and advocates orally and writes in Spanish, which makes him able to represent a lot of Latin-America clients who want a United States lawyer who comes with all the language and culture abilities.
Mr. Molina is happy with his stature and exposure with respect to international asset tracing and recovery, and he feels he is strong in international litigation. In the coming years, he wants to continue building his brand on international arbitration.
