Expertise in Tackling Foreign Sovereign Immunities Issues
The Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act (FSIA) itself is part of the U.S. Code. It governs all litigations brought against a foreign state or a subdivision or agency of a foreign state. The Act does not apply to individuals. As to them, American courts often apply common-law principles of immunity to determine whether the individual is immune from suit.
The FSIA itself is a complicated statute and whether immunity exists depends on the consideration of numerous factors. Levin & Associates has experience in this area of law.
