Who's Who Legal Asset Recovery: Lawyers

With over 30 years of litigation experience, Donald Manasse represents victims and judicial administrators in international fraud cases with connections in Monaco, France and Italy. That decades-long experience has been recognised by clients who describe Mr Manasse as “very knowledgeable, accessible, reasonable and practical,” according to Chambers Global (2017).

Mr Manasse is ranked in Band 1 for corporate/commercial dispute resolution in Monaco by Chambers, which acknowledged his dual qualification in both French and US law, and ranked him in Band 2 for the corporate/commercial practice area in Monaco. His firm, Donald Manasse Law Offices, is also recognised as a “top-tier” firm by The Legal 500. He is the sole Monaco representative of ICC FraudNet, the world’s leading asset-recovery legal network.

Recently, Mr Manasse, who leads his firm’s asset recovery department, represented a foreign sovereign fund in recovering assets in Monaco.

Born and raised in Italy, and educated in the United States, he skilfully overcomes the challenges of cultural nuances associated with international prosecutions. He represents clients in courts across various jurisdictions including Monaco, where he acts with the assistance of a Monaco Avocat-Défenseur. His experience with international financial customs and practices, too, enhances his technique during criminal trial representations.

Since 1986, Donald Manasse Law Offices has advised corporations, law firms and high-net-worth individuals with transactions and litigation in the Côte d’Azur. The firm is considered a leader in the areas of litigation and dispute resolution, property development, corporate (commercial and M&A), private client (including cross-border matrimonial disputes), wealth management and taxation. It enjoys an established reputation in complex and high-profile litigation cases and has a substantial international bankruptcy, corruption, fraud and asset recovery practice.

WWL says: Donald Manasse is considered “an outstanding and determined practitioner” and “the go-to in Monaco” by interviewees.
