Professional Biography

WWL Ranking: Recommended

WWL says

The "brilliant" Emmanuel Kaspereit is resoundingly endorsed by market commentators as a leading specialist in cross-border asset tracing in fraud proceedings.


Emmanuel Kaspereit is a French avocat and a partner of Archipel in Paris, specialising in cross-border enforcement and asset recovery.

He focuses on complex projects: multi-jurisdictional proceedings, high-value stakes, interim measures, evidentiary orders, asset tracing, and enforcement of foreign judgments and arbitral awards. He plans and performs global recovery in multi-million and multi-billion claims against sophisticated fraudsters and sovereign state entities, working as lead counsel or acting as specialist advisor. He has experience in many European, African and offshore jurisdictions, where he works with Archipel’s correspondents to enforce foreign decisions and recover assets.

International clients come to Emmanuel when they require expertise in cross-border debt recovery, especially when they are facing fraudsters, defaulting state entities and unwilling foreign debtors. Recent examples include the attachment of an aircraft to force the fast settlement of a debt, and interim measures to enforce a foreign Worldwide Freezing Order and prevent a fraudster from dispersing assets. Emmanuel also defends victims of judgment fraud who want to resist global enforcement and execution.

Emmanuel is known for bringing creative solutions to cross-border issues. He succeeded in changing case law on the enforcement of awards and judgments against sovereign states, and recently devised and won search orders that had been unprecedented under French law. He is particularly adept at coordinating common law and civil law instruments to win recovery for his clients.  

Archipel is a boutique law firm serving the cross-border needs of corporate and private clients. Its offices are in Paris and Geneva.
