Hendrik Milne is highly recommended thanks to his 40 years of experience in international fraud matters, asset freezing and recovery proceedings.
Hendrik Milne was born in India and raised in England, where he became a barrister in 1977. He thereafter re-qualified in Florida, where he was admitted to the bar in 1981. After a decade with Squire, Sanders & Dempsey (now Squire Patton Boggs) he left his position as head of the firm's international litigation and arbitration section to help found Aballi Milne Kalil, a Miami-based international legal boutique, in 1993. Mr Milne's own focus at AMK is on dispute resolution with a heavy emphasis on international frauds, asset freezes and recoveries.
Mr Milne routinely works with lawyers from around the world, often supervising multi-country cases. He is currently the head of an international legal team pursuing damages flowing from the multibillion-dollar financial collapse of the Brazilian oil company OGX. In that context, his team has successfully obtained in ancillary proceedings in the Cayman Islands what is believed to be the world's first pre-judgment treble-damages worldwide freezing order, and a complementary pre-judgment injunction restraining future fraudulent transfers – also one of the first of its type – in the substantive jurisdiction, Florida.
Mr Milne has tried cases to judges and juries and briefed and argued appeals in many state and federal courts across the US and has dozens of reported cases to his credit, many of them creating new law. He has earned an AV rating, Martindale-Hubbell's highest accolade, for his professional skills and his ethics, and the firm as a whole is listed in MartindaleHubbell's Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers.
