We represent Chevron in a landmark case concerning Ecuador’s breaches of international law in relation to a fraudulent $9.5 billion judgment issued by the Ecuadorian courts against our client. Most recently, we helped secure a monumental award in the merits phase, with the tribunal finding that Ecuador violated its obligations under the US-Ecuador BIT and committed a denial of justice against Chevron. In so holding, the tribunal deemed the Ecuadorian judgment a product of unprecedented acts of fraud, corruption, and bribery. Among other relief, the tribunal ordered Ecuador to render the initial court judgment unenforceable and to make full reparation for its delicts. The proceedings are currently in the damages phase.
