Kevin Meehan represents international clients, including foreign states and state-owned enterprises, in high-stakes disputes in U.S. courts as well as in international arbitrations.
Mr. Meehan has extensive experience litigating novel and complex issues under the U.S. Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act (FSIA). He was a member of the Curtis team that successfully defended a state-owned enterprise in the first Supreme Court case to address the FSIA’s expropriation exception to sovereign immunity. Mr. Meehan was also part of the Curtis team that successfully represented a foreign state in a landmark case before the Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit that overturned a decades-old practice in the Southern District of New York permitting the automatic, ex parte enforcement of arbitral awards rendered by the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) against foreign states.
Mr. Meehan has also represented clients in arbitrations conducted under the auspices of ICSID, the American Arbitration Association (AAA), the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC) and the International Centre for Dispute Resolution (ICDR). He is also a member of the firm’s Economic Sanctions and Anti-Corruption Group, which advises clients on matters pertaining to economic sanction regimes, export controls and anti-corruption laws.
