Yael Tobi represents businesses and individuals in a broad spectrum of civil and criminal litigation, including:

•  Complex Civil Litigation. Yael's practice encompasses a wide range of subject areas, including business and commercial disputes, entertainment law and intellectual property litigation, copyright and trademark disputes, securities fraud, real estate disputes, defamation cases, probate litigation, labor and employment, asset recovery and post-judgment collection.

•  White-Collar Criminal Defense. Yael has counseled and defended clients in connection with criminal investigations and charges involving fraud, securities violations, Ponzi schemes, money laundering, tax crimes, and more.

•  Civil and Criminal Forfeiture. Yael has developed a niche practice focused on forfeiture law. Current civil forfeiture statutes allow government entities to seize property without bringing criminal charges if they believe the property is connected to criminal activity. She has been able to address these constitutional issues and successfully obtain full recovery for her clients' assets seized by the government.

Yael also has significant experience handling disputes involving international parties. As a former professional tennis player, she spent her childhood traveling around the world, which gave her insight into and understanding of various cultures. Yael represents numerous foreign and domestic clients, including Fortune 500 corporations, public and private companies, law firms, and high-profile individuals in complex high-stakes matters. She has experience in state and federal courts, as well as arbitration proceedings, international service of process, and international proceedings involving U.S. issues and parties.
