"Let us realize the arc of the moral universe is long but it bends toward justice."
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Global Perspective

RJ Gaudet & Associates LLC has a global perspective that draws upon legal professionals from around the United states and, where needed, from around the world.  Mr. Gaudet has relationships with lawyers around the world due to his education at Stockholm University (LL.M. in European Union Law), his education at Oxford University (Dip.Th. and M.St.), and his volunteer work as co-chair of the American Bar Association SIL International Human Rights Committee.

The firm keeps an eye on legal developments in Europe and the United States and human rights around the world.  When the European Commission sought convergence among 27 Member States on issues of freedom, justice, and security as well as the private enforcement of competition law and consumer protection, the firm submitted comments to the European Commission.  Mr. Gaudet drafted comments and a speech given by a European NGO for submission to the European Commission on the topic of collective redress.

Mr. Gaudet, Mrs. Gaudet-Asmus, Mr. Federici, and Mrs. Detter also organized and spoke at a conference on collective redress that was hosted, in 2012, by Members of European Parliament in the European Parliament in Brussels in cooperation with the Pan-European Organisation of Personal Injury Lawyers, the American Bar Association Section of International Law, Maynooth University Department of Law, and other sponsoring organizations.

Effective representation requires professionals who speak native languages and have educations from diverse cultures.   The firm speaks, reads, and writes a dozen different languages.  With such diversity, the firm is capable of understanding foreign clients and assisting them with U.S. and U.K. legal matters and arbitration proceedings.  Our professionals come from around the world and have substantial experience with international proceedings in private and public international law.

The internet allows for a global legal practice that would not have been possible 10 years ago.  It is possible for the firm to file briefs electronically in courts across the United States while conducting research in other locations.  In short, globalization makes it possible for a single small firm to work on important matters in different jurisdictions.
