DRT Secures Successful Outcome for its Clients in Multi-Million Dollar Cross-Border PPE Fraud Case

Diaz Reus International Law Firm (“DRT”) has successfully secured dismissal on behalf of certain of its individual and corporate clients in a multi-million dollar cross-border dispute involving the supply of Covid-19 personal protective equipment (“PPE”). In the litigation, which is before the Southern District of New York, DRT represented parties from Australia, the United Kingdom and Sri Lanka.
The plaintiff, Remcoda, LLC, a New York-based importer of foodservice and safety equipment for the foodservice industry, alleged that DRT’s clients, as middlemen for the Malaysian supplier and the U.S. buyer, were liable for damages resulting from the supplier’s purported failure to meet its delivery obligations.
The DRT team, led by Partner, Ahmand R. Johnson, and associates Zhen Pan and Prince-Alex Iwu, successfully argued that the allegations as to its clients were insufficient to maintain fraud-based claims, as well as various claims based on alter-ego.
This case is one of numerous Covid-19 PPE fraud-related matters in which DRT has secured successful outcomes for its clients. DRT and, in particular, its cross-border dispute resolution practice, have earned a strong reputation for providing clients with cutting-edge legal solutions based on a nuanced understanding of international law and commerce.
This case is Remcoda, LLC v. Ridge Hill Trading (Pty) Ltd, et al., case number 1:21-cv-00979 before the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. Read the full legal opinion here.
