Amsterdam & Peroff deploys political advocacy where needed as part of overall legal strategy to resolve clients' needs. Political advocacy can be helpful as a means to encourage decision-makers in countries where the rule of law is weak to use their influence to depoliticise a case and allow the judicial system to function without political interference.
Equally, political advocacy may involve creating political pressure by foreign governments to help ensure fair treatment of a client's issue. The ability to integrate the legal and political dimensions is one of Amsterdam & Peroffs recognised strengths.
