The challenge of international civil service litigation

The strict deadlines enforced upon international civil servants to appeal adverse decision often leave their legal counsels with little time for errors and even less time for conducting prompt and thorough legal research and drafting. For the practicing legal professional, who happens to be already hard-pressed for time, it is usually challenging to chase all the nuances of ever-changing internal Regulations and Rules of International Organisations, and adapt to the obscure jurisprudence of the international fora regulating their affairs.

Broaden your legal firm’s responsiveness and reach

This is where NOMOS Consulting comes into picture to help your legal firm out. With direct experience with the administrative culture and bureaucratic machinery driving International Organisations, in particular that of the United Nations Common System, NOMOS offers unique legal research and drafting services to assist attorneys and law firms in meeting strict deadlines or tackle the peculiar, unexpected requirements, which are common in the Law of the International Civil Service. This, while freeing your firm from the pecuniary and legal obligations which normally arise from hiring full-time in-house staff.

In particular, NOMOS is able to provide paralegal assistance, in research and drafting, to legal firms and attorneys providing representation to international civil servants before Internal Appeals Bodies (e.g. Joint Appeal Boards, Appeal Committees, Joint Advisory Appeal Boards, Joint Appeal Panels), as well as before the Administrative Tribunal of the International Labour Organization (“ILOAT“), the United Nations Dispute Tribunal (“UNDT“), the United Nations Appeals Tribunal (“UNAppT“), and other specialized tribunals, such as the World Bank Administrative Tribunal (“WBAT“).
