Interview with Gary Osen of Osen LLC
10 Aug 2018

Tom Devlin interviews Gary Osen, a high profile attorney and expert on the US Anti-Terrorism Act.

Gary served as co-lead counsel in Wortham v. KarstadtQuelle AG, which The Wall Street Journal described as “one of the largest single family Holocaust claims ever.” Currently he is serving as co-lead counsel in four major terrorism financing cases pending in federal courts: Linde v. Arab Bank, plc, Strauss v. Crédit Lyonnais, S.A., Weiss v. National Westminster Bank, Plc and Julin v. Chiquita Brands International, Inc.

Gary has also successfully represented hundreds of Nazi victims in their pursuit of legal claims against the German government and private entities, and has been involved in a wide variety of high profile cases addressing unusual and challenging legal issues.

Mr. Osen has what The Washington Times described as “a penchant for tackling larger-than-life cases” and developing new and creative legal theories that challenge some of the world’s largest companies and most powerful governments. The New York Times has described him as “an internationally consulted legal authority on terror financing.”
