July 25, 2011 - PRLog -- Miami – Astigarraga Davis, a leading international law firm that has recovered billions of dollars worldwide on behalf of the victims of fraud, has signed on as a sponsor of the Third Annual IAAR Conference, slated for Nov. 17-18, 2011 at the Planet Hollywood Resort in Las Vegas, USA.

In addition to sponsorship and a presence at the conference -- which promises to be the largest ever held on the topic asset recovery – two principal members of the firm's asset recovery practice will share their vital knowledge with attendees during the comprehensive two-day program. Topics include such cutting edge sessions as "Osama bin Laden's Data Haul – The Asset Tracing Lessons It Teaches Through 'Analog' and Digital Investigations," "Third-Party Funding of Fraud and Matrimonial Asset Recovery Cases – Best Practices on Using It and Building Protections" and "Effective Interviewing and Interrogation Techniques That You Must Have to Win at Asset Tracing and Recovery." Full pane descriptions are available at

Ed Davis, a recognized expert and innovator in the field of asset recovery and founding shareholder at Astigarraga Davis, will impart his expansive knowledge as a speaker at the conference. A crusading force in the fight against corruption and financial crime, Davis has spoken at several IAAR conferences in past years on topics that included piercing offshore secrecy and maneuvering cases in civil and common law jurisdictions.

Joining Davis from the firm will be Arnoldo Lacayo, a veteran cross-border asset tracing specialist and Certified Specialist in Asset Recovery (CSAR). Lacayo spoke at the Second Annual IAAR Conference and taught the inaugural CSAR Exam Preparation Live Training Seminar. "We are lucky to have these two luminaries in the field speaking at our conference. Their involvement promises to be a crucial part of our success and add value for our attendees," said Patricia Valdes, IAAR Executive Director.

"Professionals like those at Astigarraga Davis understand the importance of asset recovery. They know that, given the choice, 99 out of 100 victims would rather get their money back than see the fraudster in prison," said Charles A. Intriago, president and founder of IAAR and a former federal prosecutor.

Like last year, the conference will also feature a live training seminar at the Planet Hollywood on Wednesday, Nov. 16. The CSAR credential is the world's only standard certification that tests for the unique, special skills required to win the endgame of financial fraud: asset recovery. Asset recovery practitioners certified in the field of asset recovery enjoy personal and professional benefits that help create outstanding careers. At the same time, the certifiable skills of the persons that hold the CSAR credential give comfort to their private and public-sector employers that the supremely important work of recovering assets is being handled by persons who meet minimum standards of competence, knowledge and skill.

Members of the press interested in learning more about IAAR, the CSAR credential or the Third Annual IAAR Conference, Nov. 17-18 at the Planet Hollywood Hotel in Las Vegas, USA, are encouraged to contact IAAR Executive Director Patricia Valdes at +1 786 517 2715 or by e-mail at
