A trial lawyer with a particular emphasis on international issues, Randell Wood has brought significant product liability actions on behalf of injured consumers against foreign corporations, negotiated international prisoner exchanges between countries, and been called upon to represent foreign nations before United States courts and tribunals.
His cases are often controversial, and have included litigation involving international financial frauds, federal criminal conspiracy trials, and compliance with anti-terrorism financial regulations and United Nation resolutions. He has been asked by nations to assist in cross-border, multi-jurisdictional asset recovery, and repatriating of the proceeds of corruption, including use of the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC). Early in his practice he worked as a prosecutor for the City of Springfield and served at judicial appointment as the special prosecutor for the 39th Judicial Circuit.
In addition to his advocacy work, Randell Wood has lectured and authored articles on product liability, international relations, 4th amendment rights, ethics, and criminal practice. When not practicing law he enjoys restoring classic automobiles and is an avid reader of fiction.
