December 2011 – Chaffetz Lindsey’s international arbitration practice continues to be recognized as “an established name on the Latin America scene”, according to the 2012 edition of Chambers Latin America: Latin America’s Leading Lawyers for Business.
The newly-released guide identifies Chaffetz Lindsey as a leader in “Latin America-wide” international arbitration and also singles out partners David Lindsey and James Hosking for mention. David has been ranked in the publication since its first edition.
The Chambers rankings are based on interviews with clients and other practitioners. The 2012 edition notes that “dedication and focus are naturally considered strengths” of Chaffetz Lindsey “but clients also cite proactivity and efficiency as major draws.”
Chaffetz Lindsey lawyers have been involved in international arbitration cases involving Latin America clients for more than 23 years. In the last year, Chaffetz Lindsey has handled eight international arbitrations involving Latin American clients. It is also currently representing Latin American clients in several U.S. litigations. The team was strengthened earlier this year by the addition of Spanish-speaking senior associate Jennifer Gorskie, who has spent much of her career representing Argentina in various matters while she was at the New York office of Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP.
