2023 Chambers USA Recognizes Chaffetz Lindsey’s International Arbitration and Enforcement Team

Where Advocacy Meets Business

June 2023—The newly released 2023 Chambers USA Guide comes with high praise for Chaffetz Lindsey’s International Arbitration and Enforcement team.

In a first, Andy Frischknecht has earned the highly esteemed Band 1 recognition in the International Arbitration: Enforcement rankings. Andy has led or co-led most of the firm’s major award and enforcement engagements for over a decade. This marks the second year the firm overall has been recognized for its nationwide specialized practice in award and judgment enforcement.

In addition, the firm’s international arbitration team continues to be ranked in “International Arbitration: The Elite,” as one of the top eight arbitration practices nationwide—and the only New York-based boutique. For the first time, partner Gretta Walters receives personal mention for her international arbitration expertise. With all six of its core international arbitration partners individually recognized, Chaffetz Lindsey has more ranked New York lawyers than any other firm.

A source close to the firm noted, that “The Chaffetz Lindsey team has been absolutely outstanding. We’ve felt the strength of their team on every step of the collaboration – they are excellent, very responsive and open.” Another commented that the firm has a “strong arbitration team, with attorneys from different jurisdictions and special focus on the client needs. The team is excellent and the partners are very well prepared.”

Anibal Sabater, Caline Mouawad, James Hosking, Yasmine Lahlou and Gretta Walters have all been recognized for their work as Counsel in International Arbitration (Nationwide).

Anibal Sabater, David Lindsey and James Hosking have also been named among the top Arbitrators in the US.

He is the type of guy who’s great at very difficult cases – he’s like a brain surgeon.” His “secret sauce is that he has an even-handed approach.
