December 2012 – Peter Chaffetz was on the panel at the ICDR’s international arbitration conference in Sao Paulo entitled, “Alternative Dispute Resolution Options for Today’s Global Commercial Transactions.” Peter’s session featured a roundtable discussion of current U.S. developments, including the potential for discovery in aid of arbitration under 28 U.S. C. Section 1782, the enforcement of awards and judgments in the U.S,. and the current status of the ‘manifest disregard’ doctrine.
Peter is one of the founding partners of Chaffetz Lindsey. He is currently representing a Brazilian private equity firm in a loan-related dispute against one of the world’s largest hedge funds. The firm regularly represents clients based in Latin America or investing in the region, and was one of the sponsors of the conference.
