Managing the Risks of Transatlantic Trade and Disputes
June 2013 – Partner Andy Frischknecht recently participated in the bi-annual conference jointly organized by the ABA Section of International Law and the International Section of the German Bar Association, which focused on how to navigate the risks and challenges associated with transatlantic deals and disputes. Andy’s panel considered the issue of personal jurisdiction and the ways that foreign companies can minimize their exposure to litigation in the United States. Andy’s analysis included a review of two recent United States Supreme Court opinions (and the Court’s grant of review in a third such case) that have focused on issues of personal jurisdiction.
Andy was part of the original team that established Chaffetz Lindsey in May 2009 and was promoted to partner in December 2012. He is a dual American and Swiss citizen and is fluent in English and German. Many of Andy’s cases involve European clients or disputes with a connection to Continental Europe.
