April 2013 – Chaffetz Lindsey Counsel Jennifer Gorskie recently participated in a panel at the IBA Litigation Forum in Istanbul that discussed the most common causes of Board related disputes in private and public companies around the world. While in Istanbul, Jennifer also spoke at a seminar hosted by Mehmet Gun & Partners, which looked at the challenges faced by Turkish companies doing business abroad, including the issues associated with the enforcement of foreign judgments and arbitral awards in New York. Recent law has expanded the ability of judgment creditors to reach assets outside the United States, creating opportunities for foreign creditors and risks for judgment debtors.
September 2012 – Chaffetz Lindsey Counsel, Andy Frischknecht, joined a panel chaired by Lord Justice Toulson on “Long arms and sharp elbows: recent developments in international commercial dispute resolution” in London on September 27, 2012. The panel organized by 4 New Square Chambers looked at the future of international commercial dispute resolution and those jurisdictions that are well positioned as forums for resolving cross-border disputes and why.
Andy considered recent New York precedent that has significantly expanded the extra-territorial reach of New York’s pre and post judgment enforcement statutes, with potentially far-reaching implications for parties with assets abroad.
Andy has been with Chaffetz Lindsey since its founding in May 2009. A dual Swiss-American citizen, Andy worked as an Associate in the New York office of Clifford Chance for over three years, and was with Hughes Hubbard Reed for over three years prior to that.
