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.

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.
