Monetizing Large Judgements and Arbitration Awards

April 24th, 2014 9:00 AM EST, 1:00 PM GMT

Presented by ACC's Litigation Committee and Kobre & Kim LLP

As the value of judgments and arbitration awards coming out of large-scale litigation continues to rise, so does the challenge of enforcing them. Sophisticated judgment debtors today often hold assets protected in a variety of structures in offshore financial centers around the world, which create challenging roadblocks to efficient and prompt recovery that can only be overcome with the right tools and strategies.

In this webcast, a group of internationally based attorneys, experienced in enforcing high value judgments and recovering hidden assets will share their first-hand insights into the international judgment enforcement and asset recovery process. The panel discussion will include analysis of effective asset tracing, utilizing specific legal tools available in the U.S., Europe, Asia and offshore jurisdictions as well as the alternative fee structures available to minimize costs and risks.
