Jef Klazen Explores Special Problems in Cross-Border Judgment Enforcement During Asset Recovery Americas Conference
November 28, 2022
Engaging in high-stakes litigation, investigation and enforcement of judgments and awards in the U.S. and Latin America is never easy, but there are challenging situations where even the most seasoned practitioners must think outside the box to deliver for their clients. Kobre & Kim’s Jef Klazen, who focuses on international asset recovery and judgment enforcement, shares some insights at the Asset Recovery Americas conference in New York on a panel at 12:30 pm local time, December 2, 2022.
During the panel discussion, “Special Problems in Cross-Border Investigations and Enforcement War Stories,” Mr. Klazen will explore a range of issues, including the possibility of conducting asset discovery under seal; freezing assets using New York restraining notices and civil-law conservatory arrests; and creative uses of applications for contempt orders, such as seeking to impose liability in the judgment amount on a third party or seeking imprisonment of the debtor.
Joining Mr. Klazen are Daniel Barton, managing director at Alvarez & Marsal; Guilherme Fontes Bechara, partner at Demarest; and Jonathan Halpern, partner at Holland & Knight.
