Jason Short represents high-net-worth individuals with global business interests in offensive and defensive strategies related to cross-border government investigations, regulatory enforcement actions and related civil litigation spanning the Americas, Asia, Europe and major offshore financial centers. He has a particular focus on matters involving asset forfeiture and confiscation proceedings, where he regularly performs asset stress tests, clean funds analyses and asset tracing and recovery initiatives, often with hundreds of millions of US dollars at stake.
Additionally, Mr. Short has experience representing clients that may be subject to primary or secondary sanctions imposed by U.S. regulatory agencies, including the Department of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control, as well as other non-U.S. agencies responsible for economic and trade sanctions. As part of these representations, Mr. Short regularly advises on the legal and financial impact such sanctions designations may have on both business and personal interests, including intrafamily wealth succession and corporate continuity.
Before joining Kobre & Kim, Mr. Short clerked for the Honorable Richard M. Berman of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. Earlier in his career, he practiced at Kaye Scholer LLP.
