Title: “FINDING MONEY: INTERNATIONAL ASSET SEARCH AND RECOVERY METHODS FOR COLLECTING JUDGMENTS”
Dates/Times: June 27th, 2011, 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Description: Join Juval Aviv, President & CEO of Interfor , Inc., an international corporate intelligence and investigations firm as he discusses issues pertaining to the enforcement of judgments in and outside of the United States. In order to effectually enforce an obtained judgment, counsel must be familiar with certain methods and procedures that may be nontraditional or non-domestic – outside a lawyer’s usual problem-solving ‘tool box’. Such methods are especially apropos when enforcement of US judgments may be carried out overseas, where it is often easier for defendants to hide assets and/or make them unavailable through fraudulent conveyances to controlled trusts and nominees. A plaintiff with a reasonable expectation of a judgment for damages in the US can take steps in anticipation of enforcement of the judgment by obtaining an attachment of the defendant’s assets, which could include those assets kept in and outside of the United States. Many countries, in Europe and elsewhere, permit separate proceedings for these prejudgment attachments (or the functional equivalent thereof) to be brought in their courts for the purpose of holding the assets as security. Both the English Commonwealth jurisdictions and Switzerland afford creditors opportunities to make use of attachments and obtain information for the enforcement of judgments.
