“The Complications of Attaching Assets in the US in Aid of an Arbitral Award,” Dispute Resolution International

In this article, Jenner & Block Partners Elizabeth A. Edmondson and Richard F. Ziegler examine the procedural complexities of securing assets in the United States for an anticipated arbitration award or foreign court judgment.  The authors explain that claimants in international arbitrations may find themselves seeking to freeze or otherwise secure a respondent’s assets in anticipation of the final outcome of the case. They outline the process for prejudgment attachment of assets in one state where foreign parties often have assets: New York.
