The Enforcement & Asset Recovery Landscape in 2020

On 4 December we were delighted to host an event titled ‘The Enforcement & Asset Recovery Landscape in 2020’ which considered what might be in store for the enforcement of judgments, arbitral awards and the recovery of assets in 2020 in light of political and economic developments.

Moderated by Wayne Barnes of Fulcrum Chambers, our expert panel featured Andrew Stafford QC of Kobre & Kim, Louisa Watt of Brown Rudnick, Victoria Mackay of Gryphon Strategies, Richard Lewis of Hogan Lovells and Harbour’s J-P Pitt.

Maurice MacSweeney, Director of Litigation Funding at Harbour said, “It was fantastic to welcome a full-house of lawyers, investigators, experts and funders from the enforcement community for a lively discussion.

The landscape for 2020 looks busy: recent case law indicates just how determined we need to be in pursuit of unsuccessful defendants who dissipate assets; we learned that there are more options than ever before for claimants to monetise their judgment or award; and shifting global political sands require lawyers to keep a close and continuing eye on prospects of recovery.

The event was a great example of how sharing knowledge and skills can help us all achieve justice for claimants.”
