Chambers recognizes LBKM for Asset Tracing & Recovery in 2023
Chambers Litigation Support 2023, a guide to leading litigation professionals, has again ranked Lewis Baach Kaufmann Middlemiss in its Global-Wide Asset Tracing & Recovery category.
One client source described LBKM’s as “a conflict-free, innovative and hard-hitting firm when needed, but subtle and under the radar when required. They are solution-oriented.” Chambers noted the firm’s “particularly strong networks in Latin America, the Middle East and the UK.”
This year, Chambers also ranked two LBKM partners, Eric Lewis and Adam Kaufmann, for their expertise in this area.
The Chambers guide notes Eric’s specialties in international litigation, arbitration and fraud and his representation of international liquidators, government bodies and trust beneficiaries on cross-border fraud and asset recovery matters. Client and industry sources told Chambers editors: “He has a great reputation in this area. He is extremely thoughtful.” “Eric is the smartest lawyer I know, with an ability to make things understandable and pragmatic. He is great to work with.”
Chambers describes Adam as “an experienced white-collar crime attorney, with strong expertise in asset tracing and recovery in complex commercial fraud matters” and notes that he is “particularly experienced on matters in Latin America.” Sources told Chambers editors: “Adam is excellent. He also understands quite well how to navigate in foreign jurisdictions, especially in Latin America.” “He is very aware of market players and client sensitivities and equally promotes other partners in the firm.”
