iLaw2019: The ILS Global Forum on International Law

The iLaw annual flagship conference will take place on Friday, February 22, 2019 at the JW Marriott Marquis in Miami. This year’s conference will feature programming on hot issues in international litigation, arbitration, and business transactions.

Partner, Sophia Rolle-Kapousouzoglou will be part of a talented group of panelists, where they will be discussing the latest developments relating to alter ego and veil piercing theories, as well as best practices when litigating these issues in the USA and abroad.

Alter Ego and Veil Piercing in the United States and Abroad

The district court in Delaware recently found that a state-owned enterprise was the sovereign state’s alter ego and allowed creditors of the sovereign state to reach the assets of its instrumentality. This is an important development for lawyers that help their clients recover value from defendants that attempt to hide or secrete their assets behind complex corporate structures. This panel will explore recent developments relating to alter ego and veil piercing theories. Panelists will also discuss whether such theories are available in other jurisdictions, including best practices and obstacles that U.S. lawyers should be aware of when litigating these issues abroad.
