Chaffetz Lindsey LLP

Chaffetz Lindsey LLP's New York-based arbitration team is 'building a stellar reputation' across commercial and investment disputes. Jointly led by David Lindsey and James Hosking (who is noted for 'providing first-class strategic and practical advice') the 30-person team includes litigation and arbitration lawyers with experience practicing at many of the world's largest law firms. Though the firm's work spans the globe, it is particularly well positioned to handle arbitration involving Latin American participants. A key figure in that space is Aníbal Sabater, who has expertise in arbitration across a number of industry sectors and spearheads the practice group's Spanish language offering. Sabater is currently acting for an investment house in parallel ICC proceedings against multiple South American entities. Also recommended is Yasmine Lahlou, 'an excellent lawyer', who, alongside firm co-founder Peter Chaffetz, represented Società Esecuzione Lavori Idraulici and a related company in ICC arbitration concerning the termination of a subcontract for works at a hydroelectric power plant in Guatemala. Gretta Walters and Erin Valentine were made counsels in the team.
