Who’s Who Legal: Thought Leaders 2018 brings together the insight, expertise and wisdom of some of the world’s foremost lawyers in a single book.
Through interviews with the practitioners themselves, our Thought Leaders guide aims to shine a light on what makes these lawyers the apogee of the profession. They are worthy of special mention owing not only to their vast expertise and experience advising on some of the world’s most significant and cutting-edge legal matters, but also their ability to innovate, inspire, and go above and beyond to deliver for their clients.
Annette C Escobar, senior counsel at Sequor Law, focuses her practice on fraud, asset recovery, and international insolvency. She advises and has extensive experience representing international corporate and individual clients, including receivers, trustees, and others, in cases pending before state, federal, and appellate courts in the US. She also has experience in representing individuals and corporate entities in complex international business disputes arising from Latin American, Caribbean, and European operations, as well as enforcement of foreign judgments. She currently also counsels the Stanford International Bank liquidators in the second largest Ponzi scheme in history.
Ms Escobar, who has obtained a certification as a certified financial crime specialist, has been recognised as a “top lawyer” by South Florida Legal Guide. Ms Escobar also often writes and speaks on financial fraud, international bankruptcy, and asset recovery. She is a co-author of a monthly asset recovery in international insolvency column in the Global Restructuring Review; “Enforcement of Foreign Country Judgments in the United States”, written as a chapter in Asset Tracing and Recovery: the Fraudnet World Compendium (edited by B Klose, 2009); and “A Practical Guide to Enforcement of Foreign Country Money Judgments in the United States”, written as a chapter in International Litigation Strategies and Practices (published by the ABA section of international law, edited by B Legum 2005). She has spoken on these topics in various jurisdictions, including the United States, Italy, Colombia, and the British Virgin Islands.
WWL says: Annette Escobar impresses numerous nominees with her considerable experience and expertise handling financial fraud and asset recovery for corporate clients and financial institutions.
