Represented Nexters, Inc., an international game development company, after it was suspended from trading by Nasdaq in connection with the Russia-Ukraine sanctions; successfully had the suspension lifted, making Nexters the only company out of eight to have the trading halt lifted, after reviewing OFAC and SEC regulations and implementing corporate governance changes as requested by Nasdaq, including changes in the composition of Nexters’ board, detailed due diligence work on the company’s shareholders, and the elimination of all investments and employment in Russia.
Represented AEG Fuels in securing a remarkable resolution within 136 days of filing a complaint against the Arab Republic of Egypt and the Egyptian Air Force, blocking more than $3.1 million from one of Egypt’s bank accounts in the U.S. The motion included a detailed analysis of the relevant sections of the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act, and AEG’s general terms and conditions were changed to add a waiver of sovereign immunity as to pre-judgment attachment/garnishment. Shortly after being served with the garnishee’s answer, the Egyptian government contacted AEG and fully resolved the litigation and paid the debt in full.
