Ted Posner Named Law360 MVP: International Trade

— Law360
Weil partner Ted Posner was named an MVP in International Trade by Law360 for his outstanding work on behalf of Bank of America unit Blue Ridge Investments LLC, which was assigned a $133M arbitration award against Argentina by CMS Gas Transmission Co., and his work in the Federal Circuit on behalf of Great American Insurance Co. to deny a bid from the U.S. government to collect prejudgment interest on a U.S. Court of International Trade ruling.

Mr. Posner, a former government lawyer and “seasoned Washington insider on international trade and investment matters,” noted that “there are quite a few legal challenges when facing a sovereign nation as an adversary.” Posner added that “you have the legal dimension, which can make litigating against a foreign sovereign more challenging, but you also have the political dimension, which sometimes can give you tools to draw upon which wouldn’t be there if you were dealing with a private litigant.”
