Product description

A Check is Better than a Judgment! This Compelling Case Study of New World is a Quick Read, and a Primer on Best Practices, and Practical Guidance for Your Pending Matter.

Walk through the incredible success of the Paul Hastings team of attorneys in the lawsuit, New World TMT Limited v. PrediWave Corporation. In that case, the team obtained a $2.87 billion judgment, believed to be the largest judgment ever obtained by a Chinese firm in a U.S. Court. As a result, they learned the ins and outs of successfully enforcing a judgment throughout the United States and internationally, including in countries where defendants and judgment debtors choose to hide their assets. The New World enforcement proceedings are used as a case study in procedures, tactics and strategies available to enforce a judgment.
