Jonathan Schaffer-Goddard Speaks on Managing and Gathering Evidence in Cross-Border Litigation Panel at The Commercial Bar Association North American and Offshore Meeting


New York—Holwell Shuster & Goldberg LLP associate Jonathan Schaffer-Goddard spoke on a panel titled “Managing and Gathering Evidence in Cross-Border Litigation” hosted by The Commercial Bar Association at its North American and Offshore Meeting on June 1 in Boston. 

With cross-border discovery a key issue in many arbitrations, and §1782 no longer available to parties, Jonathan shared his thoughts on Section 44 of the Arbitration Act 1996, which provides for similar but more limited powers to compel evidence in England in support of arbitrations across the world. In doing so Jonathan discussed potential reform of Section 44, and how Section 44 could provide a model for any legislative revival of §1782 in the United States.  

Jonathan spoke on the panel with Peter Banks, partner at Borden Ladner Gervais in Canada; Mark McNeill, partner at Quinn Emmanuel in New York; Bhavesh Patel, partner at Travers Thorp Alberga in the Cayman Islands; and James Purchas, barrister at 4 Pump Court Chambers in London.

Jonathan has particular experience in international litigation and arbitration involving high-value infrastructure, shipping, insurance, technology, and luxury assets disputes.
