Eimer Stahl lawyers Nate Eimer and Lisa Meyer named by Law360 as top "Legal Lions" for their January 3, 2018 victory in the Third Circuit in Crystallex International Corp. v. Petroleos de Venezuela, S.A., et al.

January 4, 2018

Nate Eimer and Lisa Meyer of Eimer Stahl LLP were recognized by Law360 as Legal Lions for their January 3, 2018 victory in the Third Circuit on behalf of PDV Holding Inc., an indirect parent of Houston-based oil refiner CITGO Petroleum Corporation. The Third Circuit determined that the Canadian gold mining company Crystallex International Corporation could not bring a $2.2 billion claim against PDV Holding under the Delaware Uniform Fraudulent Transfer Act premised on the alleged debts of its parents, Petroleos de Venezuela, S.A., and the government of Venezuela, where PDV Holding itself was not a debtor to Crystallex. Eimer Stahl lawyers Dan Birk, Jake Hamann, and Greg Schweizer assisted with the appeal.
