Jason M. Short

Jason M. Short represents high net worth individuals with global business interests in matters related to cross-border government investigations, regulatory enforcement actions and related civil litigation spanning the Americas, Asia, Europe and major offshore financial centers.  He focuses on matters involving asset forfeiture and confiscation proceedings, where he regularly performs asset stress tests, clean funds analyses and asset tracing and recovery initiatives, often with hundreds of millions of U.S. dollars at stake.
