Litigation partners Martin Flumenbaum and Brad Karp's Second Circuit Review column appeared in the May 27 issue of the New York Law Journal. The article, "Defense Attorneys May Bring Third-Party Claim to Forfeited Property," discusses United States v. Watts, in which the court reversed the district court's dismissal of a petition by the lawyers for a criminal defendant who asserted a third-party interest in forfeited property, based on a pre-trial assignment of the property in exchange for legal services. Litigation associate Priyanka Timblo assisted in the preparation of this article.
