Zuber Lawler & Del Duca Obtains Second Circuit Victory for Tanzanian Client

January 6, 2015

Our New York partner Chris Provenzano prevailed in an appeal in the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit on behalf of his client VIP Engineering and Marketing Limited, a Tanzanian company, against Standard Chartered Bank. Standard Chartered Bank had appealed from an order by the District Court directing it to litigate the matter in Tanzania. The dispute involves (among other things) the ownership and financing of a power plant in Dar es Salaam, and is of the utmost political importance in Tanzania. Chris has also been assisting VIP in related litigation in England and the Netherlands. Chris looks forward to traveling to Tanzania to assist Tanzanian counsel in trying the matter in 2015.
