Axelrod Firm Partner Lisa Savitt Contacted by Bloomberg Law for Opinion About Pending Supreme Court Case

When a court may exert personal jurisdiction over a company has been the source of much interest in the last few years. While the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent decisions on general jurisdiction have answered most of the questions about when there is general jurisdiction, the waters are still very muddy on when a court may exert specific jurisdiction over a company. Two cases involving Ford Motor Company could be determinative and garnered much interest when writs of certiorari were filed by Ford with the U.S. Supreme Court.

Lisa Savitt has written and presented extensively on the issue of personal jurisdiction. She was contacted by Bloomberg Law and gave an interview about the pending Ford cases and what they could mean if the Supreme Court accepted certiorari to hear the cases. The interview was included in a January 9, 2020 article (Read the Full Article). Certiorari was accepted in both Ford cases but oral argument which had been scheduled for April 27 has been postponed due to the COVID-19 virus.

At The NAMWOLF Annual Meeting

At the NAMWOLF Annual Meeting, The Axelrod Firm collected 68 signed book plates, to be inserted into coloring books we purchased to send to Colores United in Deming, New Mexico for #immigrants separated from family members at the border.

We asked the attorneys who visited our booth to write a short note with their first names and the cities where they’re from so the children who received the books would see that lawyers around the country care for them!

It’s part of our “Somos Todos Familia” (We are all family) campaign.

Lisa discussed key items to incorporate into a contract such as an indemnification provision. She also discussed other contractual clauses necessary to include in deal documents to protect companies in case a deal goes wrong.
