  • Continuing Legal Education (CLE) in 2016

    In April of 2016, Mr. Huf was honored to serve as Moderator of two different panel programs offered by the New York County Lawyers' Association (NYCLA).  The first program was a Continuing Legal Education (CLE) course concerning the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA/ the Act), the second offered Ethics Credit and concerned Attorney "Branding" & conforming with the Rules of Professional Responsibility.

    The CLE panel on the FCPA discussed the increasingly broad and robust enforcement of the Act, and the implications for Corporations that do business internationally, as well as its responsible officers and the potential for individual liability/ culpability.  The panelists not only discussed what to do in the event of an FCPA problem, but their thoughts on how to avoid such problems in the first place - now and in the future as the law evolves.

    The Branding panel provided an overview of marketing methods and the why and how of establishing a "Brand" - the "dos and the don'ts".  (Mr. Huf notes that he still has to establish a Youtube page for his firm, JHI!)  The panel also discussed how to plan and execute a marketing program that does not run afoul of the Rules of Professional Responsibility and agreed that, in addition to being every attorney's responsibility, being Ethical should, in fact, be a fundamental part of an attorney's Brand.

    The Rules of Professional Responsibility tend to follow changes in technology, and developing technologies are an important driver in the evolution of legal marketing programs.  Accordingly, the panel also discussed trends and the direction the Rules of Ethics might possibly take, including recent recommendations by NYCLA, as rule-makers chase after these rapidly-developing technologies and the ethical implications of their use.

    As Co-Chairman of NYCLA's Foreign & International Law Committee, Mr. Huf proudly notes that NYCLA constantly offers interesting, relevant and forward-looking CLE programs and other valuable forums for continued learning on a regular basis; and, states that consumers of such programs can look forward to the steady provision of additional thoughtful and cost-effective programs now and in the future.  For more information on NYCLA's CLE offerings, please visit www.nycla.org

    Mr. Huf will, of course, continue to advise friends and colleagues of CLE programs and other speaking engagements wherein he is a participant in 2017 as the new year approaches.
  • Observance of September 11 & Eid Al Adha Greetings

    This is one day of the year all of us set aside for remembering, but there is never a day when we forget.

    As with dates officially deemed "National Holidays", JHI's New York HQ Office - per annual Firm tradition - will be closed for business this Monday, September 12, in observance of the 15th anniversary of September 11, 2001.

    Just as JHI is proud to perform work that may make some small contribution to what, some day, may be the development of a broad, self-sustaining middle class in the Middle East, JHI is honored to be a witness to the resurgence of downtown Manhattan.  The Financial District's magnificent comeback is best symbolized by our neighboring Liberty Tower:


    Liberty Tower September 11 Never Forget Always Win Victory USA

    September 11 will be a day of remembrance and reflection for us all.  JHI will resume offering high-quality professional services on Tuesday, September 13.

    JHI also wishes our many friends in the Muslim world a happy Eid Al Adha holiday.  We would also like to advise clients and friends who do not observe this holiday to expect delays in certain services due to office closures - particularly banks and government offices - throughout the Middle East region during the holiday, which is scheduled to begin at sundown on Sunday, September 11.
  • Bankruptcy Protection -- in the UAE... ???

    In a somewhat pioneering step, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is close to finalizing an Insolvency Law modeled after Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Law.

    The devil will be in the details, but here is what we've heard thus far:

    Under the supervision of a UAE court, a distressed company that successfully files for such protection will be able to restructure its debt with outstanding creditors;

    The law may include some degree of decriminalization of issuing dishonored, or "bounced", checks (cheques, for our British friends); and,

    The overarching goal of this legislation is to improve the business environment by removing (or, at least, mitigating) some of the uncertainty of risk that may arise when investing in a country which may be rich with disposable income, but which is still "developing" - where the economy, laws and political system are still rapidly evolving.

    The extent to which such protections would be available to companies with some element of foreign ownership remains unclear.  However, if it is well done, this new Insolvency Law could prove to be a significant long-term development for the economy of the UAE, and (perhaps) the Gulf Cooperation Council region more generally.

    With the election of a new Federal National Council, one might anticipate final passage of the new Insolvency Law soon.  Perhaps.  Inshallah.  More to come...
