Short Biography

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. Additionally, Jason has experience representing clients that may be subject to primary or secondary sanctions imposed by U.S. regulatory agencies, including the Department of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control, as well as other non-U.S. agencies responsible for economic and trade sanctions. Jason regularly advises on the legal and financial impact such sanctions designations may have on both business and personal interests, including intrafamily wealth succession and corporate continuity.
