Argentine Bondholders Hire Boies to Fight Holdouts, Nacion Says
A group of 10 institutional investors that own Argentina’s restructured bonds has hired U.S. lawyer David Boies to advise them on how to prevent a case involving holders of the country’s defaulted debt triggering a fresh default by the South American country, newspaper La Nacion said, citing two people familiar with the matter.
The group is also considering collecting interest payments in France or Switzerland, beyond the reach of U.S. District Judge Thomas Griesa, who will decide how much Argentina should pay the so-called holdouts when it makes distributions due on the nation’s securities next month, the Buenos Aires-based newspaper said.
Boies didn’t immediately respond to two telephone calls and an e-mail seeking comment.
