Runners up for Litigator of the Week include a team of attorneys from Foley Hoag for their win on behalf of Greece in a fight over the ownership of an 8th century B.C. bronze horse sculpture.

Foley Hoag’s Andrew Schwartz and Constantinos Salonidis along with Leila Amineddoleh of Amineddoleh & Associates LLC convinced the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit to reverse the district court decision in a fight with Sotheby’s over the sculpture. Greece’s Ministry of Culture and Sports informed Sotheby’s that according to Greece’s patrimony laws, the sculpture is the property of the Greek state, appears to have been illegally removed from Greek territory, and should be returned to Greece rather than sold at auction.
