    Benjamin Chew, a partner in the firm's Washington office, appeared in a Reuters news story on August 21, 2008 commenting on a lawsuit he filed on behalf of the International Monetary Fund's (IMF) oldest and one of its most respected economists, 94-year-old Jacques Polak. Mr. Polak is suing IMF for $6 million after he fell down a flight of stairs at an IMF conference held last year in his honor. Mr. Polak is claiming damages from IMF to cover medical costs and home care he and his wife have needed since the fall in November at the 8th Annual Jacques Polak Research Conference.
