U.S. Confers with Section
on Iranian Claims
The Section's Committee on Foreign Claims, under
the leadership of Chairman Lee R. Marks and Vice-
Chairman John F. Olson, has established an important
role 1,n zehalf of the organized bar in the implementa-
tion of  he agreements recently reached with Iran re-
garding U.S. claims. The agreements, which resulted
in the return of the 52 American hostages, if imple-
mented, will raise a number of technical and substan-
tive legal issues. Senior representatives of the U.S.
Government, including an Assistant Secretary- Desig-
nate of the Treasury, the Director of the Office of
Foreign Assets Control and its Chief Counsel, the Act-
ing Legal Adviser of the State Department and senior
Justice Department personnel, attended a meeting
February 1 with the Steering Group of the Section's
Committee on Foreign Claims to brief it on the agree-
ments and to confer on areas of implementation in
which the government would welcome suggestions from
the private bar through the Committee.
Following the meeting the Steering Group met to
organize the work of the Committee so as to meet the
most immediate needs first. Apart from advising senior
government personnel of specific problems that arise
under the agreements for particular claimants, the
most significant area where the agreements with Iran
require more detailed implementation is in the estab-
lishment of the International Claims Tribunal, which is
to decide U.S.-Iranian claims. The Committee expects
to confer actively with appropriate government officials
in the next weeks and months on issues that arise, and
any Section member having a particular problem or
wishing to offer particular suggestions is urged to get in
touch with the Committee Chairman, Lee R. Marks,
Esq., Ginsburg, Feldman, Weil & Bress, 1700 Pennsyl-
vania Avenue, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20006, or
Vice-Chairman John F. Olson, Esq., Gibson, Dunn &
Crutcher, 818 Connecticut Avenue, Suite 800, Wash-
ington, D.C. 20006.
