We were one of the first international law firms to enter the South Florida market. The lawyers in our Miami office practice throughout Florida and serve as the principal connection to our Latin America practice.

Our Miami lawyers have handled some of the most significant lawsuits in Florida. We represent business clients in a broad array of commercial disputes, including deal litigation, contract interpretation, corporate governance, real estate, class actions, employment and labor, civil rights, construction, mortgage banking, insurance coverage, bankruptcy and workouts, intellectual property, product liability, toxic torts, health care litigation, and international disputes.

Our Miami corporate group provides guidance to its clients on investments, transactions, and compliance matters. Our primary areas of focus include mergers and acquisitions, private equity and venture capital, corporate finance and capital markets (including public and private securities offerings), emerging companies, corporate governance, joint ventures and strategic alliances, cross-border transactions, and general corporate services. Our private clients/trusts and estates practice counsels high net worth individuals on complex estate, tax, and business planning, providing a unique solution to each client we serve.

In bankruptcy and debtor/creditor matters, we represent secured and unsecured creditors, acquirers of assets and operations, bond and debenture holders, and creditors’ committees. These engagements include significant representations of banks, private equity investors, and asset-based lenders in proceedings under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code.

Our employment and labor lawyers offer our employer clients a robust practice encompassing day-to-day advice and counsel, defense of employment disputes and investigations, wage and hour actions, workplace safety claims, ADA employment issues, and business transaction support.

We also take great advantage of our location in Miami — the commercial gateway to Latin America — and have a vibrant international practice. We represent both domestic and foreign clients in connection with inbound and outbound international transactions, with a particular emphasis on commerce involving Latin America. Our international arbitration practice focuses on Latin America, as Miami is often the preferred neutral location for disputes arising out of the Caribbean, Central America, and South America because of its lower costs, cultural compatibility, multilingual professional force, and special international arbitration court division.

  • In 2020, the Miami office was recognized as a Tier 1 firm by U.S. News-Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” in the areas of Banking and Finance Law, Commercial Litigation, Corporate Law, Labor Law - Management, Mergers & Acquisitions Law, Bankruptcy and Creditor Debtor Rights/Insolvency and Reorganization Law, Employment Law - Management, Litigation - Labor & Employment, and Real Estate Law.  
  • The 2020 Chambers USA guide recognizes the firm among leaders in Miami in the areas of Corporate/M&A & Private Equity, and Healthcare. 
  • In 2020, eight lawyers from the Miami office have been named among the 2020 Best Lawyers in America.
