Image of a globe on the International Law webpageOur International Law practice recognizes South Florida's prominent role as an international trade, business and finance center with a need for sophisticated and effective legal counsel. South Florida has become a gateway to Latin America for U.S. businesses, as well as a connecting point for Latin American commerce into the U.S. 

We counsel both foreign and American companies using Florida as a base of operations for penetrating the Latin American and Caribbean markets. Our representation of Latin American-based clients includes acting as general counsel to several large multi-national privately-owned conglomerates relating to their international business.

In addition to assisting our U.S. clients in their worldwide investments and operations, we provide foreign companies and individuals with a wide range of legal services including the application of U.S. laws and regulations in areas such as corporate and business matters, real estate, licensing and distribution, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, import and export, agency relationships, cross-border trade, asset-based and lease finance, international commercial transactions and other matters. We have significant transactional experience in the area of international aviation and transportation.

Through our strong links with foreign lawyers throughout the Americas, Europe and the Far East, we are able to respond quickly and effectively to the increasing international needs of clients based in the United States or abroad.

Our firm members are involved and serve in leadership positions in international legal and business organizations, and actively participate in trade development missions. Most of our lawyers are fully bilingual in English and Spanish.

We welcome the opportunity to speak with you regarding our experience, and to discuss how our firm may be of service in this practice area.
