Partners

Carlos F. Osorio is a partner at Harper Meyer and had been a partner at another Miami international law boutique for close to a decade, working closely with fellow practitioners in the “private client” world.  He has earned an advanced specialization from The Florida Bar in international law and presently serves as Chairman of The International Law Section of The Florida Bar (2018-2019). He is tri-lingual (English, Spanish and Portuguese) and has practiced as an attorney in Miami since 2002, focusing mainly on international disputes of many kinds, from international commercial disputes, trust disputes, shareholder battles, marital disputes, intellectual property disputes, to frauds, currency frauds and assisting in criminal investigations. He litigates in State and Federal Court and has been admitted to practice in numerous Federal District Courts in the United States. The common factor in his practice is that he attends quite often to the high-net-worth entrepreneur and family businesses from Latin America and Europe and forms close relationships with his clients, stressing practicality and loyalty.  Below are Mr. Osorio’s extensive areas of international practice.

 

Mr. Osorio is quite comfortable working with his clients’ trusted advisors – accountants, lawyers, family offices and financial advisors – in foreign languages, and forms strong referral relationships, both domestically and internationally. Mr. Osorio is a litigator by training but is also comfortable working in the role of outside general counsel and negotiator.
