Discover the dynamic to advance

Personal growth

I graduated from the University of Miami School of Law, cum laude, in 1995. I joined then Hogan & Hartson in 2002 as a lateral associate, after gaining experience at several other law firms. I’ve resided in Brazil, Chile, and the Dominican Republic. And I’ve been afforded the tools to advance and grow professionally, and provided with an excellent platform to expand my practice. 

Professional expertise 

Today, I’m the Managing Partner of the Miami office and a partner in the International Arbitration practice. I focus primarily on international, cross-border, and commercial litigation and arbitration. I’ve handled numerous complex commercial international arbitration matters in both English and Spanish before the International Chamber of Commerce, the American Arbitration Association, the International Centre for Dispute Resolution, and the International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes. I also comment on international legal matters in national and international media, and have made numerous televised appearances on CNN En Español. 

My day is focused on tending to our pending matters and our clients’ needs. Our team is multilingual and multicultural, and they take ownership of our clients’ disputes and produce first-class results. In addition, we’re always looking to expand and enhance our practice and professional reputations. We have regular dinners and lunches to discuss our practice, and learn from each other.

Deep relationships 

When I’m not working or traveling on behalf of clients, I spend time with my family and enjoy golf and boating. I’m good friends with many of my Hogan Lovells colleagues – we attend events together and even vacation together.

Hogan Lovells is serious about promoting inclusiveness and has supported any development idea I’ve suggested. For example, I’ve served for many years on the board of the Hispanic National Bar Foundation (HNBF) – a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization representing Hispanics in the legal profession – and am currently its chair. Not only has the firm encouraged my involvement, but it’s sponsored and hosted events for the organization, including the HNBF Law Day Camp and HNBF Awards Gala.
