Rafael R. Ribeiro
For over 10 years, clients have relied on Rafael Ribeiro to handle their multi-jurisdictional disputes, international arbitrations, and corporate investigations. Leveraging his dual citizenship in Brazil and the U.S. — and his fluency in Portuguese, Spanish, and French — Rafael has significant international experience, particularly in the energy and healthcare sectors.
Clients have described Rafael as a "business lawyer" who has a "good way of seeing the business picture and empathizing with the client and the case," and Chambers USA has described Rafael as having "a growing reputation for handling a range of commercial litigation matters, including alternative dispute resolution, internal investigations and international arbitration."
While in law school, Rafael interned for the Honorable Justice Harry Lee Anstead of the Florida Supreme Court and spent a semester as a visiting student at the University of Montpellier's International Business Law Master's Program (Master Professionnel Droit du Commerce International).
