Hughes Hubbard’s Miami office provides sophisticated counsel to clients with business interests in the U.S., Latin America, the Caribbean and Europe. The Miami team focuses on two areas of practice – corporate and litigation – and works closely with the firm’s other offices to provide the full range of legal services. We offer an essential combination of skills: New York and Florida law capability, fluency in foreign languages (the majority of our lawyers speak Spanish, Portuguese or other languages), and an understanding of the international business and legal arena.
Miami corporate lawyers form the core of the firm’s Latin American practice. We represent many of the world’s leading financial institutions as lead arrangers, administrative agents, collateral agents and participant lenders in cutting-edge, cross-border syndicated and bilateral loan facilities, with emphasis on acquisition financings, trade finance transactions, project financings, aircraft lease financings and financial restructurings. The team also represents borrowers in similar transactions. We also advise multinational corporations in structuring, negotiating and implementing cross-border mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, private equity investments and capital markets transactions.
With a deep bench of more than 30 litigators in multiple offices licensed to practice in Florida, our lawyers are experienced in protecting the interests of our clients in complex federal and state civil litigation as well as in arbitration proceedings. We have experience representing international and national clients in antitrust, banking, construction, employment, insolvency, intellectual property, professional liability, product liability, real property, RICO, and securities law proceedings. In addition, we have experience in FCPA and other internal investigations. We have conducted arbitration proceedings under all major domestic and international rules and procedures, including those of the American Arbitration Association (AAA) and its International Centre for Dispute Resolution (ICDR), the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA), and UNCITRAL among others.
