Since its opening in 1987, Hughes Hubbard’s Miami office has provided sophisticated counsel to our clients with business interests in the U.S., Latin America, the Caribbean, and Europe. Today, we provide legal services in two principal areas of practice – corporate and litigation – and work closely with the Firm’s other offices to provide the full range of legal services. Our lawyers offer an essential combination of skills: New York training (many have worked there and are familiar with New York law, the law of choice for international deals), knowledge of foreign languages (the majority speak Spanish, Portuguese, or other languages) and cultures, and an understanding of the international business and legal arena.
Our corporate lawyers represent U.S. and foreign clients in domestic and international transactions and form the core of the Firm’s Latin American practice. These transactions cover a broad range of subjects, including: bank and project financing; cross-border joint ventures, mergers, and acquisitions; offshore fund offerings; public and privately placed securities offerings; commercial paper; derivatives; and corporate structuring.
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.
