Diaz Reus International Law Firm & Alliance has obtained excellent results in the Legal 500 Latin America 2022 rankings.
The Miami office is ranked in the “International law firms in Latin America” category, in:

Compliance & Investigations. Michael Diaz, Jr. has been named a Leading Individual, and Robert Targ and Marta Colomar-Garcia are recommended lawyers. The Legal500 comments: “Diaz Reus has a fine reputation for representing public officials and other individuals in regulatory investigations and white-collar cases, alongside its experience in OFAC sanctions. While much of the firm’s Latin America practice has centred on Venezuela over the years, it has built a much stronger record across Latin America, including Nicaragua and other Central American states.”

International Arbitration: Gary Davidson, Marta Colomar-Garcia and Michael Diaz, Jr. are recommended lawyers. Clients comment: ‘Proven experience in all arbitration forums and procedures. They have a team of lawyers trained in the different systems of law, which allows them to know and apply the laws and precedents of each country, applicable to each case or arbitration process.’

City focus: Miami. The firm is in the list of the best Miami-based international firms doing business in Latin America.

In addition, the Bogotá office is ranked in:
Compliance and white-collar crime: Marcela Blanco, the office head, is a recommended lawyer, and Javier Coronado is named a Next Generation Partner and one the clients comments that he is “perhaps the best criminal lawyer in Colombia. The quality of his criminal litigation is outstanding. He is a great strategist in his practice and knowledgeable of all criminal law and criminal procedure.’

Corporate M&A: Marcela Blanco is a recommended lawyer. Clients comment: ‘A comparative advantage is the fact that the entire legal team of the firm has experience in litigation in US jurisdictions as well as in Colombia. They are bilingual lawyers who have worked in both jurisdictions, with all the advantages that this entails.‘ ‘It is one of the few firms in Colombia that offers professional advice from an international network of lawyers in those places where it has a presence, practically automatically. This enriches the legal advice they offer to their clients.‘
