Diaz Reus’ high level meetings with government officials in support of Guyana’s quest in being the new center of international arbitration and dispute resolution for all of Latin America

Michael Diaz, Jr., Diaz Reus Managing Partner, Jayson Schwarz, Head of the Toronto office, member of the DRT Alliance; and Phillip Leon Euell, of Counsel in the Miami office, traveled to Georgetown, Guyana, last week for meeting with government, political, and business leaders, including Hon. Anil Nandlall (Guyana’s current Attorney General and Minister of Legal Affairs), Ms. Prithima Kissoon’s (Public Trustee/Official Receiver/State Solicitor); Mr. Odinga Lumumba, advisor to Guyana President, H.E.; Dr. Irfaan Ali, Vice President; and Hon. Dr. Bharat Jagdeo, and Governor Cabinet. In addition to these meetings, they also met with the American Chamber of Commerce of Guyana, known as AmCham, and are now official members.

Diaz Reus considered it crucial to visit Guyana, a country on the brink of a significant transformation. This change is propelled by the Stabroek Block’s oil and gas concession, a project that is generating substantial revenues and positioning Guyana as the fastest growing economy in the Western Hemisphere. The trip, however, wasn’t exclusively focused on offering their expert legal services, but also on fostering robust strategic partnerships towards foreign direct investment across a spectrum of economic sectors in Guyana. In addition to offering its services to – and collaborate with – the Government of Guyana in reviewing and modernizing its legislative commercial and corporate framework to accommodate and meet the needs of a growing and dynamic economy, Diaz Reus is also aiming to stimulate foreign direct investment, particularly in high-potential areas such as oil & gas, minerals & mining, infrastructure, and agriculture.

For the firm, this visit marks a foundational step towards helping Guyana to reinforce its legal and regulatory infrastructure, thus bolstering investor confidence and paving the way for sustainable, diversified economic growth.

DRT Global and Diaz Reus International Law Firm are devoted to leveraging their global expertise and network to support the legal, economic, and infrastructural development of Guyana, ensuring its readiness for its burgeoning economic expansion.
