MIAMI – September 16, 2019 – Diaz, Reus & Targ, LLP announces that the Firm has been recognized by the prestigious international legal guide The Legal 500 Latin America 2019 as one of the leading Miami firms doing business in Latin America.
The legal guide comments:
“Diaz, Reus & Targ, LLP‘s Miami headquarters has a distinct focus on Latin America, with some 90% of the firm’s business being connected to the region. It has an especially strong record in white-collar crime, financial fraud, international asset recovery, anti-money laundering, Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) and Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) matters, and sanctions and internal investigations; it has represented a number of sovereign and quasi-sovereign clients over the years, including governments, central banks, state oil companies and public officials. The firm is also especially close to the local finance and shipping communities in Latin America. Beyond its core strengths, it is active in the broader dispute resolution sphere, including commercial litigation and arbitration. It has a fine record in banking, real estate, international tax, immigration and a growing presence in offshore insurance and reinsurance. The firm is closely connected to Venezuela in particular and has represented successive administrations and government-linked companies on a regular basis. Argentina, Peru, Honduras and Colombia have also been key jurisdictions for the practice. Global managing partner Michael Diaz has an outstanding reputation in FCPA, OFAC, white-collar crime and investigations, while Gary Davidson is making an impression in the arbitration field, representing a wide range of quasi-sovereign and private companies in Latin America; the pair were recently among the first lawyers to be Board Certified in international litigation and arbitration by the Florida Bar. Robert Targ is another prominent figure in white-collar crime and investigations and George Diaz leads on cross-border real estate issues and the relocation of private wealth from Latin America to the US. Administrative managing partner Marta Colomar-Garcia is another key figure.”
