MIAMI – October 10, 2016 – Miami-based Diaz, Reus & Targ, LLP announced that the firm was selected to the prestigious 2016 Global Investigations Review annual guide, the GIR100. After thorough vetting of nominees, the GIR100 represents the top 100 law firms from around the world that are able to repeatedly handle sophisticated, cross-border government-led and internal corporate investigations. The GIR100 law firms are also proven to have earned the trust of clients, other law firms, and the government agencies in the jurisdictions in which they operate.
“We are very honored to join this elite group of global law firms in the GIR100,” says Diaz Reus Global Managing Partner Michael Diaz, Jr. “We’ve worked very hard over the years to build a world class government and internal investigations practice, and we continue to look for ways to increase our value to clients.”
Diaz Reus recently added veteran DEA and DOJ counsels, Patricia L. Diaz and Richard N. Wiedis, to its Litigation, White Collar Criminal, and Fraud, Corporate & Government Investigations practices.
GIR100 notes that “Diaz, Reus & Targ boasts a team of former police officers and FBI agents as well as experienced white-collar lawyers, making the firm a natural choice for executives under fire.”
“Getting the right external counsel – with experienced people in necessary locations – can mean the difference between sinking and swimming for a company under government scrutiny,» says GIR100 editor, David Vascott. «For corporate counsel, knowing which firm, or firms, to turn to during a crisis – sometimes at a moment’s notice – is of the utmost importance.”
Global Investigations Review is a London-based publication offering daily news, analysis and live events focusing on the law and practice of international investigations. In early 2015, GIR acquired Just Anti-Corruption, an online news service based in Washington, DC, focusing on the law and practice surrounding the FCPA and similar anti-bribery laws around the world.
Diaz, Reus & Targ, LLP operates on five continents, across 17 offices in key business centers, offering a global practice centered around national and transnational parallel proceedings and transactions in the following broad areas: sovereign, trade, commerce, finance, and fraud; civil litigation and arbitration; asset identification, location, tracing and recovery; white collar crime, regulatory, and criminal investigations and defense in matters of corruption, bribery, money laundering, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, OFAC, Specially Designated Nationals, and the Bank Secrecy Act; and politically sensitive investigations including the recovery of U.S. immigration status and visas.
