Michael Diaz Jr. - Diaz Reus International Law Firm

Practice/Organization Description

An International Law Firm

Diaz Reus provides a comprehensive and full range of preeminent, innovative, sophisticated and cost-efficient legal services for U.S.-based and global clients—including multinational and Fortune 500 corporations, foreign government entities and public officials, banks and other financial institutions, entrepreneurs and high net worth individuals.

Because we’re a lean, agile and deeply experienced international firm, our clients in Latin America, the Middle East, the Far East, Europe and the U.S. enjoy top quality cost-effective results with immediate personal attention, speed and economy—and without the bureaucratic layers and high overhead of much larger firms.

From offices in Miami, Shanghai, Caracas, and Frankfurt, and our affiliate in Bogota, Sao Paulo, and Monaco our multilingual lawyers handle corporate formation, licensing, tax, mergers and acquisitions, immigration, trust and estate, and family law matters—in addition to applying our noted litigation and arbitration experience in complex, high-profile business and commercial disputes, criminal and regulatory matters and government investigations and security portfolio analysis.

Diaz Reus has particular expertise and has enjoyed success on behalf of its clients in litigation and arbitration of intellectual property rights, business and contractual disputes, trademark and copyright violations, financial fraud claims and asset-recovery, anti-money-laundering compliance, and criminal and civil RICO cases, as well as in regulatory and white-collar criminal defense, seamlessly operating in the U.S., Latin America, the Far and Middle East, and Europe, through international courts and arbitral tribunals around the globe.

Diverse and Talented

Diaz Reus lawyers, solicitors, and consultants are multiethnic, multilingual and multitalented men and women. Our attorneys, solicitors and consultants speak English, Spanish, Czech, Mandarin Chinese, Shanghainese, Japanese, Russian, Arabic, Hindi, Italian, French, Portuguese and German.

As litigators they have won notable cases in domestic and international forums across the hemisphere and around the world; as transactional attorneys they counseled our clients—individuals, businesses and governmental entities alike—successfully cross geographic, legal and cultural borders to do business, find financing, navigate regulations, market products, merge, partner, acquire and form strategic alliances.

At Diaz Reus you will have a personal relationship with a top-rated, qualified attorney, solicitor, or consultant authorized to act expediently and proficiently on your behalf to resolve your matter successfully and in a cost effective manner.

Top Quality, Innovative Leaders

Our attorneys, solicitors, and consultants have won distinction, recognition and the highest peer ratings and ranking for their exceptional professional and ethical performance. They have litigated precedent-setting cases and successfully arbitrated complex commercial regulatory and transactional disputes; they’ve helped companies grow, prosper and cut through red tape; they’ve deftly managed, quelled and defended financially and politically sensitive high-profile investigations, published key articles in legal journals, and lectured to other attorneys, solicitors, and consultants and financial and business professionals on current and sophisticated legal matters. They are also leaders in their communities, through service, pro bono work and charitable contributions.

Professional Associations & Memberships

Community Focused

You’ll find Diaz Reus attorneys serving their professional, municipal, ethnic, international and religious communities, generously donating their time, talents and money.

They support and are actively involved in civic groups, philanthropic organizations, social welfare and community health associations, youth clubs, professional societies and more, often serving on boards of directors and in leadership and teaching positions.
