McConnell Valdés LLC opens office in Miami

McConnell Valdés LLC, the largest law firm in Puerto Rico, has expanded its operations by establishing an office in Miami.

With this, McV
reinforces its expansion plan and continuous growth, the firm stated in a press
release.

The newly
opened office offers legal services to a diverse client roster that range from
individuals to  financial institutions
and real estate developers, in areas such as white-collar and criminal defense,
commercial financing, OFAC, labor, real estate, bankruptcies and workout
matters, among other segments.

With close
to 200 attorneys and administrative staff, McV Puerto Rico will provide support
to the Miami office. McV Miami is headed by María Domínguez. 

Domínguez,
who also leads the Government Enforcement & White Collar and Criminal
Defense Practice Team, is a well known litigator who is a former First

Puerto Rico (San Juan) where she held several supervisory positions, including

Acting Chief of the Civil Division, White Collar and General Crime Chief, and
Senior Litigation Counsel. She also worked as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the
U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Florida (Miami). 

She began
her career in public service as an Assistant State Attorney in the 11th
Judicial Circuit of Florida, under the leadership of former U.S. Secretary of
Justice, Janet Reno.

“At McV
we’re more than legal advisors. We work together with clients, becoming their
partners and focusing on their business success. Our commitment to clients has
been instrumental in achieving  over
seventy years of continued achievements,” said
Arturo García-Solá, managing director of McConnell Valdés.

“Today, we
continue adapting this vision and our way of doing business as we move forward.
Opening the Miami office is a direct reflection of this philosophy,” he said.

McConnell
Valdés in Miami handles a wide variety of civil and commercial disputes in local
and federal courts, and before administrative agencies in both jurisdictions.

The firm’s
attorneys also serve as mediators or represent clients in the mediation process
