Financial Services Litigation
Our Commercial Practice
In this rapidly changing global marketplace, businesses including, lenders and insurers are challenged with a landscape that has been redefined by regulatory changes and greater scrutiny as a result of the recent economic crisis. Even the playing field itself has changed. As a truly international state, Florida is at the epicenter of much of the changes occurring in Latin America and the Caribbean from the Panama Canal to Cuba.
Experienced legal counsel that you can trust will always be the one essential tool in staying ahead in business. It is more vital than ever to rely and depend on a law firm that can help you navigate through more regulatory changes and business complexities that are certain to arise in the marketplace.
For us, our “average” litigation case, business transaction and arbitration straddle countries and continents, and involve parties and business that are both domestic and international.
Our attorneys have extensive experience in dealing with financial institutions in litigation, transactions, arbitrations, and creditors’ rights matters. We are constantly learning about the latest legal developments and new regulations impacting the commercial sector, including the impact on retail financial institutions, investment banks, asset management and lending institutions and regulators.
We regularly deal with credit, banking and payments markets, advising on local and multijurisdictional regulation, securities law compliance, logistics for the cross border shipment of goods, mortgage loan fraud, real estate disputes, mergers and acquisitions, product development and distribution, documentation, and establishment of lending and banking businesses.

Corporate Finance & Restructuring
ROIG Lawyers also can assist with the restructuring and dissolution of business entities, and the development of exit strategies. Careful attention is given to defining and protecting the rights and obligations of the principals of a business during the negotiating, drafting and review of corporate and commercial agreements. This is particularly important in legal agreements relating to joint ventures, shareholder rights, partnerships, operational matters and private equity investments.
ROIG Lawyers has the expertise to work with foreign banks and businesses expanding into the United States. We also advise U.S. banks and businesses expanding outside the U.S. and have relationships throughout Europe, Latin America, and the Caribbean Islands.
The widening of the Panama Canal and the opening of Cuban markets to American businesses has only strengthened Florida’s business relationship with Latin America.
Our lawyers are ready for the task. We are a minority-owned firm, our multilingual attorneys speak the language and our diverse lawyers know the culture and business customs of Latin America. Not only do we excel at litigation and transactional work, but we also boast one of the top international arbitration attorneys in the state.
