Ibrahim Reyes-Gándara, Partner at Roig Lawyers, Appointed to Serve as an Advisor to the Lawyers Advising Lawyers Program

July 14, 2014

Roig Lawyers, a minority-owned, litigation law firm dedicated to serving clients across seven offices throughout Florida, is pleased to announce that Ibrahim Reyes-Gándara has been appointed by The Florida Bar to serve as an Advisor for the Lawyers Advising Lawyers program.

Lawyers Advising Lawyers (formerly SCOPE) is a resource offered by the Young Lawyers Division of The Florida Bar. As an Advisor, an experienced lawyer volunteers to provide new attorneys with insight on the law and common industry practices when the young lawyer faces a challenging legal situation that they have not previously encountered. The young lawyer gains the benefit of insight from a knowledgeable senior practitioner, while still retaining their independent legal judgment.

About Ibrahim Reyes-Gándara. Ibrahim, a partner in the Coral Gables office, is a true victim’s advocate who helps the injured and their loved ones obtain justice. He joined the firm in February of 2014 when Zumpano Castro (previously known as Infante Zumpano) combined forces with Roig Lawyers.

Ibrahim serves as a legal counselor to businesses large and small, local and multinational, in analyzing their legal exposure and handling their litigation needs. Other areas of practice include products liability, complex commercial litigation, insurance defense, and entertainment law.

His refined perspective affords his clients the benefit of having someone with a science background (B.S. in Pre-Med with Major in Microbiology from the University of Florida) and legal training (J.D. from the University of Miami), who has represented plaintiffs and defendants, individuals and companies, small and large businesses, throughout his legal career.

Ibrahim was invited by members of the Colombian Congress to assist in the drafting of legislation addressed towards the safety of children in pools to prevent pool entrapment. As a result, Ley Espítia (Law 1209 of 2008) became law in Colombia.

He is regularly consulted and/or interviewed by both English and Spanish media on current legal issues, including safety in cruise ships, resorts, and hospitals, as well as topics relating to Latin American trade law.
