Richard Lorenzo focuses on international commercial litigation and arbitration for foreign and domestic clients with interests throughout the United States, Latin America, and Europe.
Using creative and nuanced strategies, Richard resolves his clients’ complex cross-border disputes which are often precedent-setting. Whether it’s a dispute in English or Spanish, or before any of the most important tribunals or institutions – including the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID), the International Centre for Dispute Resolution (ICDR), and others – Richard effectively analyzes the matter and collaborates with clients to implement a winning strategy. Time spent living in Latin America attuned Richard to the civil law system and political landscape of Spanish-speaking jurisdictions, which complements his English-language arbitration practices.
Richard serves as a Regional Managing Partner for the Americas and, as a member of the firm’s leadership team, is focused on achieving the firm’s strategy in the region. He previously held a number of management roles including board member and Miami Office Managing Partner.
Richard is actively involved in academia. He extensively lectures in his practice area and is an adjunct professor of International Arbitration and Litigation at Florida International University College of Law. Richard also maintains a national and international media presence on topical international legal issues, and has appeared on CNN En Español and served as a guest commentator on Bloomberg Radio.
