Javier A. Reyes, Organizes and Co-Teaches Course for the University of Florida: “Doing Business With Latin America.”

The University of Florida has a spring break class that they organize in South Florida. This is the second year that Mr. Reyes helped organize and teach this class. As a follow up from last year’s class, this year’s class again included segments on on the diplomatic and regulatory changes in Cuba. Mr. Reyes, in addition to coordinating and preparing all of the material for the class including a reading list for the students, taught the segment on handling a complex international commercial cases using perhaps the biggest and most complex case in history, the multifaceted action filed by Chevron in the United States against a group of sophisticated domestic and foreign lawyers attempting to enforce false claims against the corporation. Using examples from this historic $19,000,000,000 billion dollar case, Mr. Reyes guided the students regarding the many complexities that can arise in litigating international cases and managing international litigation from the United States. Mr. Reyes has extensive experience litigating complex international and arbitration cases in Latin America, and is fluent in Spanish.
