International Arbitration

Southern Florida is a hub of international commerce, whether it’s trading between the U.S. and Latin America, Europe, or Asia. Billions of dollars in goods annually enter the Port of Miami and Port Everglades, along with the Miami International Airport and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. Because of the sheer number of financial institutions with international operations located here, Southern Florida is also a financial hotspot.

When international trade disputes arise between two foreign parties, Miami is often chosen as the place to arbitrate these disputes. This is likely because of Florida’s recent passage of the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL), or Model International Commercial Arbitration Law. Furthermore, Miami is the location of the regional offices of the International Centre for Dispute Resolution (ICDR), as well as its world-renowned dispute hearing center.

Both federal and state law prefer dispute arbitration when the contract between the parties expressly provides for arbitration, as opposed to standard court litigation. Generally speaking, arbitration is less expensive and allows for quicker decisions made by arbitrators with extensive experience in the industry relevant to the parties.

If your dispute is subject to arbitration, our lawyers here at the Cueto Law Group have the experience and skills necessary to take your arbitration from inception to enforcement and award. Our experienced arbitration attorneys know full well the procedures and rules governing arbitration before the American Arbitration Association (AAA), the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), and UNCITRAL. Our team’s detailed analysis of your claims, in tandem with our years of arbitration and trial experience, produces a persuasive and easily-digestible presentation of your case so that you can obtain the maximum arbitral award you’re after.
