Winston & Strawn LLP has expanded its services and opened an office in Miami with 12 partners from prestigious firms in the area.

Our new team will focus on serving some of the region's strongest and fastest-growing areas of law, including complex commercial litigation, mergers and acquisitions, financial services, digital assets and blockchain, real estate, energy and infrastructure, and restructuring. We expect to add additional team members in the coming months.

Winston made the decision to expand to Miami given the city's position as a dynamic financial hub, an epicenter of business activity spanning numerous industries, and a critical nexus point for banking and international trade with Europe, Asia, and Latin America.

The firm will operate in the heart of Miami's Financial District in the Southeast Financial Center at 200 South Biscayne Boulevard.

The office is led by Enrique J. Martin, who joined Winston from Jones Day. Rick brings nearly 30 years of experience to his role, having represented clients in the United States, Europe, and Latin America on domestic and cross-border mergers and acquisitions, private equity, joint venture, restructuring, securities, and capital-raising transactions.

The initial group of attorneys joining Winston's Miami office is listed below.

The launch was covered extensively by the press, including articles in TheAmerican Lawyer, Law360, Reuters, and Latin Lawyer. Subsequent coverage included articles in the Daily Business Review, Legal Mag, Law.com, Law360, Bloomberg Law, and Reuters.
