Cruz-Alvarez Named Top Lawyer by South Florida Legal Guide

Shook, Hardy & Bacon Miami Partner Frank Cruz-Alvarez was featured in the South Florida Legal Guide’s Top Lawyers Class of 2015, where local attorneys were asked about their inspiration, interesting cases and their current practice.

Talking about his work at Shook, Cruz-Alvarez says, “When I started the practice of law, I only wanted to work on the ‘big’ cases. But I have learned with time that the size of the case does not matter; what matters most is who you surround yourself with when working on that case.”

In the article, Cruz-Alvarez describes his most interesting case, an international arbitration against a Brazilian joint venture partner, saying, “It was an incredible experience, both in terms of learning the procedures and the rules of arbitration, but also in that I had the opportunity to work with a talented array of Brazilian lawyers.”
