Anchoring the Miami appellate and trial strategy team are former Chief Judge (Florida’s Third District Court of Appeal) David Gersten, who also serves as a mediator and arbitrator in complex cases, and Joseph Sacher who has extensive litigation, trial, and appellate experience in securities and complex commercial litigation in state and federal courts.

The Miami office works closely with the firm’s East Coast offices and with Gordon & Rees attorneys strategically located in offices nationwide. The attorneys in the Miami office handle complex commercial litigation, employment, intellectual property, bankruptcy, receivership, environmental, construction, and professional liability matters; they provide corporate clients with general counsel, pre-litigation solutions and transactional advice regarding regulatory matters, aviation and marine sales and compliance, operations, human resources, and products. Together our attorneys in the Miami office bring extensive litigation and transactional experience to global corporations, directors and officers, associations and non-profits as well as national and regional companies.

In addition to providing top quality legal service, our Miami office attorneys actively support a number of charities including the National Kidney Foundation of Florida, Legal Aid, Kristi House, MarchForth, Sheridan House Family Ministries,  Habitat for Humanity, Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, The Museum of Coral Gables, plus arts, literacy and legal education programs in several counties.
