Notable practitioners

"Outstanding" Odalys de la Caridad Alvarez Lima is heralded for her skills in commercial litigation and arbitration. One source comments: "She is very fast, dynamic and captures the point quickly. I would never like to go against her, she is tireless, insistent and highly competitive." Another interviewee notes: "I don't have a bad word to say about her, she is spectacular." Aside from her work in contentious mandates, she also has an important corporate advisory practice.

One interviewee describes Rodolfo Hernández Fernández as "extremely competent and a great trial lawyer." His practice encompasses an array of contentious and non-contentious commercial matters linked to foreign investment. He has notable experience assisting international companies with corporate governance matters and the establishment of joint ventures and branch offices in Cuba.

Yanet Souto Fernández "has a lot of prestige," according to one source, while another points out that "she is very strong in litigation and arbitration." She is well versed in foreign investment and corporate law and is also famed for her expertise in IP, routinely assisting clients with trade marks, patents and copyrights. Interviewees also point out that she is equally "very good at civil and family law."

Up-and-coming practitioner Zulma Echeverria is noted by market commentators for her involvement in complex litigation cases relating to foreign investment. She also has experience advising international clients, particularly from the transport sector, on non-contentious corporate issues.
