Alvarez & Diaz-Silveira LLP (ADS) was founded by a team of experienced attorneys who worked together for many years at a major global law firm. It has continued to grow by adding other attorneys with similar backgrounds and who share the same focus and goals. Dedicated to representing clients in corporate, business, and real estate transactional matters, ADS draws upon experience and breadth of knowledge to assist its clients in advancing their business goals.
The firm regularly advises companies of all sizes and sophisticated individuals in connection with mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, financings, and other complex business deals. ADS also counsels governing bodies and other stakeholders with respect to maintaining practical and proactive governance policies and effectively managing their duties and obligations. Additionally, ADS has built an active practice representing early-stage and developing enterprises in connection with capital raises in the venture and private equity spaces.
The synergy between the corporate and real estate practices of ADS provides clients with an efficient alternative to larger, more impersonal firms. ADS advises real estate developers, investors, and owners in connection with the acquisition, financing, and disposition of Class A properties and other commercial real estate assets and the development, management, and operation of senior housing, hotel, restaurant, and other commercial projects. Landlords and tenants look to ADS for counsel in connection with the leasing of all types of office, industrial and retail spaces. ADS attorneys have extensive experience in advising clients throughout the capital stack of real estate finance, including mortgage and mezzanine debt, capital investment, preferred equity, ground lease and tenant in common structures, having represented private and institutional clients on all sides of such transactions.
Using a collaborative and pragmatic approach, ADS regularly provides constructive advice and innovative legal solutions, including offering corporate immigration services and commercial contract drafting, review, and negotiation services, for clients who do not maintain internal legal departments.
Based in Miami and with Spanish language capabilities, ADS serves clients with interests throughout Latin America and the Caribbean basin. Domestic, European, and Asian clients also rely on the firm’s experience and advice for their business needs.
