I'm a Board Certified international law expert helping companies do business around the world with an emphasis on international transactions, international arbitration and international litigation. My practice is based in Miami, Florida. Please feel free to reach out to me--if your case has an international angle to it, I can help you.

I'm honored that my work has been recognized by the Wall Street Journal, Fox Business News, CNBC, Forbes, the National Law Journal, PC World, the Daily Business Review, the Los Angeles Business Journal and other media outlets.

I'm also thankful for receiving recognition from the White House, the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives for my work in the nonprofit sector.

I have successfully represented Fortune 100 companies and foreign governments in a variety of complex arbitration, litigation and transactions matters. My international education and experience has played a key role in helping companies operate throughout the world.

Great lawyer; highly professional
I was lucky that someone told me about Mr. Cueto's services, I asked him about a dispute I was facing in one of my partnerships. Mr. Cueto understood my situation immediately and explained me in detail what would be the most appropriate way to proceed, always with professionalism and a lot of ethics, in four months we managed to resolve my situation beneficially for both parties. Mr. Cueto always answered my calls and emails as soon as possible, something very strange in the lawyers from Miami, I recommend him 100%, each USD paid was worth it.
