MIAMI – Jorge A. Mestre was a guest lecturer at Georgetown University Law Center. He lectured at the Law School’s International Business Litigation in US Courts course. Among other things, the course explores issues common to litigation in U.S. courts arising from cross-border business litigation, including venue, jurisdiction, service of process, choice of law, discovery, and the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments in U.S. courts. The course also covers the resolution of disputes in litigation, as well as in arbitral proceedings. Mestre spoke on many of these topics including the use of 28 U.S.C. § 1782 as a way to obtain discovery in the U.S. in aid of a foreign proceeding.
Mestre’s practice is focused exclusively on commercial litigation, including international arbitration and litigation. Mestre is also an adjunct professor at St. Thomas University School of Law, where he teaches international arbitration.
