MIAMI — For the third year in a row, Rivero Mestre and Jorge A. Mestre have been recognized by the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD) as a “Top Performer” at the Annual Meeting. The designation is awarded to the most active member corporations and law firms.
Rivero Mestre has been involved with LCLD since 2012. In the past year, Rivero Mestre helped kick start the Pathfinders program, M. Paula Aguila served as the Co-Chair to Fellows Alumni Regional Committee, Raemy Charest participated in the Fellows program, and Carlos Rodriguez took on the role of Miami City Lead for the LCLD’s minority mentoring program.
The LCLD is an organization of more than 220 corporate chief legal officers and law firm managing partners—the leadership of the profession—who have dedicated themselves to creating a truly diverse U.S. legal profession. The programs are designed to attract, inspire, and nurture the talent in society and within the organization. Their ultimate goal is to build a more open and diverse legal profession.
Rivero Mestre is one of a small number of minority owned law firms in the United States that practice complex commercial litigation, including international litigation and arbitration, at the highest levels. Eighty percent of its lawyers and its entire support staff come from a variety of racial and ethnic backgrounds.
