MIAMI—Jorge A. Mestre co-edited the recently published book, Discovery Across the Globe: Obtaining Evidence Abroad to Support U.S. Proceedings. The book discusses the procedures for obtaining evidence in the United States through the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and the Hague Convention on the Taking of Evidence Abroad in Civil and Commercial Matters of 1970. The book then describes, in successive chapters organized by jurisdiction, the laws that enable foreign litigants to obtain evidence in the respective countries. Each chapter discusses the controlling law on foreign discovery, including the type of evidence obtainable, confidentiality and privilege, alternative dispute resolution, and costs.
Mestre engages exclusively in a commercial-litigation practice and is Board Certified in International Litigation and Arbitration by The Florida Bar. He has litigated domestic and international arbitration matters in both English and Spanish.
