MIAMI—Rivero Mestre is pleased to announce that Amanda McGovern has been named in Benchmark Litigation’s list of “Top 250 Women in Litigation” for 2020 and has been recognized as a “Litigation Star” for International Arbitration in Florida.

“I’m honored to have been included in this year’s powerhouse list of Benchmark’s Top 250 Women in Litigation,” said McGovern. “Be a game changer, I tell my daughter. It’s the perfect time.”

The extensive research process used in the creation of Benchmark’s Top 250 Women in Litigation 2020 involves months of investigation into individual litigators’ professional activities as well as client feedback surveys and one-on-one interviews and has culminated in the selection of the most distinguished women in the world of litigation.

McGovern has been recognized repeatedly as one of the most respected lawyers in Florida. She represents clients engaged in trend-setting, cutting-edge businesses with significant experience in international, high-stakes arbitration and litigation related to Latin America. The creative strategy that she brings to complex international litigation is one of the reasons Ms. McGovern was recognized by Chambers USA 2020 as a top tier “Band 2” litigator. As noted in a Chambers interview, “she is intelligent, even-keeled, and a fierce advocate for her clients.” The Chambers ranking is a peer-reviewed recognition that she is one of the two highest-ranked women litigators in the State of Florida.
