MIAMI—Law firms have touted improvements in terms of diversity and inclusion, but when you move the magnifying glass to the top of the pyramid, minority lawyers continue to hold a small fraction of leadership positions. Jorge A. Mestre spoke with Law360 about implicit bias and how to counteract these difficulties with strategies demonstrating mentorship and leadership.
In stressing that there are many unconventional ways to get to where you want to go Mestre said, “There are many different paths to success that don’t preclude any particular path. No one path is better than another.”
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.
