Aliette Rodz Discusses the Influx of International Arbitration Cases in Miami

Daily Business Review

Aliette DelPozo Rodz, Co-Chair of the International Litigation and Arbitration Practice Group, was recently quoted in an article published by the Daily Business Review (DBR) titled “Miami Keeps Flexing Its Muscle as International Arbitration Hub.”

The article details the competition between Miami and New York in the number of international dispute cases. According to the DBR and the American Bar Association, Miami had 91 cases seated in 2023, while New York hosted 121 cases.

Aliette believes the turning point happened shortly after 2020. “And what has changed in the post-COVID years is that more law firms and clients started moving in, prompting a new awareness of Miami’s geographic convenience,” states Aliette. “You can travel here from everywhere, it’s very convenient, the weather is favorable year-round, so it really is conducive to be an easy location for parties to convene for arbitration.”
