By: PAG Law PLLC
MIAMI - April 25, 2022 - PRLog -- At PAG Law, our goal is not to grow but to constantly improve. With selective growth in mind, PAG Law is pleased to announce that two leading international attorneys, Ricardo W. Beller and David F. Johnson, will be joining the firm's New York office as Partners as of May 1, 2022.
Ricardo comes to PAG Law from Marval, O'Farrell & Mairal in Argentina, one of the largest law firms in Latin America, where he has been a Partner for more than 20 years. Prior to joining Marval he worked as a foreign associate at Cleary, Gottlieb, Steen & Hamilton, in New York.
David has been a Partner at three of the largest international law firms for nearly two decades, including most recently as a Hong Kong-based Partner of Norton Rose Fulbright. David started his career at Cleary Gottlieb in New York.
"We are thrilled that Rick and David will be joining us at PAG Law," said Peter Eccles, Managing Partner of PAG Law's New York office. "Rick is well-known and respected as a leading lawyer throughout Latin America. His familiarity with the U.S. market will strengthen our cross-border corporate practice in a number of key areas," he added. "David has unmatched experience in cross-border capital markets transactions and will bring that expertise to PAG Law and also help us launch our new Caribbean practice."
"Peter and I have known David and Rick since working together at the beginning of our careers at Cleary Gottlieb," noted Juan Pablo Cappello, a founder of PAG Law. "We are really pleased to have international lawyers of their caliber joining us as we grow strategically and selectively, and David's extensive network in Asia will also complement and expand the reach of PAG Law globally."
"I am excited to be joining PAG Law," said Ricardo. "They have an outstanding Latin America and venture capital practice and an efficient and practical approach to solving problems and closing transactions. With venture investment in LATAM doubling for the third consecutive year and growing to more than $15 billion in 2021 alone, PAG Law is growing rapidly. I am very enthusiastic to be a part of what they are building here."
According to David, "PAG Law has a unique platform that focuses on doing fewer things better. My clients will appreciate the personalized and high-quality legal advice that PAG Law offers." He added, "PAG Law is a leading international boutique firm and is well-known in Latin American venture capital circles. I look forward to contributing to PAG Law's excellent practice and growing the firm's team and capabilities in new markets and geographies."
