Juan M. Alcalá, assists clients who conduct international business, especially in Latin America, assess and mitigate their legal risks and when disputes arise, resolve them.

For more than 15 years, Juan has represented companies and individuals involved in high-exposure disputes across various industries, including energy, technology, construction, automotive, financial and pharmaceutical. These disputes have taken place in international tribunals, foreign courts and state and federal courts in the United States. They have involved a wide variety of subject matters, including business torts, partnership conflicts, complex lending transactions, fiduciary duties, environmental claims, copyright and trademark disputes, misappropriation of trade secrets, breach of contract allegations and product defects.

This broad experience provides Juan with a seasoned perspective and a pragmatic approach to resolving problems that focus on his clients' overall strategic objectives and their interests in a speedy resolution.

Juan grew up on the U.S.-Mexican border and spent a significant amount of his childhood in Mexico. He takes great pride in his humble upbringing and today spends part of his time supporting various nonprofit efforts focused on empowering young Latinos in socio-economically disadvantaged circumstances.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
