Jones Walker LLP Strengthens Presence in South Florida


MIAMI, Nov. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Jones Walker LLP announced today that the national law firm has entered into a strategic alliance agreement with Vocero, LLC, a Miami-based public affairs firm led by former US Representative Carlos Curbelo.

This alliance provides the opportunity for Jones Walker and Vocero to expand their service offerings in Washington, DC, south Florida, and throughout Latin America. The agreement also allows for both firms to collaborate and provide services for their joint clients while simultaneously operating as separate entities.

This joining of forces demonstrates Jones Walker's steady progress to maintain a foothold in south Florida and strengthen its nationally-recognized government relations team. Additionally, this alliance with Vocero complements Jones Walker's recent expansion in Miami, where it added former Fowler Rodriguez partners George J. Fowler, III, Luis E. Llamas, Juan E. Serralles, IV, Mark D. Rich, and Michael A. Rosen. The law firm also formed a strategic alliance agreement earlier this year with TCH Group, LLC, a government relations firm based in Washington, DC, and it will continue its strategic alliance that was established in 1999 with The Livingston Group.

Carlos Curbelo co-founded Vocero after finishing his service in Congress at the beginning of this year. He served as the US Representative for Florida's 26th Congressional District from 2015 to 2019. Prior to his election to the US House of Representatives, he served on the Miami-Dade County School Board.

Speaking about the alliance, Carlos said, "This exciting alliance with Jones Walker is important to our firm because of Jones Walker's excellent reputation, geographic footprint in the United States, and global client base. We look forward to providing our boutique strategic communications and public affairs services to high-impact organizations in the United States and throughout the world."

"Carlos is known for his collaboration and work across the aisle and this alliance allows us to bring new and enhanced offerings to our shared clients," said Bill Hines, managing partner of Jones Walker LLP. "His knowledge on foreign policy, particularly Latin America, and experience with maritime matters from his service on the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure is exceptional and a perfect fit for Jones Walker. We are pleased to be working side-by-side with Carlos and his team."

Jones Walker's Government Relations Practice Group, led by Chris Johnsen, addresses the many legislative and regulatory issues of state, regional, national, and international scope that affect clients. The firm's highly experienced attorneys and staff assist clients by monitoring state and federal legislative and executive activities; participating in regulatory agency administrative proceedings; and preparing, supporting, or opposing legislative initiatives on behalf of our clients.
