Francisco Cerezo named to the Daily Business Review's 2020 list of Florida Trailblazers

DLA Piper is pleased to announce that Francisco Cerezo, the firm’s co-chair of Latin America Corporate and Finance and US head of Latin America Corporate, has been named a 2020 Florida Trailblazer by the Daily Business Review.

The publication highlighted Cerezo’s efforts to found PRxPR, a humanitarian aid organization launched after Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico in 2017. PRxPR has continued working toward the rebuilding of Puerto Rico, not only from the effects of Hurricane Maria, but also from subsequent natural disasters, including the earthquakes in the past year. Cerezo “considers his pro bono work through PRxPR an integral part of his Latin America practice,” and he and other founders of the organization have leveraged business contacts to raise money for the ongoing relief effort, according to the report.

Cerezo focuses his practice on corporate and international matters, advising US and foreign companies, family groups and sovereigns doing business in the Americas and the Caribbean. He has extensive experience in corporate and financial services, cross-border transactions, strategic corporate counseling, mergers and acquisitions and public-private partnerships. He regularly counsels global companies doing business in the Americas on matters ranging from complex transactions and market entry issues to compliance and general corporate strategic counsel.
