Profile

Luis brings strong and dedicated experience and judgment to his work for clients engaged in high-risk litigation.  He has successfully litigated business and contractual disputes as well as other high-risk product liability and commercial disputes for both plaintiffs and defendants in federal and state courts throughout the United States and its territories.

In more than 15 years with the firm, clients such as Philip Morris USA and NextEra have routinely relied on Lui to achieve positive results, both before and during litigation.  Whether he is appearing in court, formulating strategy, preparing or defending depositions, or negotiating favorable settlements, Lui’s quiet resolve, together with his dogged and passionate determination, instill confidence in those he represents.

In addition to his litigation work, Lui regularly provides litigation risk analysis and strategic advice to major corporate clients, and is routinely called on to test key issues via mock trials and other alternatively focused mechanisms.

Based on his experience and involvement in the South Florida legal community, in 2014 Florida Governor Rick Scott appointed Lui to serve on the Judicial Nominating Commission for the Eleventh Judicial Circuit. 

Before entering private practice, Lui earned an MBA in finance and investments, and worked throughout Central and South America.
