Tiffany is a litigator who represents clients in disputes across multinational borders. She is uniquely qualified to help companies buy and sell goods across borders and resolve international business disputes: she is one of only 34 attorneys in Florida certified as an expert in international law, speaks four languages, and has practiced in Italy, France, and the United States. She counsels clients in Florida and throughout the world. She primarily defends and prosecutes claims for national and international businesses in international arbitration and litigation matters, and counsels multinational companies in foreign and domestic claims.
Tiffany represents clients in arbitration and related claims through the International Center for Dispute Resolution and the International Chamber of Commerce, among others, in all of the world’s major arbitration centers and under all the major arbitration rules, as well as investor-state arbitration under bilateral and multilateral investment treaties. She also handles all forms of international discovery and Hague Convention procedures.
Tiffany has developed a significant practice in the area of international fresh produce sales and consignment, supply and distribution, and in the oil and gas industry. In addition to her experience in oil and gas, fresh produce sales, and distribution industries, she has handled cases in banking, insurance, manufacturing, and construction. Specific matters include international claims under the Perishable Agricultural Commodities Act, claims under the U.N. Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, enforcement of arbitral awards, civil theft claims, corporate shareholder disputes, insurance coverage claims, and construction delay claims, among others.
Outside of her practice, Tiffany volunteers with the Refugee Assistance Alliance teaching English to newly arrived families. She travels frequently to Europe and Latin America and is fluent in Spanish and French.
