Much of Mr. Rivkin’s work involves representing clients from around the globe, with an emphasis on Latin America and Europe. He maintains extensive contacts with business executives and attorneys worldwide, and is well-attuned to the differences in custom, culture, sensibilities, and legal systems that may impact the representation of non-U.S. clients. In addition to his commercial litigation and arbitration practice, Mr. Rivkin enjoys acting as outside general counsel and advisor for a variety of business enterprises in intellectual property, licensing, corporate governance, employment, investment financing, and other day-to-day business and transactional matters.

We are delighted to have David join our firm,” said Daniel A. Wuersch, the firm’s co-founder.
