Jorge Mestre

United States
Rivero Mestre LLP

Jorge A. Mestre engages exclusively in a commercial-litigation practice, including international arbitration and litigation. In Chambers USA, he has been praised for “his strategic sense and creative thinking in critical litigation matters” and characterized as “a brilliant litigator with the creative edge; he sees a tactical advantage in what seems like an intractable problem.”

Among his many high-stakes matters, Mestre successfully represented a Chevron attorney in a case that was part of the $100 billion, 18-year litigation over Chevron’s alleged environmental damage in the Amazon. As part of the defense, a series of U.S. discovery proceedings were commenced that ultimately resulted in the Second Circuit ordering the production of more than 600 hours of outtakes (the most ever to be ordered produced in U.S. history) from “Crude”—a film about the litigation. The Wall Street Journal has called the case the “Legal Fraud of the Century.” Rivero Mestre was honored by the American Lawyer as a winner of a Global Legal Award in the category of Global Dispute of the Year: U.S. Fraud Litigation for its work on the case.
