Coral Gables, FL. –
Brian Barakat and Giacomo Bossa have formed Barakat + Bossa, a business law practice combining their extensive expertise in Partnership and Business Disputes, Contracts, Corporate Law, Real Estate, Non-Competes and Fraud to serve clients in Florida, the United States and Europe. The firm will be headquartered in Coral Gables, where Barakat has many community ties including his current Chairmanship of the Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce. Bossa, having practiced in Italy, Spain, Belgium and the United States will head up International and Real Estate cases.
Barakat + Bossa will provide services in English, Spanish, Italian, French, Portuguese, German, Czech and Mandarin with plans to add more as growth occurs. Partners and team members offer a depth of cultural knowledge in different jurisdictions which is highly valued for today’s global business interactions. Before this new partnership, Barakat was the principal at Barakat Law, founded 15 years ago and Bossa was formerly with Morris Law in Miami.
The new partnership is creating a mentoring program called the Incubator which is designed to develop young attorneys into trial lawyers and to attract bright new talent. “This is a place to learn to try a case before a jury, for talented young lawyers who do not choose to go to the State or Public defender’s office,” Barakat notes. Already, several lawyers have received the opportunity to try their first case, often as first chair, under the direction of these partners.
The need for the new firm was evident to both partners who have helped hundreds of their clients with business disputes for years in the Miami area. As many entrepreneurial companies grew, their legal needs also expanded – often with cases that required service outside the area and into other countries. Plus, many companies were interacting with opportunities presented by businesses outside of the United States and required help about legal issues and other details involved with contracts with these entities. “The value for our current and new clients is that we can serve more of their needs in so many more jurisdictions,” according to Brian Barakat. “This simplifies the process for legal services and is more efficient than having multiple firms handling different issues.” Barakat feels many people are comfortable with relations they have with him
and the knowledge he has of their businesses and industries.
“Our goal is to provide aggressive and professional legal counsel to solve business problems in the most cost-effective way,” adds Giacomo Bossa. “We want to maximize profits and minimize risks for our clients both locally and wherever they have business interests outside our area.”
The firm is also committed to environmental and community causes continuing a tradition started by Barakat, who was awarded the Green Business Bronze Certification from the City of Coral Gables and received the Diamond Awards from The Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce as a sustainable business. “Community involvement has always been a priority for me,” Barakat says. “We want to provide a great place for everyone to do business and raise their families.”
