Craig Rasile Manages Staffs New Dla Piper Miami Office To Serve As Crucial Link Between Europe And Latin America

Written by on June 30, 2011

International law firm DLA Piper has 28 attorneys focused on bankruptcy and restructuring in its global army of more than 1,400.

Craig Rasile, who’s in the midst of staffing up a brand new office in the heart of downtown Miami, is the man picked to change all that.

He recently led an exodus of seven attorneys from Hunton & Williams, four who joined DLA with him.

"They asked me to help them organize, manage, build and develop the Miami office," Mr. Rasile said. "I’ve done that at Holland + Knight, I did it at Hunton & Williams and I thought I could do this globally for DLA Piper."

He said he agreed with DLA in that the world is becoming smaller and in partnering with firms around the globe to serve clients.

The Miami office is to serve as a link between Europe, where DLA has more than 125 partners, and Latin America, where it’s trying to grow its presence.

Mr. Rasile discussed the challenges of opening a new office in a town swamped with lawyers, and why of all places in Latin America DLA chose to work in Venezuela, with Miami Today staff writer Zachary Fagenson.
