Juan Enjamio Manages Huntonwilliams Miami Office And Focuses On Continued Growth Of International Law Firm
As managing partner of Hunton & Williams’ Miami office, Juan Enjamio is focused on defending clients in complex disputes, while helping the firm continue growing as an international law firm.
Focusing on the defense of companies encountering employment disputes, he has extensive experience in international and commercial litigation as well as in the defense of class-action suits, which he says are becoming more and more common. Among the firm’s clients are a wide array of Fortune 500 companies, including large international and prominent financial institutions.
After spending a decade at Holland & Knight, in 1999 Mr. Enjamio helped form the Miami office of Hunton & Williams. Since then, he has worked on attracting top lawyers who share the firm’s vision and core values.
Besides the firm’s track record dealing with complex disputes, Mr. Enjamio is proud of the Miami office’s community involvement, with 100% of its full-time lawyers working on pro bono projects, providing counsel to foundations and individuals.
"It isn’t just about attracting clients and providing great legal service," he said, "but it’s also doing that in the context of being a full professional — a well-rounded service to the community [through] pro bono work, service to the bar and to the bench. That’s [how] we view ourselves."
Mr. Enjamio currently sits on the board of the Center for Ethics and Public Policy at the University of Miami, on the board of the Hispanic Alumni Association of the University of Florida and on the board of the Center for Financial Stability at United Way, helping those in financial need get back on their feet.
Originally from Havana, Mr. Enjamio has seen Miami change tremendously from the days he grew up in Little Havana and worked as a law clerk on Brickell Avenue. However, in his viewpoint, the one thing that has stayed the same is that Miami has always been a great place to practice law.
"In Miami we have some of the most challenging cases," he said. "If you look at the docket that we litigate as a legal community in Miami, we litigate some of the most interesting and important cases in the country from a business standpoint. It’s always been a leading litigation city, for whatever historical reasons."
