Greenberg Traurig’s Cesar Alvarez Returns to UF Law Wednesday
Cesar Alvarez, president and chief executive officer of one of the nation’s largest law firms Greenberg Traurig—and a 1972 UF Law graduate—will speak at the University of Florida Levin College of Law on the realworld practice of law at 5 p.m., Wednesday, March 28, in the Chesterfield Smith Ceremonial Classroom (HOL 180). Alvarez’s visit is also a Greenberg Traurig recruiting event where law students will have the chance to meet associates to learn more about the firm.
During his time as CEO, the firm has experienced its most significant growth, from 325 lawyers in eight offices in 1997 to approximately 1,600 attorneys and government professionals in 33 locations in the United States, Europe and Asia. Prior to becoming CEO, Alvarez practiced securities, corporate and international law for more than 25 years. He has represented numerous public companies and serves on the board of directors of several publicly-traded corporations and charitable organizations. The event is co-sponsored by the Business Law Association and the Center for Career Services. A reception sponsored by Greenberg Traurig will be held immediately following the event.
