| EDITOR’S NOTE |

THE VALUE OF FACE TO FACE Attorneys, accountants, bankers and other professionals walk around glued to their smartphones and tablets. Like everyone else in America today, we rely on our mobile           clients and, of course, our family and friends. At times the 24/7 presence of our smartphone apps, text, emails, Facebook posts, and occasional voicemails seems like a blessing. Certainly, we can all respond much quickly to our clients’ needs and be productive at any time of the day and night. At other times, that instant access can seem like a curse, if you’re trying to enjoy a quiet dinner, “date night� or family activities with your children. While I also rely on my aging iPhone and trusty “go-anywhere� laptop to stay in touch, I have steadily come to appreciate the value of face-to-face contact in our digital age. Each year, I look forward to interviewing our Distinguished Attorneys, and the key partners at our Prominent Law Firms for the annual edition of our South Florida Legal Guide. It is a pleasure to hear their stories and share them with you in our publication. During the year, we also host several faceto-face events, including social receptions and roundtable panel discussions, in partnership with leading institutions serving the legal,           Time after time, I have seen attendees at these in-person events exchange business cards, talk about their current cases, and

SOUTH FLORIDA LEGAL GUIDE 2016


| PUBLISHER’S NOTE |

LET’S CELEBRATE A few days ago, I was having an interesting conversation with a small group of people at a holiday cocktail reception. From the conversation, I gathered that one person was Catholic, and I imagine he noticed that I was Jewish. As we parted, I turned to him and (in a politically incorrect way) said, “Have a merry Christmas and a good holiday season.” He immediately replied, “Thank you and a happy Hanukah to you.” We both felt good about expressing our wishes for the holidays in a way that respects the faiths we both follow. It was not surprising that after this short exchange, there was no thunder from heaven, and the earth did not stand still. None of the others present in our small group felt threatened in the slightest. After all, most intelligent people understood that hearing a prayer or the mention of a religious celebration is not a cause for concern. In fact, it’s a sign of maturity in a nation where our founding fathers made sure to include “freedom of religion” in the Bill of Rights. All this is a preface for my own rejection of all the lawsuits we see that condemn any practice of religious belief in public spaces. If a football player kneels in the end zone after scoring a touchdown, how can that be bad?

12

SOUTH FLORIDA LEGAL GUIDE 2016

If a coach wants to inspire his players with a pregame prayer, what damage can that cause? Today, there are fanatics around the world who use force to compel “non-believers” to convert to their faith. But every major religion – including Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism – condemns violence in the strongest possible terms. Instead, they echo the Golden Rule or ethic of reciprocity that is a moral maxim or principle of altruism found in nearly every human culture and religion, “Do not impose on others what you do not wish for yourself.” So, let’s go back to the fundamentals and cultivate a spirit of tolerance and acceptance of our religious and cultural diversity. So, to all of you: Happy Hanukah Merry Christmas Happy Kwanzaa Happy Eid-ul-Fitr And I have special message for those who do not celebrate (or believe in these types of celebrations): Give thanks to those that do believe for your annual holiday vacation!

LEGAL TRENDS FOR 2016

We asked several of our Top Attorneys, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What trend will have the most impact on your practice in 2016?â&#x20AC;? Here are their responses.

JOHN ARRASTIA, JR. Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Arrastia Capote Partners I expect to see the continued increase of arbitrated matters in 2016, especially in larger domestic commercial disputes as well as international matters. Several important factors      "    #           as an alternative dispute resolution mechanism, including having the arbitrators decide      +               the role and scope of arbitration in the last several years with the U.S. Supreme Court issuing some important decisions. Third, practically speaking, the arbitration forums have made a greater effort to have a presence and provide resources in Miami for both international and domestic arbitration, in keeping with its position as a world business hub. Lastly, the executive and judiciary branches are making South Florida a hospitable place for arbitration, with the Eleventh Judicial Circuit creating an International Commercial Arbitration Court and the Florida Legislature revising and updating the Arbitration Code. I think that these points dovetail with an increased familiarity with arbitration among parties and their counsel to support a continued increase in larger 2016 arbitrations.

DONNA M. BALLMAN Labor and Employment Donna M. Ballman, P.A. The criminalization of employment is the biggest trend in Florida law that will affect employees in 2016. Floridaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new Computer Abuse and Data Recovery Act has zero protection against employer unauthorized access of employee computers and devices. It only protects computers owned by businesses. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meant to prevent hacking, but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s some nasty language in there that allows employers to sue employees for any â&#x20AC;&#x153;unauthorizedâ&#x20AC;? access of a computer. Your â&#x20AC;&#x153;authorizedâ&#x20AC;? access

  and then print out the emails you sent to HR complaining about discrimination or blowing the whistle on illegal activity before you leave, you can possibly be sued. Employees may have to print out their evidence of discrimination or        "         that employers are already trying to use to put employees in jail. The Computer Fraud and Abuse Act is also a law that was geared to hackers. The National Stolen Property and Economic Espionage Acts have also been used against employees. Employers are successfully prosecuting former employees if they think trade secrets were stolen. Basically, your employer wants to make violating your trade              This trend toward criminalization, along with increased imposition of non-compete agreements on everyone from the CEO to the janitor, is a frightening trend that, if allowed to continue, will result in the return of    5

ROGER BERNSTEIN Immigration Bernstein Osberg-Braun PL A growing Miami-China business connection is leading to a new wave of immigration in South Florida. Increasingly, Chinese nationals are investing in real estate developments in Miami to secure a path to U.S. citizenship. This trend began to gain steam in mid-2015 and will, most likely, speed ahead in 2016. The Chinese interest in South Florida is largely tied to an explosion in the number of projects being offered under the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program. Under this federal program, foreigners who invest at least $500,000 in qualifying EB-5 projects become U.S. residents. About 85 percent of those investors come from China. As a result, more savvy Chinese investors are drawn to Miami as it surfaces as a top U.S. city for EB-5 investment. Case in point: CCCC International Capital Management Group Inc., a Chinese-based construction company, is planning a nearly $1 billion mixed-use development in Miamiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brickell Financial District. CCCC plans to raise up to $350 million in EB-5 capital by promoting the project among Chinese investors. I am fortunate to be involved in the CCCC project, as my regional center, American Life Investments LLC, is sponsoring the development. The regional center will ensure the project meets all the EB-5 requirements and safeguard the investors. This large-scale construction would create nearly 9,000 permanent jobs, inject close to $1 billion into our local economy, attract wealthy Chinese investors to our city and create a substantial stream of commerce between South Florida and China.

JOHN CRABTREE Appellate Crabtree & Auslander If we see alimony reform pass the state Legislature this session, we will likely also see an ensuing â&#x20AC;&#x201D;temporaryâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;spike in family law appeals regarding the construction of the new law.

RANA M. GORZECK Real Estate Ward Damon Since my real estate practice is focused on large commercial and industrial transactions, an increase in 1031 transactions across the income-producing property spectrum would have the most impact for my practice in 2016. After seeing very few 1031 transactions from 2008 through 2012, I noticed an increase of these transactions in 2013, resulting from the pent-up need of sellers to sell and buyers with cash to purchase properties. Then in 2014, the 1031 industry grew steadily. Today, it is not unusual for a blue-chip real property to attract a long line of suitors, with the winning bidder often    8   <

NINA GREENE Franchise Genovese Joblove & Battista, P.A. This past year, the franchise community was closely monitoring whether the U.S. National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) would create a new â&#x20AC;&#x153;joint employerâ&#x20AC;? standard, disposing of the standard that has been in place for years in favor of a more broad and ambiguous standard. The decades-long requirement for two or more entities to be considered joint employers, such that they would be jointly liable for employee matters, has been that they had to share in matters governing the essential terms and conditions of employment and exercise direct and immediate control over the employees. As of August 27, 2015, the NLRB changed that longstanding requirementâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;in Browning-Ferris Indus. of California, Inc.â&#x20AC;&#x201D;to an economic realities test, which leaves the franchise community guessing as to how the new standard will be applied. With this change, franchisors will be forced to evaluate, on a case by case basis, whether the employees of their franchisees will be deemed their employees, and thus, become responsible for them. Under this new test, there simply is no predictability or certainty regarding who is an employer, and we 8              {|\} PATRICIA LEBOW Commercial Litigation Broad and Cassel

THORNTON M. â&#x20AC;&#x153;TIMâ&#x20AC;? HENRY Trust and Estate Planning Jones, Foster, Johnston & Stubbs, P.A. I am already seeing the impact of the higher estate tax exempt amounts, where clients with less than $10,000,000 per couple (or $5,000,000 individually) and little chance of increases in their estate amounts have no need to (and are not) doing any advanced planning with irrevocable trusts. I also believe that too much reliance is being put on â&#x20AC;&#x153;portabilityâ&#x20AC;? in keeping plans simple, rather than relying on credit shelter trusts and/or marital (QPITable) trusts. Double-step-up in basis issues abound.

The trend that will have the most impact on our commercial litigation practice in 2016 will be businesses litigating over non-competes, intellectual property, contractual disputes and the like.

GREGORY L. MAYBACK Intellectual Property Mayback & Hoffman, P.A. The adverse effect that Alice Corporation Pty. LTD. v. CLS Bank International et al., has had on business method, software, and computer patents will continue to plague start-up companies, draining them of scarce capital.

LAURA DAVIS SMITH Family and Marital Law Greene Smith & Associates, P.A. As we look toward 2016, trends affecting family lawyers will likely include emerging same-sex marriage and divorce issues, running the gamut from prenuptial agreements to divorce settlements, following the U.S. Supreme Courtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2015 landmark ruling in the Obergefell case. We will all be forging our way through the new landscape together, dealing with nomenclature changes, a new population of clients and family structures, and increasing acceptance of same-sex matters into the fray of family law litigation. We will also see more of the active pro se litigation movement, with more and more parties taking on their own representation, often to their detriment and to the frustration of the court systems. To assist in meeting the great needs of the courts and litigants, a trend of increasing pro bono assistance will hopefully follow, with lawyers giving more of their time and treasure to the cause. The mentoring of young lawyers is also likely to gain increased support, as more seasoned practitioners conclude that it is important to support those â&#x20AC;&#x153;coming upâ&#x20AC;? in the profession and to lead by example. ALAN WEINSTEIN Criminal Defense/Criminal Law        I anticipate that 2016 will see an even greater shift by the U.S. Justice Department away from drug offenses and into computer crimes, especially those linked to identify theft of some sort. While this shift in focus by the government has been ongoing since 2000, I believe that the Justice Department will defer far more drug cases to state prosecution, and focus its resources on the explosion of identity theft crimes. That shift will impact on the types of cases I am asked to defend, the complexity of the preparation of those cases, and the length of time    <           `   as well as the prospective clientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to pay the requisite fees those types of cases engender.

Get the Insurance Coverage the Gecko and Flo Promised You

I

nsurance touches all of us every day, usually without us even giving it a second thought. A gecko educates us about the ease of obtaining it, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Floâ&#x20AC;? has become the most popular spokesperson on the airwaves. Yet, notwithstanding the ubiquitous presence of insurance in almost every aspect of nearly every transaction, most of us do not identify â&#x20AC;&#x201C; let alone focus â&#x20AC;&#x201C; on its application to a particular event or its availability as a resource. The failure to do so may be costly if the otherwise careful practitioner inadvertently jeopardizes the clientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s potential right to recover insurance proceeds. Such failures are particularly critical, because most of us recognize that it will only be there through effective and experienced advocacy. Insurance coverage is implicated in nearly every claim made by or against a client. Often however, attorneys are so focused on the task at hand, they routinely fail to recognize that coverage may exist under a policy or assume that the claim is excluded or do not even appreciate that there may be coverage for a particular claim or event. From the outset, you should identify and obtain copies of all insurance policies that may be applicable to the claim. Although this step appears rudimentary, failing to recognize the existence of an insurance policy and possible insurance coverage at the outset of your representation could be detrimental to your clientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legal rights      X                      a full and complete copy of all policies is often times not readily discernable, and because an accurate determination of the applicable coverages is dependent on an analysis of a full and complete copy of the policy and all endorsements, even acquiring the policy is often fraught with complications. $                new policy forms, such as cyber-liability policies, now provide coverage for the cost of investigating allegations against the insured, including the costs of experts and forensic review. These expenses, however, are often covered only if the insurance company is given prompt notice before these costs are incurred. Consequently, making the correct determination based on the appropriate analysis from the outset will be outcome determinative for your client. In addition, all insurance policies have conditions or duties imposing certain obligations regarding notice of a claim. Once again, the failure to appreciate and properly advise your client as to these conditions and requirements will jeopardize your clientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right to coverage. A delayed or late noticed claim will at a minimum impact the administration and resolution of your clientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s claim and at worse will give the insurance company a legal basis for outright denial of your claim. In the context of property insurance, the reasons for the delayed notice generally do not matter and can create an automatic presumption of prejudice in favor of the insurance company. The burden then shifts to an insured to overcome that 6X              within an insurance policy, you may not recognize limitations that restrict reporting of the claim. In fact, the policy may impose 134

time limitations that are different from those conventionally assumed based on the applicable statutes of limitations yet are fully enforceable nevertheless. The failure to recognize these limitations and to timely advise your client appropriately may result in a denial of coverage where your client was otherwise entitled to         Interpreting an insurance policy in and of itself can be as daunting as trying to learn a new language. The syntax and meaning of the terms of art in insurance policies have developed over dozens of years resulting in a prose that is poetic to the skilled reader and poison to the inexperienced novice. Under Florida law, insurance contracts must be construed in accordance with the plain language of the policy. If the relevant policy language is susceptible to more than one reasonable interpretation, one providing coverage and the other limiting coverage, the insurance policy is considered ambiguous. These and other rules of construction may militate in favor of coverage where other similar rules dictate otherwise. Success for your client is rarely dependent on identifying clear coverage provisions but rather recognizing ambiguities that are only            For example, the policy may exclude coverage for a direct            X    <  provide coverage for the ensuing damage that occurred as a result of the construction defect. This subtle distinction means that the policy may not cover damage for the defect itself but will cover the resulting damage. Failing to understand this distinction based on a plain reading of the policy and based on a common understanding of the coverage provisions and exclusions would lead to the incorrect and costly assumption that the policyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exclusion for construction defects is the end of the story. Failing to appreciate the symmetry and interplay between and among coverage provisions, limitations, and exclusions will severely disadvantage your client and prejudice the clientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entitlement to seek coverage for a loss or procure a defense for a claim. Accordingly, both the astute property owner and careful lawyer who provides good counsel should recognize the value of engaging an experienced and knowledgeable insurance counsel from the outset to address the present and potential insurance issues. Michael J. Higer is a partner and Gina Clausen Lozier is an associate on Berger Singermanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dispute Resolution Team, where they focus on insurance Litigation.
