Alvarez Arrieta & Diaz-Silveira adds estate and wealth preservation private client practice


Boutique corporate-transactional law firm Alvarez Arrieta & Diaz-Silveira has added a private client practice, which includes estate and wealth preservation planning, led by partner Blas Cueto.

In addition, Erik Christensen has joined the firm as an associate and will provide corporate transactional legal services.
Prior to joining Alvarez Arrieta & Diaz-Silveira, Cueto practiced with a prominent boutique estate-planning firm located in Miami, where he assisted both domestic and international clients in implementing their estate planning and taxation strategies. Cueto advises clients and their families on a host of issues, specialising in estate planning, business succession planning, wealth preservation, estate and trust administration, and the implementation of meaningful charitable-giving plans; including the establishment of not-for-profit entities, foundations and charitable trusts.
“Thoughtful estate planning is so much more than the distribution of assets,” says Cueto. “It is the opportunity to define a legacy and establish a path forward for businesses, employees, families and charitable organizations. I believe my area of expertise is a perfect complement to the great work being done at Alvarez Arrieta & Diaz-Silveira, and I look forward to better serving our clients through expanded legal services.”
Christensen has a wide range of experience that includes legal work on international and domestic transactions, mergers and acquisitions, debt and equity offerings, securities and bank regulatory filings, private equity and joint venture investments as well as corporate finance and project finance matters.
Prior to joining Alvarez Arrieta & Diaz-Silveira, Christensen was an associate at Sullivan & Cromwell in New York, where he supported the financial institutions and corporate finance practices. Prior to law school, Christensen negotiated broadcast media agreements for the National Basketball Association.
