Juan Monteverde practices law in New York City and has a strong background in shareholder rights. Throughout his career, he has earned a reputation for opposing deals involving a change in control, such as mergers or buyouts, and securing millions of dollars for shareholders. In the post-Dodd-Frank period, he was also a pioneer in proxy compensation disclosure, pushing for the executives above to fully disclose their income.
Juan is the founding partner of Monteverde & Associates PC, which has offices in the Empire State Building. He is the leader of a group of accomplished lawyers who are also experts in his field. The goal of Monteverde & Associates is to defend shareholders against malfeasance and business mistakes. He is proud to fight for the little guys, going up against major corporations that think they are above the law.
Clients are frequently stockholders who have suffered financial losses due to corporate wrongdoing or regular consumers who have fallen prey to false or overtly misleading advertising. The team can advocate for clients and ensure businesses are held accountable at any level, from local trial and appellate courts to the U.S. Supreme Court. No one is above the law, which is his philosophy, captures his true character in court.
From 2010 until 2016, Juan Monteverde spent six years as a partner and the head of the department handling mergers and acquisition litigation at Faruqi & Faruqi LLP before establishing his own business.
A national law firm called Faruqi & Faruqi, specializing in class action lawsuits for consumers and investors, played several important roles in influencing Monteverde's legal knowledge. The trial team often celebrated significant successes thanks to the firm's dedication to sophisticated litigation in some important stockholder-adjacent specialties.
During his three years as an associate at Levi & Korsinsky, Monteverde represented mutual fund fraud, consumer fraud, and securities fraud victims. In other cases, the protection of shareholders' interests during corporate takeovers or changes in corporate ownership was examined, as well as ERISA violations. Before this, he was employed at the liability defense company Smith Mazure Director Wilkins Young & Yagerman, which specialized in civil litigation. His expertise included product liability, civil rights litigation, and construction law.
While attending law school, Juan Monteverde worked as a summer associate for Diaz Reus LLP for three years. This firm specializes in creative legal strategies in challenging business disputes and official investigations for domestic and foreign clients, including Fortune 500 companies and international banks.
After attending from 2003 to 2005, Monteverde received his law degree from St. Thomas University. He excelled in obtaining his Juris Doctor while engaging in various extracurricular pursuits. He served as president of Plead the 5th, the official law school newspaper, in addition to his roles as staff editor of the Law Review and editor of significant publication decisions. He worked as a tutor in his free time, specializing in constitutional law, property law, and ethics.
