VENAMBAR is a nonprofit, voluntary bar association established in 2013, aimed at aligning and attending the needs of legal professionals in the United States with an interest in Venezuelan issues. The association aims to create a bridge between Venezuelan, U.S. lawyers and the Venezuelan business community in the U.S. by serving as a platform for networking experiences and dialog among lawyers, bar associations, law students, members of the U.S. judiciary and academia. VENAMBAR actively supports the local community through pro bono legal assistance and civic outreach.
Originally from Venezuela, Jorge Guttman is bilingual in Spanish and English. As a result, his business litigation practice has a strong Latin American emphasis, in which he represents multinational clients in cross-border disputes. Guttman initially served as a founding member of VENAMBAR.
