Jose's firsthand experience with the complex inner workings of major companies and the challenges facing high level executives and in-house counsel is one of his unique differentiators. For more than 20 years, he was a member of senior management of three companies, where he served as chief legal and compliance officer as well as secretary to the Board of Directors of two of the companies. It is precisely this inside knowledge and experience that allows him to appreciate both the business and legal consequences of company strategies and decisions.
Jose has particular experience in media, entertainment and technology law, having served as General Counsel of HBO Latin America and as head of Business & Legal Affairs for Telemundo Network. In these roles, he led complex negotiations with some of the largest media companies in Latin America, closed multi-million dollar programming deals with major studios and independents, and handled development and production deals with producers on numerous shows throughout the region. Jose also has extensive experience in negotiating and closing talent and executive employment and related agreements
