On February 28, 2013, the Greater Miami Chapter of the Friends of the Israel defense Forces (FIDF) held its annual dinner, honoring Cesar L. Alvarez, the Executive Chairman of Greenberg Traurig, LLP. Mr. Alvarez was honored as a dedicated advocate and supporter of the State of Israel, and his decades of professional and charitable leadership were cited. GT’s Tel Aviv office is particularly grateful to Cesar for his initial authorization of and continued support for the firm’s Israel practice, and the establishment of the first full-service office of an international law firm in Israel. As Chaim Shacham, the Consul General of Israel to Florida and Puerto Rico, said, “Israel’s special recognition is due to you, Mr. Cesar Alvarez, as the 2013 Honoree of the Year, for the unique and pioneering role you have played in the strengthening of Israel and its special friendship with the United States.

The evening was a huge success, raising over $3,000,000 for FIDF programs benefitting IDF soldiers.

We are very proud to be associated with the firm and with Cesar. Kol Hakavod.
