His multifaceted practice encompasses a broad spectrum of sectors within the national and global economy, including pharmaceutical, manufacturing, retailers, health care, law firms, entertainment, and service.

Apart from his labor and employment litigation practice, Mr. Figueroa-Matos routinely counsels clients on a variety of day-to-day personnel matters and practices, including planning and execution of reductions in force, restructuring and reorganizations, investigation of harassment and discrimination complaints, disciplinary measures, leaves and accommodations, employee terminations, internal audits, performance management, and executive employment issues.

He focuses on providing clients with strategic and practical advice to manage workplace issues, partnering with clients to obtain outcomes which suit their business and minimize the risk of litigation.

As a member of the Mergers & Acquisitions Practice Team, he provides legal counsel to clients during startups, acquisitions, mergers and closings of operations.

He has had a notable and active participation in litigating complex state cases at the appellate level. He collaborated in the prosecution and defense of multiple injunctive and declaratory relief lawsuits arising from student conflict throughout the University of Puerto Rico’s 11-campus system and which put the University at risk with national and local accrediting agencies.

One of these lawsuits resulted in the landmark Opinion of the Puerto Rico Supreme Court in Universidad de Puerto Rico v. Laborde Torres, 180 D.P.R. 253 (2010), which balances protesters’ and non-protesters’ freedom of speech rights.
