We welcome two new members to our Board of Directors. Jurg Zundel, a native of Switzerland, serves as Counsel – Latin America & the Caribbean, Legal Services Division for Caterpillar, Inc. and has been working for Caterpillar since 1993. He has had assignments in Switzerland, Illinios, and Tennessee. Now he supports Latin America and the Caribbean out of Miami. Mr. Zundel holds Swiss and U.S. law degrees, and his legal practice has covered virtually all areas of the law.
His prior philanthropic work includes a pro bono legal project in Kenya, membership on the Peoria, Illinois opera board, and participation in Junior Achievement in Nashville. “I hope that my insights and perspectives as an immigrant will help make a difference at this important moment in history when we are seriously exploring ways to reform immigration.”
Jose Sepulveda, a litigation partner at Stearns, Weaver, Miller, Weissler, Alhadeff & Sitterson, volunteered with AI Justice (then FIAC) while a law student. “I am excited to have been given the opportunity to serve on the board. I look forward to working with the members to further AI Justice’s goals.”
Mr. Sepulveda’s practice focuses on complex business litigation in both state and federal courts, with an emphasis on banking, creditors’ rights, and lender liability claims. Mr. Sepulveda is a graduate of the University of Miami School of Law. He is a member of the Belen Jesuit Preparatory School Alumni Association and the Cuban American Bar Association.
