TIFFANY N. COMPRÉS is Of Counsel to Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg, P.A., resident in the Miami office.
Ms. Comprés handles cross-border transactions and disputes, with particular expertise in fresh produce and art/antiquities in international trade. Her fluency in four languages and practice experience in Italy, France and the United States uniquely situate her to help clients in these historically “handshake” businesses to protect their interests in today’s compliance-focused environment. Using pragmatic approaches to deal making while also taking the long view, she is able to assist in building relationships in industries where repeat business is essential.
Ms. Comprés has been active in the fresh produce industry for more than 20 years and has first-hand knowledge of the business as both a buyer and a seller. She is skilled at negotiating and drafting agreements for the transfer of fresh produce across borders, including distribution agreements, consignment agreements and grower’s agent agreements. She also has substantial experience with the Perishable Agricultural Commodities Act, which protects sellers of fresh produce to the U.S. market. She represents clients in PACA-related matters in federal court, before Department of Agriculture administrative courts and in international arbitration.
Ms. Comprés also has a deep understanding of the challenges and pitfalls that affect stakeholders in the art and antiquities world, not only from the legal side but also as an artist and collector herself. She represents foreign artists doing business with U.S. galleries, foreign galleries engaging U.S. artists, and parties in cross-border art and antiquities sales, consignments and loans. She also works with art funds, groups of investors that join together to purchase works of art or fund the creation of a new work.
Ms. Comprés holds a J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center, advanced degrees in economic globalization and international business law from the Sorbonne Law School at the Université de Paris, and a B.A. from the University of Miami.
