Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP partner, Gustavo J. Membiela, has been honored by the South Florida Theatre League as a recipient of a 2020 Remy Award as an Outstanding Board Member. The Remy Awards, named in honor of Remberto Cabrera, the former Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs’ Senior Cultural Administrator and Chief of Cultural Development, are given to the unsung heroes who provide outstanding service behind the scenes of the South Florida Theatre League Community. The award was presented on July 27, 2020 over livestream on Zoom and Facebook Live as part of a fundraiser benefiting local artists and theatre workers who have lost employment during the COVID-19 pandemic.

A litigation partner at Hunton Andrews Kurth’s Miami office, Membiela has been serving as chairman of Area Stage Company, a 30-year-old professional theatre company which includes a professional-level conservatory for young, aspiring performers and a theatre program for people with developmental disabilities.

Membiela is one of three co-chairs of the law firm’s Diversity and Inclusion Program which is charged with the identification, professional development, retention, and promotion of high-potential women and diverse lawyers. In addition, he handles a wide variety of commercial matters, focusing on cross-border disputes, transnational arbitrations, and class action litigation.
