Luis joined Carters in June 2018 after completing his articles with the firm and being called to the Ontario Bar. While articling with Carters, Luis gained experience in the areas of corporate and commercial law, civil litigation, wills and estates, real estate, and charity and not-for-profit law. 

Prior to joining the firm, Luis worked in the financial services industry in Toronto and Montreal for over nine years, gaining experience in a wide variety of transactions involving both private and public issuers, with particular emphasis on alternative investments in the exempt market, and in a variety of roles, such as a licensed investment representative approved by the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) and previously as a proprietary trader.

Luis has a broad perspective of both the civil and the common law traditions, having previously worked as legal counsel at the Office of the President and Cabinet in Venezuela, where he advised on matters related to government-sponsored programs, pensions and litigation dealing with public service employees.
