Eric P. Gros-Dubois, Esq.
Founding Partner

Eric Gros-Dubois is the founder of EPGD Business Law, head of the firm’s corporate, estate planning, and tax practice, and manages the firm’s Washington D.C. office. With a JD and MBA, and a specialization in finance, Eric is able to step back and view the legal world through a commercial lens while also acting as a trusted business advisor for his clients.

Before founding EPGD, Mr. Gros-Dubois’s areas of concentration included business transactions, tax controversies, and estate & trust planning. While at a prominent firm located in Washington, DC, his path led him to Miami, FL where he handled commercial transactions and business litigation. While attending law school, he spent a summer with a non-profit organization, interned with a private equity group, and devoted a semester to the Federal Tax clinic representing taxpayers before the U.S. Tax Courts, laying the foundation for the future of EPGD Business Law.

When asked to identify his thoughts on practicing law, Eric answers without hesitation: “People aren’t hiring us to solve legal problems, they’re hiring us to solve personal problems.” With his hands-on approach, Eric builds strong client-attorney relationships and finds himself intimately involved in each of his cases even after they’ve been resolved. Despite his heavy work schedule, Eric still finds the time to be an outstanding member of the community, including the following current and past positions;

  • Executive Committee Member and a Board Member of the Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce;
  • Former President of the Rotary Club of Brickell;
  • Former President of BNI Coral Gables;
  • Former President of his homeowner’s association;
  • Supporter of many fundraisers devoted to the community.

Eric also regularly teaches other lawyers for their continuing legal education, presents to The American Immigration Lawyers Association, and more.
