Eric Gros-Dubois is the founding partner of EPGD Business Law. He is an accomplished lawyer whose practice ranges from Business and Corporate Law, to Tax Law and Trust & Estate Planning.

Eric Gros-Dubois founded EPGD Business Law in 2013 and is the current head of the firm’s corporate, estate planning, and tax practice, and manages the firm’s Miami 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.  He does his best to be solutions oriented, and tries to think like a business owner, not just a lawyer. 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 works to build strong client-attorney relationships and finds himself intimately involved in each of his cases even after they’ve been resolved.

While a partner at a prominent firm located in Washington, DC, his path led him to Miami where he handled commercial transactions and business litigation. As a law student, Eric worked at a non-profit organization, a private equity group, and the Federal Tax clinic representing taxpayers before the U.S. Tax Courts, laying the foundation for the future of EPGD Business Law.

Eric does his best to be an outstanding member of the community. Finally, his hobbies include marathon running, cooking, chess, tennis, and sailing.
