He was trial counsel in the grounding of the M/V Regina, an Italian-built ferry that carried passengers and automobiles and that grounded off Mona Island between the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico.

Mr. Nevares broke the limitation of liability and Federal Judge Laffitte ordered the removal of the vessel at a cost of approximately $12 million.
