Shapiro law firm to open office in Washington

May 03, 1994|By From Staff Reports

The law firm of Shapiro and Olander has opened an office in Washington, D.C., to add to its headquarters in Baltimore and branch office in Annapolis.

The office is likely to be a major center for the firm's international trade and commerce practice, and it will have a decidedly Latin American bent, the firm said.

The firm recently announced it has hired Luis Guinot Jr., an international specialist and ambassador to Costa Rica under the Bush administration, who will be based in the new office. Mr. Guinot is a frequent lecturer on United States-Latin American relations and trade issues such as NAFTA. Joining Mr. Guinot are Laurence R. Jaffe, who concentrates on corporate law and securities regulation, and two associates.

Dean Olander, Shapiro and Olander's managing partner, said, with the addition of Mr. Guinot, he expected the firm to be representing Latin American governments and businesses as well as U.S. companies trying to do business south of the border.
