NEW INTERNATIONAL FOCUS LAW FIRM OPENS IN PHOENIX
PHOENIX, Feb. 9, 2015—Apfel and Associates, a new law firm focusing on International law, has opened an office in Phoenix. Matthew Apfel and Angelo Torrealba, the two primary counsels, have practiced law in the U.S., Australia, China, Europe and South America. They decided to open this office because of the changing nature of international business needs in the Valley.
“When you hire us, you receive the benefit of us having had vast experience representing clients, including start-ups, in different parts of the world,” said Matthew Apfel, senior counsel of Apfel and Associates. “We understand the different cultures and business strategies around the globe and our language skills-fluent in Chinese, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish—have created a major bond in working with clients on international litigation, business analysis, corporate transactions and health care law.
According to the other partner Angelo Torrealba, who also has an MBA, “We pride ourselves into taking into account broader cultural, economic and legal realities by providing high quality, creative and approachable legal activity for our clients to advance and achieve results. Our firm gives a fresh approach in handling legal matters.”
Between the two partners, they have worked for such establishments as the U.S. State Department, Canadian Embassy, Venezuela’s Criminal Court Justice, Australia’s Minter Ellison Law Firm and Australia’s Supreme Court Justice.
Matthew Apfel specializes in public international law, international arbitration and investment disputes and business transactions, and civil suits against foreign sovereign states in domestic court. In a recent case, Apfel was the international specialist on a team that represented individual marines suing Iran as a result of the Beirut barracks bombing.
Angelo Torrealba also focuses on international issues. He is a well-known immigration specialist and a human rights advocate, especially for the Latin-American community.
The new Apfel and Associates office is located at 2375 East Camelback Road, Suite 600, Phoenix, AZ 85016. Call 602-717-310, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.apfelandassociates.com for further information.
