Bander Law has exciting updates for its clients and colleagues!

We moved! Bander Law relocated permanently to 321 Northeast 59th Terrace, Miami. The firm is now its own landlord, and the new location is in the center of the thriving art and design scene in the Lemon City district of Miami. Parking is free in the parking lot at 299 Northeast 59th Terrace, next to the office.

We have a new attorney! In March, Leah Shadle joined the firm. Leah served as in-house counsel to One Laptop Per Child, Inc., an organization created to provide children around the world with a quality, innovative educational program and where she developed extensive experience with regulatory compliance matters. Additionally, she served as Co-Director of New Leaders Council (NLC) Miami, a chapter of a national non-profit, non-partisan organization that prepares, connects, and activates the next generation of leaders in Miami.
