Miami, FL – International yacht and business law firm Robert Allen Law is pleased to announce the addition of two new team members: attorney Cristina Campelo and Public Relations and Marketing Director Sharon Abramson.

Campelo’s areas of focus will include yacht law, immigration law, business immigration, crew visas, crew employment agreements, charter agreements, international business compliance, trademarks and foreign investments. She is admitted to the Washington State Bar, and she is also an attorney in Venezuela and Spain. Campelo, whose practice focuses on federal and international matters, will be based in Miami but also work out of the firm’s Fort Lauderdale office at Bahia Mar Yachting Center.

Abramson previously worked in marketing at Denison Yacht Sales and was the director of marketing and public relations at the Marine Industries Association of South Florida. Prior to that, she spent 12 years in newspapers and publishing, including 8 years at the Palm Beach Post. She will be based in Fort Lauderdale. She will oversee Robert Allen Law’s public relations, boat show events, email marketing, website, social media and other marketing efforts.

“Both Cristina and Sharon bring valuable skills and expertise to the table,” said Bob Allen, the firm’s founding partner. “Cristina’s background makes her a valuable asset in dealing with international clients on a variety of issues, and Sharon’s firsthand knowledge of the media industry and familiarity with the yachting industry will be extremely valuable as well.”

Campelo graduated from Universidad Metropolitana in Caracas, Venezuela and has master’s degrees in business law and Spanish law from Universidad de Alcala in Madrid, Spain. She also received a master’s degree in law, magna cum laude, from Florida Coastal School of Law. She is a member of the International Yacht Brokers Association, Marine Industries Association of South Florida, Young Professionals in Yachting and American Immigration Lawyers Association.
