MIAMI (PRWEB) March 03, 2014
Angelika Hunnefeld, a shareholder in the Miami office of the international law firm Greenberg Traurig, has been elected to the Board of Trustees of the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science (formerly the Miami Science Museum). In this role, she will help to further support the mission of the organization as construction of its new facility in downtown Miami’s Museum Park continues.
The new facility, slated to open in 2015, will showcase science and research with global implications as well as cutting-edge technology. As the Miami Science Museum, the organization provided the South Florida community with science education for more than 60 years.
“Having been actively involved with the museum’s programs for several years, I am honored and excited to join its Board of Trustees and begin serving the organization and our community at a higher level,” Hunnefeld said. “At this key turning point in the museum’s evolution, I thank the Board of Trustees for giving me the opportunity to lend my support to the museum so that it can continue to enrich our community’s educational and cultural landscape.”
Deeply involved in the community and the legal industry, Hunnefeld currently serves as Co-Chair of the Women in International Law Committee of the International Law Section of The Florida Bar. She has also served as director of the American Nicaraguan Foundation for the past 11 years.
At Greenberg Traurig, Hunnefeld focuses her law practice in the areas of commercial litigation, international business arbitration and compliance with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. She is also experienced in matters involving multi-jurisdictional issues, enforcement of foreign judgments and enforcement of foreign arbitral awards. She received a law degree magna cum laude from the University of Miami School of Law in 1995 and a bachelor’s degree summa cum laude from Florida International University in 1992.
