After law school, Mr. Romero interned for, and was later hired by, the law firm of Mathews & Weisser. Working under the regular and direct supervision of the firm's lead litigator, a California attorney and English barrister, Mr. Romero was exposed to a wide variety of litigation in the areas of taxation, securities law, and white-collar fraud, litigating matters pending before American and British courts.
