DANTE FASCELL JOINS FINE JACOBSON FIRM, TO HELP EXPAND INTERNATIONAL LAW PRACTICE

 MIAMI, Jan. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Dante B. Fascell, the internationally respected past chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, today joined the Miami law firm of Fine Jacobson Schwartz Nash & Block. The firm's chief executive officer, Bernard Jacobson, announced that Fascell "has joined the firm as counsel to participate in expanding our international practice. He will help us aid our clients in cutting through the maze of regulations and restrictions that often hinder trade and commerce."
 Fascell said he had evaluated numerous opportunities for a law practice after deciding last year to leave Congress after 38 years. "I am excited about joining an organization with tremendous capability and credibility. This is an opportunity to bring the experience gained during my political career into a new practice of my profession."
 Fascell's 19th term representing the 19th Congressional District in South Dade and Monroe counties expired at noon on Jan. 3, and he reported to Fine Jacobson on Jan. 4. He had been a key member of the Democratic House leadership team and a leader in foreign affairs recognized worldwide.
 One reflection of his status is that he now is a senior advisor to the independent Washington-based Center for Strategic and International Studies, where Henry Kissinger and Admiral William J. Crowe Jr. are among the counselors.
 Fascell brings to Fine Jacobson the experience and contacts of 35 years on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, nine years as chairman of the Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe, and an active role in representing the U.S. in the United Nations and in numerous Western Hemisphere forums with many heads of state.
 In welcoming Fascell to active practice in the firm, Jacobson commented, "We expect Dante to be very helpful in advising clients on both in-bound and out-bound international business. He is an expert not only in intergovernmental affairs and treaties but in all aspects of commerce and trade between nations. That expertise will be put to good use here in his home community of Miami, which is one of this nation's three or four cities of true international dimension."
 The addition of Fascell marks a major step in Fine Jacobson's thrust to expand its international practice. Last year the firm joined Interlaw, an international network that includes 45 law firms around the world.
 A long-time friend of many of the firm's principals, Fascell noted, "This firm takes pride in its service to the community as well as to clients. That gives us a mutuality of interests that goes beyond personal financial incentives, though those are also important. I look forward to continuing in service to the community in areas outside of politics."
 Fascell emphasized that he will not lobby government for their firm's clients or represent foreign governments. Rather, he will advise and counsel clients on the laws, mechanisms and access points of international law and commerce.
 Fascell graduated from the University of Miami Law School at age 21, was a combat officer in World War II, and practiced law in Miami until conflicts with his Washington role intervened.
 Fine Jacobson is an expanding full service Florida law firm with offices in Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Tallahassee.
 The Miami address for Fine Jacobson Schwartz Nash & Block is 3600 International Place, 100 Southeast 2nd Street, Miami, Fla. 33131. Telephone is 305-577-4000.
