Jeffrey Harrington graduated from a top-tier university in Southern California, which he attended on a merit scholarship. Jeffrey concentrated his legal studies on corporate law and international business transactions. Through his academic achievement, he was awarded a coveted and extremely competitive clerkship with Clifford Chance in Barcelona, Spain. Jeffrey also studied international law in France and Argentina as part of his degree program. After finishing his juris doctorate, Jeffrey moved to South Florida and worked for an international manufacturing company, where his duties included drafting/reviewing contracts, import/export, labor law, compliance, collections, and disputes. Also, before making the move to Palm Beach County, Jeffrey worked as an in-house advisor for a real estate brokerage firm handling transactions, joint ventures, investor matters, developer matters, and disputes.
Before becoming an attorney, Jeffrey taught Rhetoric & Writing at San Diego State University. As a graduate student, Jeffrey moved to Spain where he mastered Spanish and made important foreign contacts. Since that experience, he has maintained close ties with Europe and South America, and added a working knowledge of both French and Portuguese to his fluent Spanish.
Jeffrey's Palm Beach County practice focuses on general business and real estate law, both transactions and disputes, and his niche is international transactions.
