. As a Director and Senior Vice President of Pacific International Equities, Inc., which, during his 26 year tenure, was Miami Beach’s largest, luxury, condominium, high-rise developer, he oversaw the acquisition, planning, design, development, and marketing of over 4,500 units with a market value exceeding $750,000,000.

Given his experience, Mr. Shapiro has recently been asked by the University of Miami School of Law to assist its LLM Program in Real Property Development, which led to his being appointed to its Adjunct Faculty as its Developer in Residence. Working with law students and faculty, he lectures and assists students and professors in the classroom setting, where he present the client’s point of view and the reality of the real estate development industry, which complements the theoretical legal aspects learned by students through their law classes.
Because of his broad development experience, particularly in the field of South Florida condominiums, he was invited by Florida’s pre-eminent condominium and association legal expert, Gary Poliakoff, Esquire, to edit his book, “New Neighborhoods: a Consumer's Guide to Condominium, Co-op, and HOA Living.”
