As a registered Government Affairs Agent in New Jersey, Guillermo helps clients achieve their governmental, media, and business development objectives. As a former federal law clerk, Guillermo also provides local counsel expertise to clients involved in Hatch-Waxman and other complex litigation in the United States District Court of New Jersey.

Most recently, Guillermo served as Associate Counsel to Governor Philip D. Murphy, where he gained in-depth regulatory experience. Both emerging and seasoned companies in such industries as cannabis, cryptocurrency, renewable energy, and technology turn to Guillermo for guidance regarding shifting legal and public policy issues. 

In Governor Murphy’s front office, Guillermo handled legislative initiatives, overseeing a portfolio of departments and agencies that included Treasury, Banking & Insurance, Transportation, Economic Development, Environmental Protection, Motor Vehicle, and the Board of Public Utilities. Guillermo also handled appointments in Counsel’s Office and oversaw the Governor’s vetting process for judicial and prosecutorial candidates across the State.

Previously, Guillermo served as Corporate Counsel at Greenskies Renewable Energy, the largest commercial and industrial solar energy developer in the United States.

After law school, Guillermo served as a law clerk to the Honorable Esther Salas, United States District Judge, District of New Jersey.

During law school, Guillermo worked in the Intergovernmental Affairs Group of Governor Chris Christie, as the Governor’s Executive Fellow from Rutgers University’s Eagleton Institute of Politics.

In the community, Guillermo has served as Trustee of the Hispanic Bar Association of New Jersey; Deputy Regional President of the Hispanic National Bar Association; Board Member of the New Jersey Legal & Education Empowerment Project, Waterfront Project and Full Court Peace.

Also a noted adviser on U.S.-Cuba relations, Guillermo is actively involved with the Americas Society/Council of the Americas, Cuba Study Group, and Cuban American Alliance for Leadership & Education. During the 2016 presidential election, Guillermo served on the Caribbean Working Group for the Hillary for America Campaign, focusing on U.S. geopolitics and Cuba. He writes, speaks, and counsels clients on the macro and micro opportunities that exist on the island.

Guillermo received a B.A. from Hamilton College and a J.D. from Rutgers University School of Law. In law school, he was Articles Editor of the Rutgers Law Review, President of the Student Bar Association, and Vice President of the Association of Latin American Law Students. At graduation, he was awarded the American Bar Association & American Law Institute Prize, an honor recognizing the graduate who best represents a combination of scholarship and leadership.

Representative Matters

Pro Bono
We represented an underage domestic violence victim against her abusive ex-boyfriend by proving three predicate acts of violence—assault, harassment, and criminal mischief—and convinced the court that our client lived with an ongoing fear of imminent threat, thereby proving the second element required for issuance of a Final Restraining Order (“FRO”). After issuance of the FRO, we alerted the court of an outstanding warrant out for the defendant’s arrest and had him restrained in court, much to the satisfaction of our client and her mother.
