FAMILY TIES D.C. election law firm Sandler, Reiff & Young and Baltimore firm Shapiro Sher Guinot & Sandler have forged an alliance, becoming correspondent firms. Sandler, Reiff & Young will lend national exposure and election law expertise under the guise of former Democratic National Committee General Counsel Joseph Sandler to the Baltimore firm. In turn, midsize Shapiro Sher brings its litigation, business law, and bankruptcy skills to the table. “Our new relationship will allow us to handle new types of matters and larger cases and transactions for our clients,” says Joseph Sandler. The deal was engineered through family ties between the firms: Joseph Sandler’s cousin, Paul Sandler, is a partner at Shapiro Sher. — Marie Beaudette PARTY TIME AT WILEY In 1983, the first cell phone service was rolled out and fiber optic cables started to carry long distance calls between Washington, D.C., and New York. Fittingly, that’s the same year telecom powerhouse Wiley Rein & Fielding opened its doors in the nation’s capital. The firm celebrated its 20th birthday Oct. 30 with an evening reception in the firm’s K Street offices. Founded as Wiley, Johnson & Rein by former Federal Communications Commission Chairman Richard Wiley, who still heads the firm; former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Economic and Business Affairs Bert Rein; and Philip Johnson, the firm started as a 37-lawyer breakaway group from Kirkland & Ellis’s D.C. office. It now has more than 250 attorneys in Washington and Northern Virginia offices. Name partner Fred Fielding, former counsel to then President Reagan, joined in 1986. — Lily Henning FISH & NEAVE’S COO Intellectual property firm Fish & Neave has added William Glasgow as its first chief operating officer. Glasgow, a lawyer, business executive, and venture capitalist, joins the firm in its New York office from venture capital fund Madrona Venture Group, where he was managing and strategic director. Before that, Glasgow founded BCN Data Systems, a wireless data communications joint venture. He also practiced law in Portland, Ore., at Seattle-based Perkins Coie, and as a partner at Oregon’s Stoel Rives. — Christine Hines
