Statement on Recent Natural Disasters in Latin America, the Caribbean and the United States
CAMBRIDGE, MASSACHUSETTS, September 20, 2017- Laspau is fortunate to work with an amazing community of talented individuals and institutions across the Americas. Over the past month, natural disasters such as hurricanes in the Caribbean and the southern United States and the earthquakes in Mexico have taken a heavy toll on many of our colleagues and friends.
