Jeff Giametta Joins Davis Wright Tremaine LLP

Date: 09/26/13

Jeff Giametta, most recently an in-house attorney with E. & J. Gallo Winery, has joined the nationally recognized food and beverage team at Davis Wright Tremaine LLP. He will practice in the firm’s Portland, Oregon, office.

At Gallo, Giametta built and managed a team of regulatory professionals who handled marketing and promotions compliance activities nationwide. At DWT, he will lead a similar team to serve the firm’s restaurant, hotel, and alcohol beverage supplier clients in licensing, permitting, and compliance projects.

“Jeff’s management experience in solving alcohol regulatory and licensing needs will be extraordinary valuable to our clients,” said Jesse Lyon, chair of Davis Wright’s food and beverage practice.

DWT’s nationally respected practice is widely known for its client-oriented, practical approach to alcohol beverage regulatory and policy issues. “Combined with the recent addition of former WineAmerica general counsel Cary Greene, Jeff’s arrival will help us continue building out a group that provides the finest alcohol regulatory services offered by any firm in the country,” said Lyon, “including cost-effective paralegal resources for licensing and permitting work in the Pacific Northwest.”

Giametta’s diverse experience includes directing the strategy of Gallo’s marketing, advertising, and promotions compliance activities, with an approach that balances business client needs with an evolving regulatory environment.

“The group at Davis Wright is providing extraordinary service to its clients, and I am thrilled to be a part of the team,” said Giametta. “The resources on the DWT alcohol regulatory team are tremendous, and I am proud to be able to build upon the foundation that Jess and others at the firm have developed over the past 30 years.”

In its most recent guide to “America’s Leading Lawyers for Business,” Chambers USA listed Davis Wright Tremaine among the top firms nationwide in the Food & Beverages: Alcohol category.

Giametta received his B.A. in Biology from New York University and his J.D. from Albany Law School. He is currently licensed to practice in the state of Washington and is in the process of applying for Oregon admission.
