Menashe Shapiro

Menashe brings a wealth of experience as an opposition research expert and campaign strategist, and focuses on due diligence, municipal finance, zoning, government contracting and licensing.

He devises strategies for clients designed to achieve objectives with government officials and media, and engages in targeted messaging and strategic communications tailored to specific audiences.

In 2010, Menashe served as the Senior Advisor to Daniel M. Donovan’s campaign for New York State Attorney General. In that capacity, he crafted the policy agenda for the campaign, and briefed the candidate on major issues. He also worked directly with media outlets and coordinated political outreach.

Prior to that, Menashe served as the Deputy Research Director for Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s successful campaign for reelection in 2009, where he focused on issues relating to the investment practices of the city’s $100 billion pension system. This work formed the core substance of the campaign narrative and news reports. From 2003-2009, Menashe served as an attorney at Stull Stull & Brody, where he practiced securities litigation, representing shareholders who have been defrauded in the stock market.

Menashe Shapiro is a cum laude graduate of Yeshiva University (BA, Economics) where he attended as a distinguished Ira Marienhoff Scholar and was named to the Dean’s List. He earned his JD from Cardozo Law School of Yeshiva University.
