I am a lawyer graduated from the Universidad Nacional de Asuncion and recently I have completed an LL.M. in International and Comparative Law at The George Washington University Law School.

I believe that the key to our national development relies on both the legal and  commercial integration of Paraguay to the world; therefore, I try to keep myself updated with commercial practices and also the legal instruments used at the most important global forums.

I enjoy researching comparative law and using the resulting information to propose legal solutions for both national and international clients.

I am aware of the duty we have as private actors in the development of our country; the national progress is not an exclusive responsibility of public actors.

I am convinced that the practice of law in our country must be revolutionized; I eagerly asume the challenge – and the need – of innovation when it comes to legal issues. Even more than getting positive results, I enjoy the experience acquired in obtaining them.

I try to take the maximum advantage from social networks. With them, I keep myself informed of both national and international news.

My largest professional satisfaction is based on both the tranquillity of the client and the goals we achieve working as a team; I am certain that the group’s success multiplies the benefits of its members.
