She has conducted proceedings before the Ministry of Labour and advises clients on the scope of Ecuadorian labour law. She has extensive experience in due diligence processes, analysis of the labour consequences of mergers and acquisitions, and the development of labour risk mitigation strategies and compliance plans. She holds a law degree from Universidad de las Américas, and prior to joining the firm she worked as a senior associate at CorralRosales.
