I am a legal advisor, legal designer, and entrepreneur with a background in banking and business, based in Panama City. I truly believes that access to justice and legal services should be more flexible, collaborative, client-focused, and more technology-enabled.After spending 15 years in the corporate and investment banking industry, working for several local and multinational banks such as Citi and HSBC, I became a highly experienced on consumer and corporate banking products.Driven by my passion for innovation and transformation, in 2019 I founded Innovativ Law www.innovativlaw.com, a boutique law firm with a fresh perspective, specialized in alternative legal services, which offers legal advice to entrepreneurs and startups. As an innovation centered organization, we use design-thinking methodologies to design creative solutions to legal and business problems.
