Meet Fernanda Panizza, Biz Latin Hub’s Country Coordinator and Corporate Lawyer in Uruguay. Fernanda has vast experience in business counseling for foreign and national companies. She specializes in corporate, business and labor law in Uruguay.
Fernanda was born in Montevideo, the capital city of Uruguay, and since deciding to become a lawyer, has found her vocation in corporate counseling.
Such was the case that when she graduated from the University of the Republic as a Doctor in Law and Social Sciences, she began her Master’s Degree in Corporate Law from the University of Montevideo, where she graduated with Honors.
After that, she did a Post Graduate Degree in Applied Labor Law in the University of Montevideo.
Background in corporate law in Uruguay
Before she started working with Biz Latin Hub, Fernanda worked in two large legal firms in Uruguay, where she gained knowledge and professional experience in corporate law. This made her want to take on new challenges, both personal and professional.
Fernanda appreciates that giving counsel to a client is a task that carries great responsibility, since the client fully trusts the professional in their recommendations and advice.
“It is of great importance to develop a trusting relationship between the professional and the client” she says. “The client must be taken care of and assisted at all times; we must show commitment and professionalism, as this is critical for a long-lasting relationship.”
Further education and travel
Currently, Fernanda is a member of the Uruguayan Bar Association and an assistant professor of Labor and Corporate Law at Uruguay’s University of the Republic.
She believes that the continuous study for being up-to-date is very important so as to work with responsibility.
This year, she is planning to do a Post Graduate Degree in International Tax Law to complete her professional training.
In her free time, Fernanda spends time with her family and friends, and when her profession allows it, she likes to travel. “The key is to travel once a year to gain energy, to get to know new cultures and to return to daily activities with drive,” she says.
