What is a typical day like in our office in Argentina?
Every day I check what is pending and needs urgent response until noon, no matter if it is a claim in Court or a negotiation. Sometimes I have to be at Court for a hearing or presentation. In the afternoon, I contact the partner, other members of the staff and clients to check if there is something that I need to take care of. We are in contact every day, despite the current situation.
Describe Kennedys in three words:
Dynamism. Diversity. Opportunity.
What are the strategic priorities for your team at the moment?
At the office, I think that helping and collaborate with each other. With clients, to provide the right solution on any kind of work matter at any time.
How has your career grown since starting at Kennedys?
My growth has been in knowledge about the insurance market and the legal issues related – every day something new arises to look into and learn.
