FERRELL LAW (then known as FERRELL SCHULTZ )
Managing Partner Argentina Office
2002 - 2003
Managing Partner for Argentina of this now extinct Miami based international law firm then headed by the late Milton Ferrell Jr. Major responsibilities were PR, marketing, and new business development of the newly established practice in Argentina (in association with the prestigious Allende & Brea local law firm). In a short period of time, and in the middle of one of Argentina’s worst economic crises, the firm produced extremely strong results.
The Argentina office was mentioned in several publications in the U.S. by some of the top partners of the firm as an example of how a foreign legal firm should enter the difficult Argentine legal market, especially at a time of national crisis.
As a result, I was designated by the Firm to represent it within the organizing committee which was in charge of the reception held in Miami for the then Vice-President of Argentina, Daniel Scioli, in his first official visit to the US.
As the managing partner for Ferrell in Argentina, task combined overseeing legal projects from local clients or US clients with interests in the region, both
in the US and Argentina, promoting the firm's activities, engage and incorporate new high-level clients, and organize events and PR to generate new leads.
