My name is Andrea Alterwain Brück, I am a Doctor at Law and Social Sciences and a Public Notary, in both careers graduated from the University of the Republic, School of Law; Magister in Business Law by the University of Montevideo, School of Law with Postgraduate Course in Civil Liability in depth by the University Dámaso A. Larrañaga, School of Law. I also count with several postgraduate courses related among others with the rural, environmental and energetic problematic.
Just from the beginning of the professional activity exercise, I was closely connected to the commercial and business activity in all its forms. I worked for about five years in a recognized Consulting firm, attending national and foreign corporations with respect to the organization, structure, acquisitions, mergers, tax planning and international trade among others.
Subsequent and for over a decade, I legally advised companies and large-sized industries, working together with the real estate, timber, logistic, port and energy sectors. In that period I specialized in counselling all types of rural contracts related to the agricultural – cattle exploitation, as well as contracts related to forestry and mineral activity in all its forms.
From begging of 2013 that I give legal advice to individuals as well as small and medium companies, understanding legal counselling as essential and necessary for informed and safe decision-making.
I know that teamwork is necessary in order to give clients the best response to their concerns and needs. I therefore work with a vast network of colleagues and associated professionals, mainly with specialists in other branches of law such as criminal law, as well as accountants and economists.
