He is as comfortable advising a Colombian client in Spanish, a tech entrepreneur in English as he is ordering a café da manhã in his native Sao Paulo. Fernando brings a unique regional perspective to the practice of law. Fernando has law degrees from some of the best law schools in the world: he graduated from Mackenzie University in Sao Paulo, Brazil and earned his Master of Laws (LL.M) degree from the New York University. Fernando is licensed to practice law both in Brazil and New York.
