Meet Minerva Bellorin – ACZALAW Nicaragua

What is your primary area of practice, and what drew you to it?

Advice to foreign investors, focused on Business and Corporate law. This area requires us to be continuously studying, searching, and learning as new rules as well as new requirements and procedures are always in progress. We must be very creative and innovative within the boundaries of the law, ethics, and responsibility.  We must also be curious and passionate about what we do. One of the most important keys is ‚ understanding the core business of each client to provide an accurate advice.

Tell us about a recent memorable project, matter, or case that you’ve worked on. What was fun? What was challenging?

A merger or acquisition of assets in cases where the core business is highly regulated (e.g., Telecommunications or Banks) implies a big challenge due to many administrative rules and special procedures applicable to carry out a successful closing of the process as the transfer of licenses, if allowed.  We have to previously visualize all steps to follow carefully and in the correct order. A lapsus can be deadly. Every new project always is a new entertainment to discover and enjoy.

Since the pandemic, what is one thing that has improved in your life?

A total change of perspective, mind reset at all. I clearly learned that there are no important things, there are only important people. I focus on people’s strengths (not their weaknesses) on their positive aspects.  It is imperative to listen to our clients and to each one of the team members to have all the correct information that allows us to build new targeted strategies according to what clients expect to find and receive from a law firm.

And now, a wild-card question: What’s your favorite place to visit and why?

I like to spend time in open spaces and enjoy nature, fauna, forest, and water (lakes, rivers, see, lagoons). This is my special and dreamed space, to have the right moment to think and meditate as well as to recharge.  It relaxes me, inspires me, and makes me creative.
