Her mission is to contribute to the transformation of the legal industry and to inspire lawyers around the world.

Changing is always scary, changing is always difficult; but the cost of not changing, that’s scarier to me at this point.

Isabella has a great breadth of knowledge, and we explore a number of topics in our chat today. 
  • How Isabella path was driven by wanting to do things differently
  • How shifting your perspective can spark the start of an innovation journey – in Isabella’s case being seconded to the client’s business opened her eyes to how to communicate in a way that empowers her clients to make the best business decision
  • How in-house lawyers are the cornerstone of transformation in the legal industry, pushing forward change in so many ways
  • How markets such as LATAM are embracing technology to solve business problems
  • What is top of mind for students, clients, and practitioners when it comes to looking at technology and innovation?
