Two years after joining the firm, in 2010, she was promoted to partner of the same practice. De Buerba has participated in many criminal proceedings regarding corporate crime, tax evasion, workplace accidents, fraud, fraudulent conveyance and fraudulent bankruptcy. She has acknowledged expertise in the field of international judicial cooperation due to her participation in many transnational criminal investigations involving requests for international mutual legal assistance.
