Ramiro Monner Sans is currently the Attorney General of the City of Buenos Aires, appointed by the City Mayor and confirmed by the Legislature without any negative votes. He has been successful in avoiding a significant amount of litigation by settling agreements with plaintiffs, looking to solve conflicts and to administer the City's budget in a more effective way.
Previously, he served in the three branches of the City Government, as Vice President of the Judiciary Council, Deputy Secretary of Justice and Legal Advisor to the President of the Legislature. Additionally, he was the first Director of the Judicial Investigation Center.
Monner Sans started his career as a public servant at University of Buenos Aires, where he was Deputy Secretary for Academics of the School of Law (where he promoted a reform that optimized the costs per student), and advisor to the Secretary General in legal matters.
As a lawyer, Mr. Monner Sans practised at his family's firm, which has been known for bringing to Justice several public servants accused of corruption. For example, former President Menem was prosecuted because of one of such accusations.
He was elected as one of the youngest members of the Ethics Committee at the local Bar Association, and also served as Secretary of the Communications Law Institute, where he was at the same time editor of the Institute's magazine.
