How can I help you?

My objective is to offer the client a personal, rigorous, honest and ethical advice; analysing in each case the needs, expectations and interests of each client in order to protect and defend them in the best possible way, creating a necessary relationship of mutual trust.

I provide legal advice on all types of transactions and factual situations related to civil and commercial law and, where appropriate, I assume the legal direction of legal proceedings arising from these matters.

In particular, I have proven experience in contractual and non-contractual liability matters in general terms, defending the interests of both companies and individuals, as well as, at an earlier stage, in the preparation of contractual frameworks. I have also directed various business operations focused on preventive regulatory analysis for the adaptation and delimitation of the current regulations applicable to their specific activity, in order to ensure strict compliance with state and European regulations, contributing to the correct strategic and business decision-making.

On the other hand, I have specialised in practice in the field of Insurance Law, assisting all types of agents acting within the insurance market in the contractual and post-contractual phase, claims handling or legal defence in all types of procedures involving this sectorial regulation.

Another of my specialities is competition law, covering both situations of unfair competition, the defence of the affected market and also, ultimately, claims for damages arising from the commission of an infringement of competition law. All of this, both from the point of view of national law and European law, assuming the legal management of legal proceedings in application, indistinctly, of both legal systems.

My professional career

I am a practising lawyer, member of the Barcelona Bar Association (ICAB) with number 45.741.

Since 2018 I am part of the Civil and Commercial Law, Litigation and Arbitration, Insurance Law and EU and International Law Departments of AGM Abogados, advising all types of companies and individuals on these matters.

Academically, I graduated in Law from the University of Barcelona (class of 2013-2017).

From 2017 to 2018 I sat the competitive examination for access to the Judicial Career, and one of the Magistrates of the Criminal Section of the Provincial Court of Barcelona undertook my preparation.

Subsequently, I studied the Master’s Degree in Access to the Legal Profession co-taught by the Barcelona Bar Association (ICAB) and the University of Barcelona (class of 2018-2020), graduating in Law.

I am currently studying a specialisation in Business Law at the Centro de Estudios Financieros (CEF) with the aim of reinforcing and updating my knowledge in this field.

I speak Spanish, Catalan and English.

About me

I am a lover of nature, reading, cinema and music in all its forms. I also enjoy discovering new corners of the world and learning from new experiences.

However, my favourite pastime is spending quality time with my family and friends. Good company turns any place, any time, into something wonderful.
