How can I help you?

My experience focuses on complex civil and commercial litigation (court and arbitration), specifically in litigation with an international focus and insurance matters. Through our network of law firms, I also assist clients who need legal advice abroad by finding the most suitable for them.

My professional career

I am a member of the State of New York and the Barcelona Bar Associations.

I graduated in Law from Pompeu Fabra University (UPF) in 2003 and I hold a Master of Laws from New York University (which I studied thanks to a Fundación Rafael del Pino Scholarship), a Postgraduate Degree in Civil Litigation and a Postgraduate Degree in International Relations and a Diploma in Arbitration from the Instituto de Empresa.

I have 20 years’ experience in civil and commercial litigation, arbitration, and insolvency law, with a focus in international cases, half of which at two major Spanish law firms: Gómez-Acebo & Pombo and Garrigues.

After 6 years as coordinator of the Litigation Department of a prestigious law firm in Barcelona, in 2019 I became a partner of Ejarque Abogados and, since July 2020, of the Litigation and Arbitration Department of AGM Abogados. I am also part of the French Desk and, in addition, I am the responsible of the international development of the firm.

I am also a professor of International Litigation and Negotiation in the Master’s Degree in Law at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra.

Apart from my mother tongues (Spanish and Catalan), I am fluent in English, French and Italian.

I am a member of the professional association AIJA (Association Internationale des Jeunes Avocats), currently holding the position of Co-Vice-President of the Litigation Commission.

About me

I practice improvisational theatre and various sports, both in the city (fitness) and in nature (trail running, mountain skiing, scuba diving).

I love reading, independent cinema, good restaurants and wine.
