I used to live in the United States for quite a while and obtained my high school diploma there. After my return to Spain, I completed my law studies in Madrid and started my career as a trainee-attorney at a firm specialised in corporate law. After that, I was employed as an attorney by both internal legal departments and by independent law firms. Even then, I already focussed on various aspects of corporate law. I am a member of the COPCA/ICEX directory of international trade professionals, and I have published various articles on corporate and commercial law in a wide range of professional journals. In my spare time, I very much enjoy a good book or a run through the streets of my town, Barcelona.
