Q&A

What has been the highlight of your practice over the past 12 months?

The internationalization of Spanish families owning cross-border businesses exposes our practice to an increasing number of tax issues the resolution of which requires an understanding and comparative analysis of private law institutions and conflict of laws rules.

What advice would you give rising stars/new lawyers in the private client world?

Adopt a 360º degree look over your clients’ affairs, with a solid fundamental knowledge of the private law, tax and financial aspects involved, and endeavor to turn complex matters into simple and clearly-delivered messages.
