Q&A

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

The pandemic’s impact on families and business is huge - what type of new world are we facing? How do we react to it? There are hard questions surrounding movement, tax and residency rights. We don’t always know the answers, but it is becoming our day to day.

How did you get into private client?

When I joined Cuatrecasas, there were only 26 lawyers in Madrid, 26 years ago. I practiced international taxation and as we started to grow, I started to solve problems for the individuals behind the financial institutions we advised. Now I am a private client lawyer with a very important understanding of the financial structuring of our clients’ business.

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

You must have a good understanding of the world and the trend of internationalisation. Always assume the need for complete transparency with clients and have excellent knowledge and working application of the jurisdictions they are in.

Do you have any outside interests or hobbies?

My children! I try to spend time with my family and my hobbies situate around this, which include golf, running. reading and watching a good TV series.

When the restaurants reopen, where would you like to go?

La Bodega De Uga, Lanzarote – we have been spending our summer there for the last 11 years. It is a wonderful restaurant which is not well known, but it is an experience!
