Q&A

How did you get into private client?

I got involved in private client whilst I worked at PWC in Madrid, circa 1994. I got involved in a trust issue worth €100m+ which needed an international team and I jumped at the chance. I later moved to EY in 2001 until 2005 and then we started Avantia Asesoramiento Fiscal y Legal.

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

Stay calm and focused. Notice what is NOT being said.

What is your favourite quote?

“Every problem is also an opportunity.”

Do you have any outside interests or hobbies?

Breadmaking- in particular artisan bread making. I play around with lots of different types of flour- I do everything by hand!

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

Zalacain, Madrid. It is a very old, traditional restaurant, which they have refurbished – with a twist.
