As the partner leading our Public Law and Regulatory group in Spain, I have deep specialisation and experience in innovative sectors, especially in Life Sciences and Healthcare.

I place a particular focus on delivering strategic advice to technological and biotechnological companies on complex legal issues related to public entities (R&D and clinical trials, advertising, compliance, product compliance & product liability, authorisations and market access, price and reimbursement, public contracting, European financing and projects, digital health etc).

I have a strong track record in contentious public procurement matters, and have been appointed an expert in public procurement of innovation by the EC. I'm also known for my Life Sciences and Healthcare litigation work, and have been recognised in these areas by the leading international legal rankings for more than 15 years.

I am also an Arbitrator of the Courts of Arbitration of the Spanish Chamber of Commerce and of the Madrid Chamber of Commerce and a member of the Counseling Board of the latter.
