Counsel


I am a regulatory Counsel in our Tech and Comms Group based in Madrid. I am also specialised in public procurement and in the infrastructure sector.

I give advice on regulatory matters mainly in the technology, telecommunications, digital economy and media sectors. I am also specialised in public procurement and have advised in a wide range of infrastructure projects, including several PPP contracts.

I assist my clients in all the Spanish contentious-administrative courts.

I joined Bird & Bird in 2019 from another international law firm. I speak Spanish and English.

  • Legal advice to one of the largest vacation rental homes digital platform on Spanish regulatory law.

  • Legal assistance in a contentious-administrative appeal, before the High Court of Madrid, on the rejection of an administrative appeal which had been submitted by non-electronic means being correct. The Court judgment, which was the second in Spain, and the first in Madrid, about this topic, ruled in favour of the client and stated that the legal regime which obliges Spanish companies to interact with public authorities by electronic means had not entered into effect yet.
  • Legal assistance to a company which operates a railway concession contract in a contentious-administrative appeal, before the High Court of Madrid, in relation to the payment of some maintenance works.
