I am a partner and head of Bird & Bird's Tax department in the Madrid office.
I'm a lawyer with strong transactional and dispute resolution expertise. With over 30 years' experience within the tax environment, I have wide-ranging experience providing tax advisory services to Spanish entities and multinational groups, from the financial & insurance industry, energy industry, real estate area, pharma field and others.
By utilising my knowledge of the Spanish market, regulatory framework of some of my clients and maintaining regular contact with regulators and the tax authorities, I've built a very pragmatic practice with a clear understanding of clients' tax requirements and needs.
Assisting private clients to structure their wealth in a tax efficient manner to hold it and further pass it through new family generations or to transfer on-going businesses to new investors is also one of the areas where our department grew significantly along the last years.
I coordinate and lead specialist teams on projects relating to direct and indirect taxation, tax accounting and tax controversy.
I write regularly on tax issues and lecture and lead seminars for organisations including the ICADE, IEB and Chamber of Commerce of Madrid.
I speak fluent Spanish and English.
