About Me

I am a partner and Head in Bird & Bird's Commercial/Commercial Dispute Resolution department and co-Head of the Technology & Communications sector group in the Madrid office.

I have broad knowledge of civil, commercial and litigation law, as well as a deep understanding of the technology industry.

I regularly act in complex commercial contracts and negotiations, with a particular focus in the tech & comms sector. My experience in this area includes legal design, negotiation and implementation of complex transformation projects, software development and integration contracts and IT outsourcing.

I also have extensive experience in the field of dispute resolution in many civil jurisdiction cases before the Spanish courts (all instances, including the Supreme Court). I also regularly participate in domestic and international arbitration proceedings, acting as both counsel and as arbitrator. My litigation and arbitration expertise covers sectors and areas such as IT and business consultancy projects, insurance, healthcare, financial services, international commerce, corporate and M&A related disputes, among others.

I write regularly for specialist publications and I have lectured in several education and business institutions, such as CEU San Pablo University and CEU Business School in Madrid.

I've been recognised by Best Lawyers in the fields of Litigation, International Arbitration, Arbitration & Mediation, IT law, IP and Insurance law.

I joined Bird & Bird in 2006 having previously worked in one of the most prestigious law firms in the Ibero-American market.
