BIOGRAPHY

I studied law and stock markets in the double programme at the Instituto de Estudios Bursátiles (IEB), qualifying in 1999.

Newly qualified, I was selected for a six-month internship in Washington DC at US start-up called “The Global Exchange, Inc.”.

I started practising as a junior lawyer in the E-Commerce department at Anguiano y Asociados (January to December 2000).

From there I went to Garrigues Abogados where I remained until August 2010 as a junior lawyer, collaborator and finally, an associate. During this time I lectured and spoke in different Master’s Degree programmes and training seminars and participated in work groups on matters related to electronic signatures and invoices.
