Tell us about yourself

I hold degrees in Political Science and Law from the Autonomous University of Barcelona and the University of Barcelona, respectively. I have a Master's Degree in International Business Law from ESADE; an Executive Master's Degree in Business Administration and Management from EAE and an Executive Education Programme in Strategic Projects from IESE.

My passion for sport has led me to become President of the Catalan Tennis Federation; First Vice-President of the Royal Spanish Tennis Federation; member of the Board of Directors of the International Tennis Federation and member of the Legal Commission and Legal Liability of the Spanish Olympic Committee.

I have been a lawyer since 2005 and I am part of Baker Tilly, where I am Senior Counsel and responsible for the Sports and Entertainment area in Spain.

How do you think these last few years have influenced the way you work?

Technological changes and a changing environment make it necessary for professionals to constantly adapt and be resilient. We have to be aware of learning to unlearn and to be attentive to new market niches such as Sport and Entertainment with a great social and economic impact.

What advice would you give to someone starting out in their career?

In such a competitive environment it is necessary to acquire the right training to have the tools and gain the trust of clients. The climate and environment of the workplace must have a human component to share knowledge and concerns with colleagues in the firm and thus grow professionally.

"What I value most in my day-to-day work is having the opportunity to collaborate with a very competent team, in a multidisciplinary and global firm, which provides solutions of great value to our clients"
