“ As a lawyer, I always try to put myself in the place of the person who asks us for advice, so that all the options or alternatives that come up as solutions, are those that I would adopt on a personal level if the interested party were myself. ”

One of the things I like the most about my job is when a safe, legal and fair tax situation is achieved for the benefit of the peace of mind and the taxpayer’s economy, both in structuring and prior planning, as well as when it is necessary to defend certain criteria before the tax administration.


Advice to taxpayers, both natural and legal persons, in:

  • Restructuring processes (mergers, splits, exchanges, contributions from branches of activity, …).
  • Tax inspection, collection and management procedures.
  • Appeals before the Administration, the economic-administrative courts and the contentious-administrative courts.
  • Direction of due diligence prior to purchasing, acquisition, merger, …
  • Analysis of tax optimization planning and systems (consolidation taxation, assessment of the application of the different tax deductions, possible use of the various existing special regimes, …)
  • Accounting and tax closings corresponding to the tax period affected
  • Study of the combinations of Spanish and Andorran taxation in the field of individuals and companies and compliance with the formal and material requirements legally established.
