Career

Javi is a Senior Associate and forms part of the Financial Services team and the Shipping and Admiralty team. He was called to the bar in 2013 having completed his training contract at the firm. 

He has advised on a wide variety of financial services matters which include establishing regulated entities (AIFMs, EIFs, MIFID firms, payment institutions, insurers, e-money institutions) and advising them on their applications to the GFSC. He also regularly advises licensed entities with regulatory issues and has advised a number of clients on the establishment of crypto funds in Gibraltar. Notably, Javi was actively involved in the establishment of the first Gibraltar crypto fund to list on a recognised ESMA stock exchange.

Javi has been instrumental in establishing the FinTech team as one of the most highly regarded teams in Gibraltar and since the enactment of the distributed ledger technology regulations, he has been advising numerous blockchain start-ups (to include DLT licences and ICOs) and traditional financial services firms using blockchain technology on their establishment and regulatory position in Gibraltar.

Javi was elected onto the executive of Gibraltar Association of New Technologies (GANT) and has formed part of the working group being consulted by HM Government of Gibraltar on regulations to govern token sales/initial coin offerings/token generation events.

Javi was also seconded to the Financial Services Commission where he assisted with the initial phases of the redrafting of Gibraltar’s financial services legislation.

As part of the Shipping and Admiralty Team, he has assisted with numerous ship arrests (acting on behalf of the mortgagee banks and crew) and consequential court sale whether by auction or private treaty, owner/crew disputes, private yacht and commercial vessel registrations.

Javi is recognised by several legal directories.

Our membership of the European Union is not something that has been incidental and has not had a dramatic impact on Gibraltar; it has been very important in the direction that Gibraltar has taken over that period of time. Gibraltar - as you know - is attached to Southern Spain. Gibraltar and its position in the European Union is quite a fascinating study and a fascinating situation to explain.
