Work Department

Restructuring and insolvency


I am a partner and head of the Restructuring and Insolvency Department of Fieldfisher JAUSAS since 2003. I am a renowned expert in restructuring and reorganization as well as in national and international insolvency proceedings, from both the bankrupt and creditor’s point of view. My areas of specialization include the acquisition of productive units in the context of insolvency proceedings.

Moreover, as an expert in Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A), I have led numerous purchase and sales transactions and other restructuring operations for both Spanish and foreign clients. Thanks to my ability to negotiate in time-limited situations, I am especially competent in accelerated sales processes and other particular circumstances (distressed M&A).

According to Chambers & Partners, my clients describe me as “very knowledgeable and with a lot of experience with international work”, and consider that I have everything they would look for: “the knowledge, experience, practicality and punctuality.”

  • Life Sciences Overview 2008/09

    Law 29/2006 (26 July 2006) on guarantees and rational use of medicinal products and medical devices is the central regulation governing medicinal products. The law still requires development through a large number of Royal Decrees, during 2008 and 2009. Many provisions of Law 29/2006 (such as the sale by post or by telematic means of certain medicinal products) do not appear to be enforceable until such legislation is enacted. This particularly applies to rules on medical devices, which are included in Law 29/2006, but need legislation to be effectively enforced. Such specific legislation is currently being developed, including for medical prescriptions and traceability.
