Memberships
  • Madrid Lawyers Bar
  • Trade Mark and Patent Attorney (qualified “agente de la propiedad industrial” before the Spanish IPO and registered representative at the EUIPO)
Qualifications
  • Qualified in the Spanish Trade Mark and Patent Attorney examinations
  • Qualified in the Spanish Lawyer’s Bar examination
  • Masters Legal Practice, Alfonso X University
  • Double degree Law & Business Administration, Complutense University of Madrid

Prior to joining Boult, I completed Law and Business Administration degrees at Complutense University of Madrid. A brief experience at a banking law firm and a position in the Spanish Patent and Trade Mark Office made clear to me that I wanted my career in law to be focused on business and commercial matters in general and IP in particular.

I began my professional trade mark career with a Spanish law firm, assisting with the registration and defence of trade marks and designs, in Spain and before the EUIPO in a direct manner, and in coordination with foreign agents. I assisted small and medium-sized companies as well as wine Regulatory Councils of Protected Designations of Origin (PDOs). During this time I become a Trade Mark and Patent Attorney and Lawyer (Spanish and EU qualified) and passed the Lawyer’s Bar.

There is an excellent balance in our team between clearly seeing the impact of my work, and the difference my input makes for my clients, and having the management and resources of a market-leading international firm. It’s a dynamic I’ve found really suits me. I enjoy, and am most experienced in, trade mark right enforcement in all its varieties, from oppositions to cease and desist letters.

Prior to joining Boult, I also had the opportunity to help to protect copyright and business secrets by building and selling a system to create reliable evidence, compliant with EU eIDAS Regulation, to work on agency contracts (distribution agreements), and on the validation of bespoke intangible asset valuation models.

I have always enjoyed contact with clients, and thrive in international environments thanks to my experience and language skills – in Spanish, English, French and Italian. Joining Boult was a fantastic opportunity for me to work on exciting international cases, and I’m delighted to be assisting with developing our team in Spain.

Recent experience

Negotiating with the representatives of a renowned car manufacturer that had filed a trade mark application similar to our small client’s trade mark, successfully changing its position of threats for infringement into the withdrawal of its trade mark.

Developing a more modern and cost-effective in-house proofing system for copyright works and trade secrets, sourcing the best supplier and fine-tuning the details of legal certainty and commercial lustre.

Assisting a start-up (with an important IP portfolio related to packaging) on its acquisition by American investors, where the client stated that my advice was key in validating its internal model for IP rights pricing and convincing the investors of the value in the last rounds of negotiation.

Successful pursuing cease and desist letters and replies to them (involving trade marks but also designs, copyright and patents).
