More about Andreu
After a few years working as a lawyer of the Public Administration in tax matters, in 2007 I joined the firm Crowe Horwath in order to consolidate and manage the team of Tax proceedings and the Information Coordination Centre of the firm. In 2013 I decided to work on my own.

I enjoy examining the cases carefully and defending the interests of my clients in tax litigation and, as I am deeply involved with them, I celebrate every appeal allowed or upheld, almost as much as they do, which encourages me to continue growing professionally. As a counterpart to the demanding aspect of our work, I try to balance it with the occasional practice of sport, especially in the mountains, by reading historical novels, spending time with my family and friends and enjoying the cuisine in all its expressions.

More about Anna
After studying law at the Pompeu Fabra University and at the end of a Master of Specialization, I had the opportunity in 2004 to be selected to take an internship in an office of recognized prestige within family law, the Law Office of Mª José Varela Portela.

Since then I became part of it and I have stayed there for more than 11 years. This has allowed me to acquire a consolidated experience within the sector by giving me the opportunity to access various issues related to the area of ​​law that I really love, family law.

Consolidated my experience after more than 11 years practicing, I made the decision to work on my own and have the opportunity to apply all the knowledge acquired but exercising the profession under the criteria and values ​​in which I really believe.
I consider the personalized, close, attentive and patient treatment with the client to be of the utmost importance when dealing with such personal matters as those involved in my specialization.
I try to achieve maximum involvement in every issue I have and I try to forge a relationship of trust between the lawyer and the client that allows him a peace of mind despite the problems he has in mind.

After a long day of work, my disconnection is to see the face of my son Pol, who with a simple smile gets me to forget everything else and realize that he is the true engine of my life.

More about Allende
My specialisation in the field of labour law began once I completed my law studies at the University of Oviedo in 1999. This election is marked by a long career in the family firm located in those green Asturian lands, with an experience of forty-eight years rendering legal services and advice to small and medium enterprises (SME), which allowed me to acquire a wide training and, experience as well as core values of professionalism and closeness to the client, conditions so needed for the daily advice required by all SMEs. My jump into Barcelona occurred in October 2010, when I joined BDO Spain, a professional services international firm in which I was able to extend my knowledge to more specific needs and dynamics of large international business.

Undoubtedly what I am more passionate about in my job is the optimization of human resources in companies, by combining the most important values for a proper management of working time under the suitability of a remuneration system according to the economic capacity of each of them and thus achieve a lower rate of industrial disputes. After long hours of office I love disconnecting and removing the accumulated tension with a good yoga session, which allows me not only to adopt a good body physical alignment but also to cultivate values being as necessary as confidence, respect, empathy that always get good synergies in all spheres.

In 2013 I decided to start working on my own and, after what I have learned, exercising the profession under the values in which I believe.

I love being a lawyer but my other passion is teaching, and the UOC (Open University of Catalonia) allows me developing it for more than twelve years, serving as a professor in matters relating to commercial law and in the Legal Advice Masters. I like offering a personalized and close service as well as getting deeply involved in the issues and the clients so that they feel supported and safe.

My hobbies are going back to my hometown, on the Costa Brava, whenever I can and there getting away from the daily workload enjoying with my family; also getting pleasure from the sea; profiting a nice dinner with some friends and, above all, meeting my son Alex’s smile in the morning or when I get home after a day of work.

More about Cristina
I have always romanticized the profession of lawyer. In high school, when I attended as part of the audience to the first public trials as part of a free election subject, I knew I wanted to wear the toga. I studied at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra and from the second year, in 2006, I began my training in a civil and commercial law firm, where I am still currently working. Since then, I have been training in litigation, until I have become the Director of the Litigation Department. I like the adrenaline of trials and I think the most rewarding part of this profession is feeling that we can help others.

I am a metropolitan woman, but in my spare time I like taking my dog hiking in nature and filling my lungs with fresh air. My ideal night consists of a romantic dinner with my partner, tasting a fine wine, and listening to live music.
