About My Work

My background is Shipping Law, holding a master degree cum laude in Shipping Law and Harbour Operations. I have kept a general practice in Spain where commercial and real estate disputes have been preeminent, keeping a record of assisting foreign clients for over 25 years.

Since the end 2015, I have practiced against the campaign to boycott Israel, achieving a number of Court judgements and writs that annulled, and halted a variety of boycott decisions across Spain, on the grounds of breaching public liberties and International Law. Recently, a first appelate decision confirmed a boycott decision to be illegal for breaches of public liberties. These Court successes have been the first outside France —where due to a particular regard to freedom of speech— even an irregular jurisprudence deems the call for an economic boycott a criminal offense.

I hold strong views on free speech and freedom of association. To me, they should be legally unfettered. However, government has not such civil liberties, but powers limited by law. It is the individual who has civil liberties, precisely against the abuse of office.

The practice of Law is most of the time, plain work. When done right, it can be dignified. But at times, when justice and compassion are met, the Law can stir the heart of every good man. It is for the sake of them, if there only would be ten of them, that Law and Right find their worth.

This country’s planted thick with laws from coast to coast– man’s laws, not God’s– and if you cut them down, do you really think you could stand upright in the winds that would blow then?
