Barrios Garrido has been until now a partner in the regulatory and compliance area of Deloitte Legal, a firm he joined in 2018, where he has come to lead the TMT and energy sectors for the legal practice. Previously, he developed his professional career at Clifford Chance, ACS Group and Pérez-Llorca.

With more than twenty years of professional experience, Barrios Garrido specialises in matters related to administrative contracts, expropriations, urban planning and the environment, as well as in a wide variety of regulated sectors such as transport, public infrastructure, aeronautics, hotels, telecommunications, media and, in particular, the energy sector.
