Carlos Pérez is enthusiastic about this move, which allows him to remain faithful to his professional ambition: “That has always been about ensuring the Law is never an obstacle for my clients, but rather a practical and effective tool for achieving their objectives, while also securing proper fulfilment of their obligations.”

Carlos Pérez is one of the leading lawyers for the Legal sector, specifically in the TMT area. With more than 30 years of professional experience, he advises public, private, national and international bodies in the different areas of his speciality, with particular expertise in Intellectual Property, Technology Contracting and Data Protection. Over the last 29 years, Fieldfisher JAUSAS’ new partner has also been an active participant in various legislative initiatives in Spain, both in the Intellectual Property field and Data Protection.

Carlos Pérez has given more than 200 lectures at universities, law firms, business associations and other IT forums as an associate professor for Master’s degrees, postgraduate courses and specialised courses in his field of expertise at ESADE, ISDE, the Barcelona Bar Association and the University of Alicante – Magister Lucentinus.

According to Jordi Ruiz de Villa, president and partner at Fieldfisher JAUSAS: “Incorporating Carlos Pérez as an equity partner brings great added value. Carlos is one of our country’s leading lawyers in Information Technologies, E-commerce and Data Privacy, areas in which we see considerable growth in customers from the United Kingdom and the USA.” Ruiz de Villa continued: “The Fieldfisher JAUSAS 2021-24 Strategic Plan includes the addition of three equity partners and two more professional partners in the Barcelona office, so Carlos’s incorporation represents significant progress towards achieving it.”
