In the teaching field, he is a full professor of civil law. He is also founder and honorary president of the Instituto de Consejeros-Administradores.
Igartua specialises in structured and project finance, takeover bids, insurance, new technology law, regulation of financial institutions and corporate governance.
The GA_P’s New York office is one of four that the firm has outside Spain, the others are in London, Brussels and Lisbon.
