On his hiring, the lawyer has stated that: “I start at Pérez-Llorca together with my friends and colleagues Álvaro De Castro and Joaquín Rovira Fernandez-Arche the most exciting and interesting project of my practicing career. We join Andy Ramos Gil de la Haza and the rest of the IP team for building up the IP litigation practice at the firm. We want to hit it hard. We have the ambitious goal of becoming the leading IP litigation force in Spain in the short term, and Pérez-Llorca is the firm that can achieve it. We have it clear in our heads, and we are extremely happy to start doing it with our hands. We are mainly patent litigators, but it is not only about ourselves. I want to thank from the very beginning my partners Pedro Pérez-Lorca and Juan Jiménez Laiglesia, for their support and for sharing their enthusiasm on the project. Secondly, my former IP colleagues at GA_P for giving me much more than I could share with them in my last six years as Head of IP. And finally, but first in importance, to Alvaro and Joaquin for all these years working as a team and for having shown me the true meaning of partnership.”
