Pérez-Llorca has strengthened its tax department with the incorporation of Felipe Alonso (pictured centre), Javier Povo (pictured right) and Antonio Ruiz (pictured left), who have joined the tax department in the areas of tax litigation and private wealth.

Javier Povo joins as a new partner specialised in tax proceedings and litigation with more than 17 years of experience in national and international law firms. He also has extensive experience in advising multinational companies and institutions in their verification and investigation procedures, in economic-administrative and judicial proceedings.

On the other side, Felipe Alonso Fernández joins Pérez-Llorca as of counsel with more than 40 years of professional experience and as a tax inspector on leave of absence. Alonso Fernández has held positions of responsibility in the Public Administration and in various law firms.

Finally, Antonio Ruiz, an economist, joins Pérez-Llorca’s tax team as senior tax counsel. With more than 15 years of experience, he specialises in general and real estate taxation, taxation of restructuring operations, mergers and acquisitions, private wealth and accounting law.

“The incorporation of these professionals reinforces two tax areas that will gain importance in the short term and on which we have been focusing for some time: litigation taxation and private wealth. These appointments are in line with our commitment to our clients: to have the best professionals to advise them always with the highest quality and the best service,” said Clara Jiménez, partner in charge of tax at Pérez-Llorca.
