Javier read Law at the University of Valencia and moved to London in 2003. He previously worked for two London-based notarial firms as well as for the Spanish Embassy in London.
He first qualified as a lawyer (abogado) in Spain and a few years later as an English solicitor –currently non-practising– through the Qualified Lawyers Transfer scheme, before going on to qualify as a notary public through studies at the University of Cambridge. He is also an experienced legal translator, holds the qualification of official sworn translator appointed by the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and is a member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists.
Javier lectured for several years at the University of Westminster, holds a Master of Research in Law degree and is the author of the book “Spanish Law for Notaries”. His practice centres on Spain and Latin America, acting both for corporate and private clients.
He lives in South East London and is a particularly keen traveller. When he’s not in the office, he can often be found travelling around the world, or in his native Valencia, Spain.
