About me


I’ve been a practising attorney since the 1990s. For many years, I was a partner in the law firm of “Estudio Jurídico Bercovitz-Carvajal”, where I was tasked with managing and supervising a large proportion of the copyright work. The bulk of my work focuses on the entertainment industry, where I advise performing artists, managers, record companies and music publishers, performing and mechanical rights societies, and companies in the audiovisual and technological sector. 

Over time my activity has spread to include other spheres of copyright and related rights (architecture, books, etc.), civil law (property and ownership), commercial law and competition law. In addition, I have long-standing experience of the procedural formalities involved in pursuing legal actions and am always ready to take on the challenge of court work. Since 2007, my work has been publicly acknowledged -for better or worse- by a number of international legal directories, such as CHAMBERS & PARTNERS, e.g., “Is held by interviewees to be a leader in terms of knowledge and understanding of the music industry (CHAMBERS & PARTNERS, 2016) and “A very good music lawyer without a doubt (CHAMBERS & PARTNERS, 2018). I’ve likewise been included in the rankings of the BEST LAWYERS directory.
