- As far as languages are concerned, she has a B2 level of English, certified by the University of Cambridge, and a B1 level in French.
- Her education, at an employment level, has been very closely connected to financial entities, since she has also worked for an important company of the sector.
- Since she joined GVA & ATENCIA (2012), she has worked in the Financial Entity and Insurance Department.
At GVA & ATENCIA, she occupies the position of Lawyer in the Financial Entities and Insurance Department. Previously, she worked for a banking entity, performing administrative, commercial and financial advice tasks, among other things. She also developed part of her professional career in a small law firm, before studying an MBA at the Escuela de Negocios ESESA, on a full-time basis.
Upon completing this postgraduate programme, in April 2002, she joined GVA & ATENCIA. She joined the firm through an internship programme organised by the MBA itself, which in collaboration with the firm, offered a job placement programme for students at prestigious companies.
Most of her work takes place in the Financial Entity Department, where she deals with all sorts of judicial and extrajudicial cases. Her main client is a first-class financial entity.
At the same time, she also participates in the Insurance Department processing cases and attending trials. She also participates in weekly “Training Sessions”, where, based on previously agreed topics, she shares ideas with the purpose of reaching conclusions that entail unified approaches of the department according to each subject.
The department carries out a range of legal proceedings in the Banking Department. They process files ranging from the presentation of the lawsuit until its conclusion, including attending trials. They conduct all kinds of out-of-court processes, such as the preparation and advice on the execution of agreements, negotiations, legal advice, formalisation of purchase and sales contracts and so on.
Financial and corporate sector
The work is focused mainly on the financial and corporate sector through the processing of foreclosure proceedings or personal enforcement proceedings and declarative actions (in Civil and Company Courts). The department also processes certain criminal or administrative cases, and deal with out-of-court transactions, such as purchase and sales, inter partes agreements, dations on payment or negotiations prior to the submission of the lawsuits, among others.
Thanks to all this, Ana is an expert in providing financial and legal advice to financial entities and insurance companies, as well as in giving advice to private clients in related matters. The approach she takes when addressing cases is to provide adequate solutions for the particular file, based both on her prior knowledge and complementary studies carried out on the case.
The Financial Entities and Insurance Department to which she belongs, holds weekly meetings where certain matters which, due to their particular complexity or singularity, require being discussed and reaching a consensus of all the department helps the department grow professionally.
She is a fellow member of the Malaga Bar Association (ICAM) and the Association of Former Students of the Escuela de Negocios ESESA.
