She is a lawyer, partner and vice president of GVA & ATENCIA. She has been a fellow member of the Malaga Bar Association since 1980, when she joined the firm of Mr Manuel Atencia García. Inés was the founding partner of Atencia Abogados, S.C.P., in 1993, and partner of GVA & ATENCIA since it was founded in 2011.
She develops her work mainly as a procedural law specialist, responsible for the Civil and Commercial areas, specialising in family and probate, providing advice to professional associations. Her expertise encompases banking law, contracts, real estate, general advice and processing of all civil and commercial proceedings (claims for amounts, evictions, civil liability, latent defects, foreclosures, third-party claims to ownership, family, disability, probate, asset liquidation…)
Inés provides sound advice to clients, among which are financial entities, real estate companies, developers, builders, companies of the distribution sector, professional associations, communities of owners, holding companies, family businesses and private clients. She has formed part of many arbitration tribunals, both on a classical basis or on an equitable basis, since 1991 until present, appointed by the parties, by judicial designation or by the arbitration tribunal to which the parties subject themselves.
Inés is a strong believer that the client must be at the forefront of everything a lawyer does. The lawyer must approach each case depending on the particular circumstances of each one and keeping the client updated of any development that may occur on the case. Similarly, she gives considerable importance to the preventive work that the lawyer can do in the form of advice, to prevent future problems from arising for the client.
She was substitute public prosecutor since 1980, practising mainly in the Courts of District 4, 5 and 6 of Malaga and the Court of Instruction No. 2 and 4 of Malaga. Inés is a member of the Opinions Commission of the Malaga Bar Association [Comisión de Dictámenes del Colegio de Abogados de Malaga] from 1994 to 2006 and tutor of the Escuela de Prácticas Jurídica of the Malaga Bar Association.

She also made a presentation on the Draft Law of the Services Act and Professional Associations in the Talks of the Governing Boards organised by the General Council of Administrative Managers in Spain [Consejo General de Colegios de Gestores Administrativos de España] (May 2014).
Moreover, Inés also participated in the Round Table of the 7th Malaga Lawyers Congress [7º Congreso de la Abogacía Malagueña] in the procedural section with “How the judicial systems have an impact on the economic development of the companies to which they serve. The role of the public service called justice before the economic crisis” [‘Cómo influyen los sistemas judiciales en el desarrollo económico de las sociedades a las que sirven. El papel del servicio público denominado justicia ante la crisis económica’] (October 2011).
