What have been your career highlights?

I started my professional career at Hogan Lovells in 2015 in the Intellectual Property, Media and Technology (IPMT) practice group in the Alicante office. My practice focuses on intellectual property matters, including trademark prosecution, portfolio management and enforcement.

I was thrilled by the fact that the moment I began I was given interesting and complex cases.  By the first month I was already providing legal advice to international companies, assisting in trademark enforcement and prosecutions amongst other stimulating tasks.

In my second year, I was able to meet colleagues from other offices throughout Europe in an international networking event. This was a distinctive experience as more experienced professionals from Hogan Lovells were present and provided us advice and inspiration for our future with the firm.  

What about working at Hogan Lovells is unique and inspiring?

Hogan Lovells is unique and inspiring for how it encourages solidarity.  Through pro-bono cases, citizenship activities and the Touch program, the firm provides various means to help society, which is extremely gratifying. I especially enjoy pro-bono cases as they provide me the opportunity to lend a hand in a way that challenges me and helps me learn about society, law and how to better both. 

This firm also stands out for its motivating work environment. Lawyers are exposed to complex cases from the beginning, receive constant constructive feedback and can see their evolution through experience and time.

On a professional level, if there is one quality which makes Hogan Lovells remarkable, it's the incredibly professional team which is, in turn, outstanding for their proximity to newcomers. As any young and untested lawyer, I was daunted by the fact of joining such a top level and demanding firm. However, these thoughts disappeared the day I arrived. 

Extremely impressed by the camaraderie atmosphere and the interest in the Partners, Associates and every other colleague in providing guidance from day one, it's easy to see that from the beginning, anyone who joins this firm is being set up for success.
