Roberto is currently a non-governmental advisor to the Spanish competition authority (Conmisión Nacional de los Mercados y la Competencia, CNMC) in the international network of competition authorities.
He started his career at Uría Menéndez and joined MLAB in 2003 as a Competition & EU Law lawyer. He then joined RocaJunyent in 2014, where he headed the Competition and EU Law department and made partner in 2018, rejoining now the firm in which he worked as a Competition lawyer for 11 years.
He has particular expertise in restrictive practises before Competition authorities and in court proceedings. Roberto advises both companies and public bodies before the CNMC and the EC. He regularly represents clients before the Spanish National High Court, the Supreme Court of Spain and Spanish Commercial Courts. He regularly advises companies and multinationals on matters related to the Internal Market, the Common Agricultural Policy and the Banking Union, having handled more than 30 cases before the General Court of the European Union.
“MLAB Abogados is a boutique law firm specializing in European and Competition Law and the pioneering firm in this field in Spain. Although some of the best professionals in the sector work here, what excites me the most is something more personal and less technical: I am returning to the place where I trained during the best years of my professional career,” said the new partner.
Roberto was on of the selected “Top Competition Legal Dealmakers” by Legal Dealmaker in 2023.
