Top 30 Compliance Officers in Spain


Top 30 Compliance Officers in Spain, selection by Legal Dealmaker & WCA

Collage Compliance Officers

Guarantors of Legal & Regulatory requirements, safeguarding business goals as a real partner

Legal Dealmaker, in collaboration with the World Compliance Association (WCA), has selected a list of 30 Compliance Officers presented in alphabetical order who, after thorough research, can be a very good representation of highlighted professionals for their work and trajectory over the last few years. They ensure all activities in their company are carried out within the regulatory framework, providing legal security and advice to the business, taking into account its goals and objectives as true partners. The selection has been made in collaboration with the World Compliance Association, whose work Legal Dealmaker holds in high esteem. The initiative was born with the aim to respond to the need to create a directory or the beginning of what could become a directory of the Compliance world in Spain. Although not all of them are lawyers, the presence of legal professionals is over 70%.

The criteria that have been taken into account for this selection have been based on the following scoring system, which accounts for both their personal/professional achievements and their company´s accomplishments in Compliance matters, which could not have been possible without their hard and excellent work.

Best Compliance Officers selection criteria

Legal Dealmaker is well aware that there are many other Compliance Officers that are not on this list and still deserve recognition but has limited the selection to 30 for editorial purposes, knowing that not all the best Compliance professionals can be included in this selection, but assuring that the ones included here are among the best ones.
