Ángel graduated from ICAI University (Madrid, Spain) as Industrial Engineer (B.Sc. in 1993) with a specialization in Electricity and Electronics.
He started his career in the IP field in one of the most-traditional IP firms in Spain, where he worked for over twenty years, the last six as director of the electromechanical technology group.
After twenty years in the same company, he decided to step out of his comfort zone and look for new challenges, so he joined one of the most reputable IP firms in Europe, where he spent four years in its subsidiary office in Madrid.
As a complement of his daily work, he enjoyed for seven years being a member of the Examination Committee for the European Qualifying Examination at the European Patent Office.
Ángel has extensive experience in private practice advising clients on the prosecution of patent applications, both before the European Patent Office and the Spanish Patent and Trademark Office. He works in a wide range of technologies, with special emphasis on power converters, aeronautical structures, composite manufacturing, wind turbines and electric vehicles. His main work includes drafting patent applications, prosecution before the EPO and oppositions. He also has experience as a technical expert in contentious proceedings before the Spanish courts.
Ángel’s working approach is based on providing clients with clear and practical guidance in obtaining and defending their IP rights. His attention to detail and technical knowledge, makes him a valuable advisor.
When not at work, Angel enjoys spending time with his family, gardening and reading history books.
