Carlos Sancho Gargallo, academic coordinator of the legal area

I am an associate professor of Financial Management at IESE Business School and hold a Degree in Law from the Universitat de Barcelona. In 2001, I was director of Law Studies at IESE Business School. I am currently working on a study run by one of the biggest publishing and multimedia groups in Spain concerning a contractual model for intellectual property and Internet rights.

In 2003, I was appointed Manager of Education for the Commission on Fiscal Matters of Barcelona Chamber of Commerce. I also founded the European Bureau of Affairs, which is based in Brussels, and formerly advised Spanish companies on adapting their operations within the context of the European Union.

I began my career as a lawyer at Madrid-based firm Román Mas and Calvet. I have researched and written articles on topics ranging from law and business to investing overseas, industrial property and patents. My future plans include conducting research for a paper on the new insolvency law and publishing several texts about legal regimes and family businesses.
