Elena Crespo Lorenzo
I have been a family lawyer for more than 20 years and Partner of the Law Firm “Crespo Law” in Barcelona since 2007. When graduating from the University of Navarra, I realized that my vocation was Family Law, a legal area where I feel that I can offer my clients the best of myself.
Also, within the Department of Family, I count on the work of Montserrat Ramogueda, a great lawyer and my right hand, as well as a paralegal, Montserrat Ferrus. This combination allows us to offer each client a true 'tailor-made service' for their cases: perfectionism and the pursuit of excellence in my daily practice are the principles on which I base my work. It is the only way to help families in the way they deserve.
Working in an international firm, I am used to working efficiently, meticulously and for demanding clients, offering personalized advice for each client.
On the other hand, I belong to the "International Society of Family Law", I am also a member of the Spanish Association of Family Lawyers (AEAFA), a collaborating lawyer of the international organization Reunite against the international abduction of minors, a member of the Euro-American Academy of Family Law and of the Association of Collaborative Family Lawyers. Also thanks to my professional experience I have been chosen as a professor to teach in the Postgraduate of Parental Coordination at the University of Madrid (UDIMA).
I have extensive experience in complex cases with international elements and I work throughout the national territory, especially with applications for changes of residence of minors, international child abduction, parenting plans, joint custody, cross-border visitation rights, etc. In addition, I have a Master's degree in Tax Management at ESADE, which allows me to provide advice to my clients on fiscal aspects after the break.
Outside the office, I like spending time with my two daughters, travelling, taking part in growth and personal development trainings and do mountain trekking on weekends. My constant desire to learn and my passion for other cultures led me to found an international educational project in Barcelona focused on the Dutch and English cultures.
