What can you tell us about the trajectory of your consultancy?
We are two professionals with different backgrounds. Vicente (responsible for the department of consultation) comes from the legal environment and I have a commercial background. The Law was introduced 10 years ago and Vicente got interested. I studied at the time, we tossed the idea back and forth for a time until we decided to start a consultancy specialized in LOPD, and that´s how we got started. It is still just the two of us, and little by little the word has got around. As we are getting ready to celebrate our 10th anniversary we have over 700 clients from all sectors, and we also collaborate with various entities, AENIB amongst them. We have a collaboration agreement with AENIB since 4 years. We think they are doing a great job and have an excellent relationship with their members. The determination of Marga (Margarita Dahlberg, the President of AENIB), always on top of everything that happens in the sector is something we see very positively.
