Mike LL.M. Founder and Consultant

With over 50 years continuous public practice experience, there's not much Mike hasn't seen over the years.

He began his training in 1968 and qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 1972. Senior partner in his firm from 1982 to 1999 when he emigrated to Spain, he resigned from the Institute in 2000 to set up his current wide-ranging side of the practice in Spain to build up an international tax & business advisory consultancy and an advisory service for British Expats who still retained UK tax and accounting responsibilities. He also retains a substantial portfolio of clients from his UK-based days.

Mike also holds a contemporary (2019) Master of Laws Degree (University of Cumbria) in International Trade Law and undertakes international contract review consultancy as well as specialising in international copyright disputes, corporate governance advice and cross border business solutions.

Outside of work, Mike loves his cricket (he is a full member of MCC) but his two weaknesses are following the fortunes (sic!) of Luton Town FC (accident of birth) and playing tennis (he is very bad at it).
Happily married with 14 variously acquired grandchildren!

The Team

Laura Company Secretary

Laura has been working in the accountancy field for 15 years and has gained a wealth of knowledge and experience from being office based with Mike. As well as keeping Mike in order, Laura oversees corporate clients' statutory requirements and statutory books maintenance and deals with clients' day to day routine email enquiries and follow-ups.

Away from her PC, Laura has two passions: Her family (2 daughters and her husband) and her Smartphone - don't ask!!

The Team

Immaculada (Macu)

Macu worked for many years with local accountancy and legal firms in Spain before setting up her own taxation and state reporting business for Spanish Nationals as well as dealing with property conveyance services. The Spanish have a form for everything, usually in triplicate, and drive people mad with their complexity but it is all "bread and butter" for Macu. She has the patience of a saint and contacts everywhere. No firm should be without a "Macu" and we and our clients are lucky to have her calming services in what would otherwise be crisis circumstances!

Macu has 24 years experience in dealing with these areas and joined Mike 5 years ago to add her expertise to the services we could offer solving Expat problems in Spain that would otherwise drive Mike mad!

Outside her work, Macu has two adult sons but cannot get rid of them! In the best Spanish tradition, they all live together (with their partners and her grandson to whom she is devoted) in Macu's house. Her outside interests are a closely guarded secret but she loves walking her dogs - if only to get out of the house!
