BETANCORT LEGAL wants to be your legal advisor in the Canary Islands, Spain

BL is Judit Betancort Melián

“If I had to introduce myself from a professional point of view, I would focus on the skills I had the opportunity to train and hone during the twelve years I was working for international law firms: "big picture" view, risk analysis, cross-cultural awareness and pro-active approach to results.

However, I would prefer to describe myself through my favourite quote, which has inspired my work-life philosophy: “You must be the change you wish to see in the world” (M. Ghandi)"
Judit Betancort - Betancort Legal
