Joaquín Mena

Compliance Area Partner

As an expert in Financial Auditing, Fiscal Monitoring and the Prevention of Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing, I believe we are experiencing a profound economic transformation and that Good Governance and Transparency will play the leading roles in the daily management of our businesses and organisations.

As a specialist in Legal Compliance, I attempt to assist companies when they choose Integrity as a key element in their management processes. This does not only involve setting limits as regards creative accounting or drawing red lines on tax planning, but also, helping them create sustainable business structures that are in line with their values, in addition to making it easy.

Training and dissemination are my other great passions and I have dedicated a great deal of time to leading and giving courses and conferences at universities and professional and business associations on Preventing Money Laundering, Financial Fraud and Government Risk Management.

I am founder, First Vice-chairperson and Academic and Certification Manager of INBLAC (Institute of Experts on the Prevention of Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing).

Francisco L Bonatti Bonet
Partner Director

With more than 25 years’ experience as a criminal defence lawyer, I am particularly interested in Corporate Criminal Law. After being shown that there is no better defence for a company than prevention, I specialised in Corporate Criminal Liability and Governance, Risk & Compliance models, and was among the first in Spain to graduate with a Master of Compliance.
