Ms. Elena Reta
I have a degree in Law from the University of Navarra and I studied two Masters at the UPV, on Regional Law and Finance. My professional career was spent in the Tax Administration, where I was an inspector and responsible for the legal advice and drafting of the regulations of the Gipuzkoa Provincial Council.
I have sought to disseminate tax law by participating in courses and seminars at universities, professional associations and other forums and writing specific articles. And already working in the private sector, providing tax and commercial advice to companies, an activity that presents innumerable challenges, the project we are promoting at INNOTAX has inspired me a great deal. It is very interesting to approach innovative projects and work on finding their financing and providing their legal security, allowing them to progress in their development.
It's a truly exciting activity!
