Marc Molins i Raich

Doctor in Law
Partner

Due to his early vocation for criminal law and procedural sciences, Marc is exclusively devoted to the representation and defence of alien interests before criminal justice since the very beginning of his professional activity. Economic criminal law, forensic evidence and criminal procedural law are his areas of expertise, and he has defended natural and legal persons, both private and public, in any class of legal proceedings. Besides, he complements his law professional practice with a sound commitment to continuous education, resulting in the publication of various doctrinal articles in books and specialised magazines, the participation in forums and doctrinal discussions, as well as the foundation of a stable teaching link with the law faculty and the bodies responsible for the education of new lawyers. According to him, both his professional vocation and the need for continuous education result from the same fact: a strong commitment to law and to the defence of the interests entrusted to him.
