Francisco Villalonga began his working life with a local insurance company, where he started out in administration and soon created and directed the commercial department. He then worked in the organization of a well-known Valencia-located trade fair.

Francisco joined Herrero & Asociados in 1990 and has been working in Intellectual Property, performing mostly functions of management and client relations, but also IP-related consultancy services and portfolio advice, pre-lawsuit work for IP conflicts, trade mark availability searches and prior-art searches.
