Bocanegra is a Law graduate in the field of Public Law (Universidad de Sevilla) and an Administrative Manager.
Specialising in foreign issues, he is a lecturer and author of numerous articles in his field. He has participated in many forums and round tables aimed at foreign investors and he is an advocate of residential tourism, which he considers fundamental for the economies of the Costa del Sol and the entire province of Málaga.
In April 1982, he founded Gestoría Bocanegra. From the start, it specialised in issues surrounding foreigners and, in record time, it became the most important agency in Andalucía taking care of foreign nationals.
Ricardo Bocanegra has always been at the forefront of defending foreign nationals’ interests, as he is conscious of the fundamental importance of residential tourism for Málaga’s economy.
To further support foreign residents, Bocanegra founded the Federation of Associations of Foreign Nationals in the Costa del Sol (Federación de Asociaciones de Extranjeros de la Costa del Sol – FAECOSOL) in 1993. As president of FAECOSOL he made many advances that benefited foreigners in the region.
