Cuatrecasas has strengthened its team in the Valencia and Alicante offices with the appointment of Agustín Cerdá as the new head of Finance for the autonomous communities of Valencia and Murcia. This consolidates the firm’s positioning in the practice and confirms its firm commitment to an operational field in continuing development.
Agustín Cerdá has an extensive career path in Cuatrecasas as a specialist in syndicated and bilateral financing, and project finance—mainly in the renewable energy sector—in Spain, the United States and Latin America. He also advises banks and large companies on designing, negotiating and implementing complex, multijurisdictional financing structures and security arrangements. He speaks regularly at specialized centers and also lectures on banking and finance law in the Master in European Business Law at Madrid’s Comillas Pontifical University-ICADE and on project finance in the Expert in Quantitative Finance Program at International Financial Analysts (AFI).
With a degree in Law and Economics (completed with special distinction in both disciplines) from the University of Valencia, and a master’s from Harvard University, he developed the largest part of his career at the Cuatrecasas Madrid office, and was the founding partner of the Mexico City office. In addition to specializing in business financing and project finance, he is a member of the firm’s Energy and Infrastructure Practice. The main legal referral guides have highlighted him for his project finance practice.
Speaking about his new position in the firm, Cerdá indicates, "We believe that the Valencia and Alicante region is going to be an important focus of development for the country and the firm is doubling down on its commitment, with the opening of new offices and investment in the relevant hiring to strengthen the main practice areas.” He adds that "the clients ask us for increasingly differentiated value in the services we provide; we can only meet this demand if, in addition to providing technical excellence, we are familiar with the singularities of the business sectors in which we operate.”
