The new partners, from the Madrid, Barcelona and Lisbon offices, were appointed at the general meeting of partners. Their appointments imply a strengthening in all law practice areas.

In 2013, the Iberian firm started out on a roadmap based on a human element, the development of business with further innovation in legal counseling, and greater international weight

 

Cuatrecasas, Gonçalves Pereira appointed six new partners at its first general meeting held in Barcelona on April 11 and 12.

 

The firm’s new partners are:

 

-       Jaime de la Torre (Madrid Corporate Finance Practice)

-       Paulo de Sá e Cunha (Lisbon Economic Criminal Law Practice)

-       Alfredo Domínguez (Madrid Criminal Law Practice)

-       Ismael González (Barcelona Financial and Tax Law Practice)

-       Ignacio Jabato (Madrid Labor and Employment Practice)

-       Nuria Nicolau (Barcelona Tax Litigation Practice)

 

The new partners provide great weight for the four main areas of law practiced at the firm, particularly in procedural and financial law. With these latest appointments, the firm now has 233 partners.

 

 

People and business

 

Rafael Fontana, managing director of Cuatrecasas, Gonçalves Pereira, emphasized the strategic challenges of the firm for 2013, based on people and business. The first axis, focused on the Iberian firm’s human element, is making progress in matters of equality; the second is launching an ambitious business development plan, with further innovation in legal counseling and greater weight on the foreign market through the international offices.

 

These last two points involve fully integrating the activity generated within the firm both in practice areas and in local and international offices. The Iberian firm intends to increase its position on the global market by strengthening the strategic role of its international offices, particularly in London, New York, Sao Paulo and Shanghai, where the firm will commit greater resources to strengthen the Corporate Practice. “When the outbound works starts coming from China to Europe, we have to be ready to capture it,” Rafael Fontana stated.
