Global law firm White & Case LLP has today announced the opening of an office in Madrid, and the addition of partner Juan Manuel De Remedios, who joins as Madrid Office Executive Partner.
"This move fulfils our long-held ambition to have an office in Spain," said White & Case Chairman Hugh Verrier. "The launch of our office in Madrid, led by Juan Manuel, will support the needs of our clients investing in Spain as well as Spanish clients expanding globally."
White & Case's commitment to Spain—the Eurozone's fourth largest economy—extends more than 30 years. The Firm acts for clients including global companies and financial institutions in their cross-border activity.
De Remedios's practice will focus on M&A and capital markets, two of the Firm's global strategic priorities. He has been involved in several of the most complex and high profile transactions in Spain in recent years. He is dual-qualified in Spain and New York and joins the Firm from Latham & Watkins LLP where he was Chair of the Corporate Department in Spain.
"Opening an office in Spain, with the addition of a lawyer of Juan Manuel's caliber in Madrid, provides our clients with local knowledge coupled with access to our global network," said White & Case Spain Practice Head Michael Doran. "I am looking forward to working closely with Juan Manuel."
De Remedios will be joined by local partner Yoko Takagi, whose practice focuses on M&A and capital markets, and a team of associates. The Madrid office will advise clients on Spanish, US and cross-border legal issues of M&A, debt and equity capital markets, finance and restructuring, and will be supported by more than 60 Spanish-speaking lawyers who work on Spain-related matters from other White & Case offices.
White & Case is committed to strengthening its capital markets, M&A and disputes practices, globally. As part of this ongoing investment, the Firm recently announced the addition of five partners in Paris as part of the Firm's build-out of its finance capabilities across Western Europe.
