Global law firm White & Case LLP has expanded its Global Debt Finance Practice with the addition of Jaime Rossi as a partner in Madrid.
"White & Case has developed a reputation in the Spanish market for supporting landmark deals for large listed Spanish corporates and global investment banks," said White & Case partner Eric Leicht, head of the Firm's Global Debt Finance Practice. "Adding another experienced debt finance lawyer like Jaime to the partner mix in Madrid sends a clear message that we have not settled, and intend to build on our run acting for some of the biggest, most sophisticated players in the Spanish market."
Jaime advises international sponsors, financial institutions, debt funds and corporate borrowers on financing transactions across the full credit spectrum, from loan origination and syndication to restructuring and distressed investment. His experience in domestic and cross-border transactions includes a particular focus on advising borrowers and lenders on leverage acquisition finance, real estate finance, syndicated lending and restructurings. He joins White & Case from Herbert Smith Freehills, where he was of counsel, and brings nearly 20 years of experience.
"Jaime is an experienced lawyer with excellent technical skills and a strong market reputation whose broad finance practice and client relationships are an exciting fit with our established practice in Madrid," said White & Case partner Colin Harley, Regional Section Head, EMEA Banking. "He joins Madrid's active banking team, led by partner Fernando Navarro, and is another high quality addition to our strong banking team in Spain and across EMEA more broadly."
White & Case partner Oliver Brettle, a member of the Firm's global Executive Committee, said: "Jaime is the fourth lateral partner to join our successful EMEA banking practice in 2022, following the additions of Monica Barton and Paul Yin in London, and Neeloferr Roy in Paris. He also represents the continuation of an exciting year for our strategically important Madrid office, where we have further strengthened our M&A capabilities with the addition of lateral partner Javier Monzón from Freshfields."
