Guillermo Guerra Martín is the resident takeover bid and corporate governance expert; meanwhile, Augusto Piñel is the go-to for deals in the financial services sector, often working alongside the finance and tax practices on the structuring and financing of major deals.
Gómez-Acebo & Pombo‘s increasingly diverse offering in debt capital markets has grown to cover areas including investment grade debt offerings, high-yield bonds and private placements. The team stands out for providing frequent counsel to US private placement investors in Spanish transactions, and for its longstanding securitisation practice. Practice co-head Guillermo Guerra is recommended by a client as ‘the right partner for a capital markets strategy‘, and his partner in leading the practice is Ferran Foix, who handles cross-border work and divides his time between Madrid and London. Augusto Piñel and securitisations specialist Fernando Herrero are also key contacts.
