Gómez-Acebo & Pombo‘s ‘extraordinary‘ team stands out for its expertise in advising lenders on major restructurings and handling high-profile transactions in the Spanish market; large-scale insolvency proceedings are also prominent in the group’s workload. Miguel Lamo de Espinosa leads the restructuring side of the practice, and other key contacts include Rafael Aguilera, London-based Ferran Foix, Santiago Gómez-Acebo and newly promoted partner Paula Zarzalejos. Contentious insolvency matters are led by Rodrigo López, with support from Irene Arévalo, who made partner in January 2022.
The ‘agile and committed‘ lawyers at Gómez-Acebo & Pombo ‘understand complicated evidence and take into account the surrounding situation to ensure legal advice of the highest quality‘. The firm is well versed in all phases of a dispute, from advising on pre-litigation strategies to representing clients before courts of first instance and appellate courts. The team has also established an impressive reputation in international arbitration, thanks in large part to the guidance of Inés Vázquez, who is highly regarded for her ‘extensive knowledge and experience‘, which extends to ICSID and SCC proceedings in addition to litigation. Vázquez and insolvency and civil litigation expert Rodrigo López jointly lead the team, which is sought out by major companies, investment funds and financial institutions. Irene Arévalo, who made partner in January 2022, combines expertise in commercial litigation and insolvency. Associates Teresa Gutiérrez Chacón and Luis López Alonso are also establishing good reputations in the market. The team was strengthened further at partner level with the hires of Almudena Larrañaga and Luis García del Río from litigation and arbitration boutique DRL Abogados in February 2023.
