Juan Manuel Rodríguez Cárcamo  – Pérez-Llorca

Juan Manuel Rodríguez Cárcamo steers the public law practice at Pérez-Llorca; he is well known for his expertise advising on the gamut of matters in this field, including public procurement, project finance, transport and infrastructure matters, as well as litigation in both EU and national courts. He is closely supported by Elena Veleiro, who is experienced in public procurement, and has also represented several public entities in litigation arising from administrative contracts and asset liability claims.

Spain > Industry focus: Healthcare and life sciences

The healthcare and life sciences group at Pérez-Llorca was notably reinforced in September 2021 with the arrival of partner Eduardo Castillo and senior associates Álvaro de Castro and Joaquín Rovira from Gómez-Acebo & Pombo. They bring a wealth of expertise in pharmaceutical patent litigation to the practice, which is led by public law expert Juan Manuel Rodríguez Cárcamo and has experience advising on M&A and regulatory mandates in the sector.

Spain > Dispute resolution

Dispute resolution is a core strength for Pérez-Llorca, which balances a busy practice covering litigation and arbitration. In the former, antitrust damages litigation is a notable area of focus, as are construction and energy-related cases. The firm is also well versed in cases before the European Court of Justice (ECJ), where public and EU law specialist Juan Manuel Rodríguez Cárcamo has particular expertise representing banking-sector clients. The firm has steadily expanded its team in recent years; partner-level hires during 2020 included Jordi Gras, who joined the Barcelona office from EY Abogados in June of that year, and Ignacio Santabaya from Jones Day and Julio Parrilla from Dentons, who both joined in September. Also joining from Dentons in September 2020 was counsel Arancha Barandiarán, who has developed a strong practice in real estate and commercial litigation. The highly experienced Félix Montero leads the team, which also includes Beatriz García, who has vast experience in civil and administrative courts and arbitration proceedings, Guillermina Ester, Javier García Marrero, a partner since 2020, and Laura Ruiz, who was promoted to partner in 2021.
