Dentons‘ three-strong Spanish practice advises on a wide range of cross-border transactions and renewable energy projects, and earns plaudits for its ‘deep knowledge of the energy sector’, as well as for its ‘extensive experience and market know-how’. The department has seen some changes, with the arrival in April 2021 of Fermín Garbayo, who boosted the team’s capabilities in the financing of renewable projects, but the departure of former department head Javier Lasa.
