Andersen appoints new director for its Barcelona’s office

Andersen has appointed Juan Ignacio Alonso Dregi (pictured centre) as director of the Barcelona office with the aim of giving new impulse to the local practice.

Alonso Dregi holds a law degree from the CEU Abat Oliba University and has more than 25 years of experience in which he has advised many companies in mergers and acquisitions, in investments of spanish companies in their internationalisation processes, as well as in the establishment of foreign companies in Spain. He has also participated in restructuring operations in various sectors, with particular experience in real estate, automotive and retail. Previously, he has developed his career in law firms such as Garrigues or Dentons.

The managing partners of Andersen in Iberia, José Vicente Morote (pictured left) and Íñigo Rodríguez-Sastre (pictured right), have underlined that this new impulse coincides with the change of office in Barcelona, which is now based in the Beethoven Building, located in Avenida Diagonal, 618, and which was also the first headquarters of Arthur Andersen in Barcelona.

“A new turning point in which we unite the values of work, excellence and teamwork with the future of the firm in a region that is one of the main economic engines of the country,” they said.
