Ashurst hires new partner in its litigation and arbitration area

Ashurst has hired José Ramón Casado (pictured) as a partner in the Madrid office. He will join the litigation and arbitration team led by José Antonio Rodríguez, who is on leave of absence from the spanish state attorney’s office.

Previously, José Ramón Casado developed his professional career at Baker McKenzie, where he has worked from 2005 to date heading the civil litigation and arbitration area.

With more than 23 years of experience, the new partner of Ashurst has a solid track record in commercial and civil litigation, as well as in domestic and international arbitration. By this incorporation, the number of partners in the Ashurst Madrid’s office will be 15.

“I am very excited about the opportunity that Ashurst gives me to face new challenges as part of a litigation and arbitration team that for me is undoubtedly one of the best in the spanish market, not only for the type of matters and clients they handle but also for the excellence of the professionals who make it up, starting with José Antonio Rodríguez. It is a privilege to be part of the Ashurst project and I will do my utmost to ensure that the firm continues to achieve great success,” says José Ramón Casado.
