Baker McKenzie appoints new partner for its Madrid office

Baker McKenzie has announced Paul Amberg as a new partner in its Madrid office

The lawyer, who specialises in foreign trade matters with a focus on the US and European Law, advises Spanish and international multinationals on a wide range of trade and compliance matters, focusing primarily on international sanctions, export controls, anti-corruption and customs laws. Paul regularly assists companies in identifying and managing Compliance risks, advising on Compliance programmes, audits, voluntary disclosures and governance enforcement actions.

Paul (pictured) holds a degree in Economics and Law from the University of Illinois and joined Baker McKenzie in 2006, where he has worked in the Chicago (where he made partner in 2015) and Amsterdam offices, joining to Madrid from the latter.

Cecilia Pastor, partner in charge of the Trade & Commerce practice in the Madrid office commented: “Paul’s incorporation responds to an increasingly clear need for our clients to understand the international geopolitical context from a Legal perspective and how it affects exporters. Highly specialised advice – with a focus on both the US and EMEA – is increasingly necessary, and Paul has been consistently providing this to Baker McKenzie clients over the last few years in other offices of the firm.”
