C&L hires Corporate M&A partner from Clifford Chance

Cases & Lacambra has strengthened Corporate and M&A area with Jose Manuel Llanos as a new partner in the Madrid office, joining the team led by Lucas Palomar

The firm maintains its strategic commitment to strengthen one of the most competitive, international, and fastest developing areas in the market, Corporate & M&A.

Jose Manuel Llanos (pictured right) holds a degree in Law from the University of Alfonso X El Sabio, an LLM from American University Washington College of Law, and he specialises in Law, Development and Diplomacy at Georgetown University.

With nearly 15 years of experience in Corporate advisory, he specialises in cross-border and domestic Mergers and Acquisitions, Joint Ventures, Private Equity and Venture Capital transactions, advising across a wide range of sectors on major energy, infrastructure and telecommunications projects. He also has experience advising on Corporate Restructurings and advising on Compliance, Corporate secretarial and Contractual matters.

The new partner of the firm developed his professional career at Cuatrecasas as a senior associate in the Corporate & M&A team and, prior to joining Cases & Lacambra, at Clifford Chance, where he was responsible for advising major national and international Corporate clients, taking part in the most important transactions in recent years, both in Spain and in Europe.

The firm adds a new partner with extensive experience, who will strengthen a strategic area, as well as the key location Madrid, from where he will offer his advice. It also represents another step forward in the strategy of the firm to maintain its strong vocation for specialisation without losing its essence.

“The Corporate and M&A group has experienced significant growth in recent years. The experience and technical profile of Jose Manuel will allow us to offer a much more complete, multi-sectoral service in line with the new challenges and our commitment to being the best in strategic practices for our clients but at the same time profitable,” said Miguel Cases (pictured left), co-managing partner of Cases & Lacambra. “We continue to strengthen our team with the best talent that will surely contribute to the firm’s growth projection for the coming years,” added Ernesto Lacambra, co-managing partner of the firm.
