Cuatrecasas appoints new director in China

Cuatrecasas has appointed Sandra Costas (pictured) as the new head of its China office, a position she will hold jointly with partners Omar Puertas and Pablo Cubel.

Costas has a degree in Law from the University of Santiago de Compostela, with a specialization in Foreign Trade Management, and has 20 years of experience as a corporate lawyer, developing her professional career for most of that time based in Asia.

Before joining Cuatrecasas, she worked in China at the law firm DLA Piper, and held other positions in different institutions such as the Commercial Section of the Spanish Embassy and the Spanish Chamber of Commerce in China.

She is also a specialist in cross-border commercial transactions (direct investments, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, special purpose vehicles and restructurings) and commercial transactions between Asia, Europe and the Americas, representing clients from the industrial, consumer and financial sectors in their various stages of investment and transactions.

“I am grateful for the trust placed in me and proud to be part of an institution that puts knowledge, innovation and people – whether lawyers, clients or partners – at the heart of everything it does,” said Costas.
