Dentons has appointed Santiago Hurtado (pictured left) as a new partner in the litigation practice. Hurtado is joined by Javier Royo as counsel, both from Simmons & Simmons.

With more than 20 years of experience, Santiago Hurtado specialises in litigation and corporate matters related to shareholder disputes. Throughout his career, he has advised both financial institutions and debtors in complex restructurings and insolvencies, including some of the largest and most important insolvency proceedings filed in Spain.

Prior to joining Dentons, he was the managing partner of the dispute resolution practice in the Madrid office of Simmons & Simmons and, before that, he was a partner at Deloitte Legal, where he headed the restructuring and insolvency practice.

“I am very much looking forward to the challenge of joining Dentons in Spain, a firm that is not only truly global, but which has experienced dynamic development in the Spanish market in recent years,” said new litigation partner, Santiago Hurtado.
