Dentons has appointed Itxaso López as partner for Real Estate
Dentons has appointed Itxaso López (pictured), who until now held the position of counsel at the firm, as a partner in the Real Estate department. The promotion is part of the firm’s clear commitment to this practice, one of the most active and consolidated in the firm. Proof of this is the recent incorporation of Roberto Tojo to lead the area in Spain, with the aim of continuing to lead some of the most relevant and largest transactions in the market, in which great activity is expected in the coming years.
López has more than 15 years of experience in the Real Estate sector advising national and international investors in all types of real estate operations. Throughout her professional career, she has participated in a multitude of sales, promotion and financing operations. She has advised on projects in all types of sectors, including residential, hotel, logistics, office, shopping centres, and more recently, data centres. In recent months, she has participated in some of the most outstanding transactions in the Spanish market, leading the first purchase in Spain by Scannell Properties, the sale of the Hotel Axel in Barcelona, or advising KKRR and Global Infrastructure Partners on the acquisition of CyrusOne.
Prior to joining Dentons in 2015, she worked in other important law firms such as Cuatrecasas and Gómez-Acebo & Pombo.
Jabier Badiola, managing partner of Dentons in Spain, highlights Itxaso’s great experience and recognition in the Spanish real estate sector. “Her promotion is part of our clear commitment to the internal career of our lawyers and the retention of the best talent,” he says.
For her part, the new partner of the firm assures that, “Dentons Spain has one of the most diversified practices in the real estate sector in our country that allows us to participate in large operations. I am very happy and proud to work in a global firm with one of the largest and best valued Real Estate practices in all of Europe, with an excellent team of lawyers with a lot of experience in sophisticated transactions.”
