Dentons incorporates partner from GA_P
Dentons has appointed Fermín Garbayo, who leaves Gómez-Acebo & Pombo, as the new head partner of the Energy area
Following the recent incorporation of José María García Santos as a partner in the Litigation department, this new signing reinforces the commitment of the international firm led by Jabier Badiola to growth in Spain, which involves strengthening its most strategic areas in order to consolidate its position among the leading business law firms in the Spanish market.
Garbayo (pictured right) is a recognised expert in the acquisition and financing of renewable energy projects, both green and brownfield, as well as in the negotiation of construction contracts, Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) and O&M contracts.
Throughout his professional career, the new partner in charge of Dentons’ Energy area has been advising some of the main Spanish electricity companies on contractual matters for the diversification of their value-added product offering, as well as on Insolvency and Litigation, and national and international funds on the acquisition and/or development of energy and infrastructure projects, mainly in Spain. A partner at Gómez-Acebo & Pombo since 2004, he led the opening of its office in London (2007) and Lisbon (2009).
“The incorporation of an outstanding professional such as Fermín Garbayo to the firm is a reflection of our commitment to excellence and our commitment to offer the best quality advice to both national and international companies in such a strategic practice area in the Spanish and Latin American market as Energy,” stated Jabier Badiola (pictured left), managing partner of Dentons.
Fermín Garbayo said: “Joining the largest law firm in the world, which is also a dynamic firm committed to its clients, will allow me to take part in new professional projects of the highest level, which is undoubtedly a decisive factor in taking the step towards this new challenge in my career.”
