Joaquín Echánove said: “It is a pleasure to have accompanied TDR Capital and the David Lloyd group on their expansion in Spain with the acquisition of this group of sports centers. We are pleased that DLA Piper were trusted advisors to close complex operations and implement its ambitious expansion plan.”
