The law firm led by Jacobo Martínez has closed its 2022 financial year with a turnover of €20.15 million, which represents a 15% growth compared to the previous year.
The spanish office continues with sustained growth following the increase in business in 2021 of 21.3% (€17.6 million), placing it as one of the firms with the highest increase in the last two financial years in which it has grown by nearly 40% in turnover, in line with the growth target set by the firm to reach revenues of €30 million by the end of the 2025 financial year.
In this context, in 2022, professionals joined the firm to promote or strengthen strategic practice areas in the Spanish market. Thus, the firm incorporated Rafael Cruz Torres, as counsel of the energy department, and Rafael Gil Nievas, deputy head of the International Arbitration Department of the State Attorney General’s Office, to reinforce the litigation and arbitration area. In addition, Teresa Villarroya was promoted to partner of the banking and financial law department.
This past year the firm strengthened the Compliance & ESG (environmental, social and corporate governance) area, a practice of extreme relevance and in continuous growth, with the signing of Elena Herrero-Visairas, reaffirming its commitment to the highest quality advice on sustainability. A practice led by partner María Hernández, who also leads the Compliance Committee of the Alliance of Latin American law firms of Eversheds Sutherland International.
The appointment of Jacobo Martínez as a new member of the European Executive Committee and head of the human resources area of the firm at global level, which means a great recognition of the Spanish firm in the global network of Eversheds Sutherland, and the incorporation of María Eugenia Fanjul as new general manager, to give a decisive boost to the professionalization and institutionalization of the firm in Spain.
Throughout 2023, the international firm will continue on the path set by its strategic plan in Spain, promoting its objectives of strengthening its transactional and specialized profile, focusing on retaining and attracting talent, diversity and inclusion, and consolidating its leadership in Latin America.
