The former managing partner of Clifford Chance in Spain, Ignacio Ojanguren, has joined Ontier.
Ojanguren will have the title international president at Ontier, a role previously occupied by Adolfo Suárez.
Ojanguren was a partner at Clifford Chance from 1994 to 2001, and managing partner of the firm’s Spain operation from 2001 to 2013.
His expertise includes mergers and acquisitions, and he has advised a number of major listed companies, financial institutions and funds.
After leaving Clifford Chance, Ojanguren founded the ‘Lateral’ restaurant business.
Bernardo Gutiérrez de la Roza, CEO of Ontier, said Ojanguren’s “experience not only in the field of law at a national and international level in one of the most recognised firms, but also as an entrepreneur, is key to continuing our growth strategy.”
