EY Abogados has incorporated a 21-strong team of professionals from consultancy firm Atomm.
The team – which is led by partner Jorge Baztarrica and has particular expertise in the field of research and development (R&D) – will join EY Abogados’ business taxation department.
In addition to its Spanish business, Atomm also has a presence in Colombia and Mexico.
Federico Linares, managing partner of EY Abogados, said: “The incorporation of a highly specialised team in the field of R&D is part of our growth strategy based on providing the highest quality advice – we see strong synergies with other areas of the firm.”
Baztarrica, who founded Atomm said: “Integration with EY was a clear opportunity for us. It allows us to join a team and bring our expertise in tax relating to R&D, while expanding the international scope of services that we provide, and promoting offices we have in Mexico and Colombia.”
