Former Minister Rafael Catalá, new partner of Carles Cuesta Abogados

Former Minister of Justice leaves his position on the Advisory Board of Herbert Smith Freehills

Catalá (pictured), one of the promoters of the Reform of the Insolvency Law and promoter of important changes in the current Procedural legislation, thus becomes the first partner of Carles Cuesta Abogados which, until now, only had its founders in the share capital.

This is a strategic signing, with which the Spanish boutique significantly strengthens the growing expansion experienced in recent years. Among the various functions, the new partner will provide key support in the management of the firm. A task that, in Catalá’s own words, he assumes with enormous commitment and enthusiasm.

In addition to being Minister of Justice between 2014 and 2018, Catalá holds a degree in Law from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, is a  senior member of the State Civil Administration and has extensive experience in the private sector and in the Ministries of Health, Public Administration, Justice, Education and Finance.

During these last years, among other positions, he was named head of Legal of Codere Spanish gaming multinational last September, as informed by Iberian Lawyer.
