Gómez-Acebo & Pombo has approved the appointment of Carlos Rueda as the new senior partner of the firm with effect from January 1, 2024 and for the statutory term of three years.
Carlos Rueda joined the firm in 1992 and was appointed partner in the banking and capital markets area in 2001. He headed the Lisbon office between 2014 and 2015 and was appointed managing partner of the firm for the period 2016-2022. He is currently Chairman of the Board of Directors of Gómez-Acebo & Pombo, a position that he will continue to hold after his appointment as senior partner.
In the words of Iñigo Erlaiz, current managing partner of Gómez-Acebo & Pombo, “representing the Firm’s values and being a benchmark in them for the group are essential conditions to be a good Senior Partner. Carlos has these qualities and, therefore, has the necessary authority and recognition to be able to carry out this function; a function that, in its internal and external projection, adds a lot of value to an already fully institutionalized firm, like ours”.
For his part, Carlos Rueda stated that “it is a source of pride and a great responsibility to assume the position of senior partner after all these years in the firm and to be able to collect and project into the future such a valuable legacy. I am very grateful for the confidence of my partners for this appointment.”
