On the cover, Iberian Lawyer highlights the Best 60 Iberian Lawyers in Business Law and previews the summary of the Forty under 40 Awards 2021 that you will find in this issue together with the IP & TMT Awards in Portugal.

In On the Move, our readers will find some of the most outstanding lateral hirings and movements of the last period in Spain and Portugal. Meanwhile, in On the Web, we observe how Legal engineering is gaining positions in all areas and sectors.

In the Law Firm Profile section, Iberian Lawyer spoke with DLA Piper about the consolidation of the ESG practice and talked with the firm’s practice co-heads in Spain; Joaquín Hervada and Paz de la Iglesia, a practice consolidated after a year of its implementation in Spain. On this issue, we also take a closer look at Cerejeira Namora, Marinho Falcão and its managing partner, Nuno Cerejeira Namora, who, in addition to Law, studied Journalism. The Portuguese law firm will celebrate its 30th anniversary next year.

From the in-house world, this month we bring Álvaro Mena, director of Labor Relations at Globalvia and Tiago Severim Melo, corporate secretary and general counsel at Brisa. And we go to Chicago to pay a virtual visit to José Antonio Morán, head of Baker McKenzie Global Energy, Mining and Infrastructure practice and partner in the firm´s Chicago office.

As of October’s Young and Unstoppable, Iberian Lawyer presents Carmen del Castillo Vericat, a brilliant and generous young lawyer who advocates for associationism and companionship. She is, since 2020, vice president of the Barcelona Young Lawyers Group (GAJ) and, last summer, she was appointed executive officer of the European Association of Young Lawyers.

From its sister magazine MAG, Iberian Lawyer brings you the interviews of; Luca Radicati di Brozolo, founding partner of the Milan-based law firm ArbLit, which has just launched a desk for Spanish and Latin American matters; Enrico Favale, head of Legal Affairs at FCA Bank and the article by Ilaria Iaquinta, editorial director of LC Publishing Group and Iberian Legal Group on the EU Court’s reiteration of the gender pay equality petition.

Finally, we ask ourselves if lawyers can be happy or if they are actually destined -or not- to be so. Coaches and experts in the Legal sector María Jesús González-Espejo (Chusa) and Bárbara de Eliseu help us to decipher it in our opinion section.

The usual contributions by members of the Association of Corporate Counsel, World Compliance Association and Women in a Legal World complete this issue.
