Until now, Delgado Echevarría was a partner in the competition law practice and led the intellectual property practice. With this appointment, she will succeed Mercedes Fernández, who has served since 2011, and will continue to serve clients as partner and head of the firm’s international litigation and arbitration practice.

The new managing partner has worked at Jones Day for 22 years and has advised national and international clients from numerous sectors on all aspects of antitrust law, including mergers and acquisitions, cartels, abuse of dominance, distribution agreements, licensing and unfair competition.

“Marta has established herself as a respected lawyer at Jones Day and is highly regarded by clients across Europe for her representation of global companies in high-stakes matters affecting the technology, energy, automotive, pharmaceutical and tobacco industries,” says Luis Riesgo, partner responsible for Spain/Latin America at Jones Day.
