Linklaters has hired Alex Ferreres (pictured) as a new partner for its litigation, insolvency and arbitration department, making him the 21st partner in the Madrid office.
Ferreres joins Linklaters from Uría Menéndez, where he was made partner in 2006. He is the fifth partner Linklaters has added to its ranks in 2022 following the recent return home of Sebastián Albella and the internal promotions of Esteban Arza, Gabriel Cabello and Pablo Medina.
The new partner specialises in procedural law and has years of experience in national and international commercial litigation. He also specialises in defending companies in class actions and his litigation practice includes participation in the defence of very important civil liability cases that have been settled in Spain in the last decade, where he has defended the interests of companies in the pharmaceutical, tobacco and automobile sectors.
“We remain faithful to our commitment to internal talent and to recognising the excellent track record of our lawyers, but whenever the opportunity arises to recruit the best lawyers in the market and incorporate them into our teams, we will do so. In such a demanding and competitive market, new recruits such as Alex confirm the good momentum of the Madrid project and the firm’s firm commitment to our office”, said José Giménez, managing partner of Linklaters in Spain.
