Dentons’ spanish office partner, Nieves Briz (pictured), has been appointed co-head of the firm’s consumer products and services group in Europe. She will lead the team alongside Babette Marzheuser-Wood, managing director of Dentons franchise advisory and Wendela Raas, the Amsterdam’s office partner who will head the group globally.
The consumer products and services group was recently established and focuses on providing comprehensive legal advice to clients in the retail, consumer goods, luxury, food and beverage, and hospitality and leisure sectors.
Nieves Briz is a partner in the firm’s corporate and M&A department and head of Dentons’ Barcelona office. She also has more than 30 years of experience advising clients on M&A transactions, as well as on corporate governance and compliance issues.
“The retail and consumer sector is in a state of disruption stemming from consumer demand, supply chain challenges and, of course, online retail and digitalisation. Our focus in Europe will be on providing quality solutions to help customers respond to these challenges,” says Nieves Briz.
