Ontier appoints thirteen partners as owners

Ontier has appointed thirteen partners as owners of the firm, previously led by Bernardo Gutiérrez de la Roza (pictured left) and Pedro Rodero (pictured right).

Of these thirteen, six are partners from the firm’s offices in Spain, while the rest are from the firm’s foreign offices. Although Gutiérrez de la Roza and Rodero will continue to be the major shareholders, holding around 90% of the shares, the new owners will also be Eutimio Martínez, partner in insolvency and restructuring; Cristina Camarero, recently appointed managing partner and head of the Litigation and Arbitration practice; Pablo Enrile, partner in Corporate, M&A and Energy; and Carmen Bascarán, managing director of Ontier Global.

On the international side, Carmen Fernández, country manager of Ontier Italy, and Luca Pardo, managing partner of the italian office; Lorenzo Hernández and Jason E. Rosen, from Mexico and the US respectively; and three partners from Peru: Juan Enrique Dupuy (Corporate and M&A), Yessenia Paredes (Administrative, Litigation and Arbitration) and Fernán Romano Altuve-Febres (Litigation, Arbitration and Civil) have joined the team.

Through this decision, Ontier takes a further step in its strategy of professionalisation and growth. “We want to turn our company into something successive over time, and for that we have to facilitate a generational change. It is vital that other people join the ownership and have a return on their generation of value,” said Rodero.
