September issue of Iberian Lawyer now online

The September issue of Iberian Lawyer is now available for free download

In this issue, Iberian Lawyer offers its research about the presence of women lawyers in Top 40 Portuguese and Spanish law firms, showing that parity is closer each year but still something to gain in a partner-level reality. In general, Portugal wins over Spain in the gender equality arena.

We start September with new energies interviewing Mª Pilar García Guijarro, who besides WFW´s managing partner, is an expert lawyer in Energy and a mother of three. She tells us how she broke the famous “ceiling glass.”

Heading North, we count with Jabier Badiola, who explains to us how he received the request to lead in Spain the biggest law firm in the world, after Jesús Varela´s departure.

Other features include:

.- An analysis of Private Equity Start-ups investments by experts from DWF-RCD and Alter Life Sciences.
