Simmons lures partner from Deloitte

Simmons & Simmons grows Dispute Resolution team in Spain with the incorporation of Santiago Hurtado as a partner, who joins from Deloitte´s Litigation and Insolvency area

International law firm Simmons & Simmons has announced that its Dispute Resolution offer will be bolstered by the arrival of Santiago Hurtado as a partner in the firm’s Madrid office. He will join existing Litigation partners Andrés Mochales, Fernando Aizpún and Raquel Ballesteros on 5 October.

Santiago joins the firm from Deloitte Legal, where he has been head of Litigation and Insolvency since 2013. In addition to this role, he is also a Commercial Law associate professor at Universidad Complutense de Madrid. He is a State Attorney on leave of absence, and was general counsel and Technical Secretary-General of Spain´s Ministry of Justice.

Santiago (pictured) is a very distinguished practitioner in Restructuring and Insolvency, and his expertise in Dispute Resolution ranges from Commercial and Civil issues to M&A disputes, Competition Law, tortious liability and shareholder-company conflicts. Listed in prestigious international rankings, he is the second partner to join the firm’s Madrid office in less than a month.

On welcoming Santiago to the firm, Litigation partner Andrés Mochales said: “It is great to have Santiago join the Simmons Dispute Resolution team in Madrid. His arrival futureproofs the Spanish DR offering out of Madrid, and offers our clients in the Financial sector further nuance in the Litigation advice that we can provide.”

On joining the firm, Santiago commented: “With its international network, Simmons’ Dispute Resolution team is ideally placed to carry out the cross-border work that will become the norm in the post-COVID global context. Having now joined the firm, I look forward to lending my expertise to the matters that will arise as a result of the pandemic, and beyond.”
