White & Case recruits Allen & Overy arbitration specialist

White & Case’s Madrid office has recruited Allen & Overy arbitration specialist Ignacio Madalena.

Madalena will have the task of helping to build up White & Case’s arbitration practice in Spain. He will join White & Case as counsel, he was also counsel at Allen & Overy.

A White & Case statement said: “Arbitrations involving Spanish clients have been growing steadily in recent years, particularly cases related to Latin America. This is because, in addition to the significant presence of Spanish companies in the region, it is a practice that avoids the need to resolve disputes in the local courts, as well as being a more effective way of obtaining an award.

Madalena spent eight years at Allen & Overy, prior to that he was a lawyer at B. Cremades y Asociados.

Juan Manuel de Remedios (pictured, right, with Ignacio Madalena), managing partner of White & Case in Spain, said: “Arbitration is the preferred method throughout the world for solving international commercial disputes and it is a practice that our clients are increasingly demanding in Spain.”
