Whitewell has advised Antonio Diaz´s group of companies (artistically known as “El Mago Pop”) on the sign of an agreement with The Shubert Organization to program his show “Nothing is Impossible” at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre.
Morad Maanan, partner at Whitewell Legal, has been in charge of leading this operation. He holds a degree in Law from the University of Granada, a Master’s Degree in Business Law and Legal Practice from the Business School of the CEU San Pablo University, a Course in Business Administration from Imperial College Business School and legal and business studies at the Escuela de Empresa (EAE). He has developed his professional career in several leading international law firms, such as Clifford Chance, Roca Junyent and Carles Cuesta.
He has been recognised as one of the “TOP 50 Iberian Lawyer Rising Stars” in Spain and Portugal (Iberian Lawyer, 2020) and combines his professional activity with teaching, giving classes in some of the most prestigious Spanish universities (CEU San Pablo, University of Navarra and ISDE Law Business School, among others).
He specialises in M&A and corporate law, and also intervenes in commercial litigation and corporate disputes, as well as in public law and regulated sectors. He has participated in different transactions advising clients, both public and private, in matters related to the real estate market, such as acquisition, refurbishment, commercialisation (sale and lease) and transfer of all types of real estate.
This agreement with The Shubert Organization to program his show “Nothing is Impossible” at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre is unprecedented; not only because the american partner is The Shubert Organization (one of the most important theatre companies in the world and the main owner of Broadway theatres), but, above all, because it is the first national production in history to land on Broadwa.
With this project, Antonio Díaz also becomes the youngest illusionist in the history of Broadway (in its 250 years of history).
