To round off this special feature, we asked the Human Resources director at EY Abogados, Lucía Jaquotot (pictured), about these professionals, who gives us an "insider's" view and confirms that they are a key element in the management of Legal services.
Iberian Lawyer interviews Víctor García López (pictured), a Spanish Brussels-based consultant in the EU Regulatory and Public Affairs practice of Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer. A sort of paralegal whose team provides with in-house strategic policy advice to help clients shape legislation and administrative decisions in Brussels. As we could know, In-house Public Affairs departments in law firms are not yet significantly developed in Spain, unlike in companies or dedicated Public Affairs consultancies.

Dealmaking as continuous learning

Our Young and Unstoppable for May is Bosco De Checa (pictured), a senior associate at Allen & Overy. This 30-something lawyer was on the verge of becoming a professional golfer but life, and the lawyer movies he watched with his father led him to "compete" as a Corporate specialist on the deal board. He admits that he particularly enjoys cross-border transactions; because of this, he chose this magic circle firm to develop his career. Now, seven years after joining A&O, this promising young star, who seems to be steadily making his way to partner, tells us how the top of the dealmaking stakes are forged
She left Science for Arts studies. This 28-year-old lawyer has gained a very solid position within the profession, specifically in her specialities; Public Procurement, Commercial and Corporate Law among others. As a lawyer at Mariscal & Abogados for almost three years, she recognises that mentoring is a fundamental part of learning, especially in the legal sector. Working with clients from several jurisdictions, she is grateful for her international training for the possibilities of meeting people from other countries and living with different cultures, as well as being tolerant and versatile at work.
Iberian Lawyer travelled to Miami to get to know Ricardo Oliveras, selected by Iberian Lawyer in the last February issue as one of the best lawyers in the Sports Law practice in our country. A partner at ECIJA for more than seven years, he now lives between the United States and Spain and acknowledges that "landing" in Miami is comfortable on a personal level due to its international component and the influence of Latin American culture. His teaching and approachable nature have broadened our vision of the magnitude of the issues covered by Sports Law which, fortunately, goes beyond football stars and millionaire contracts.

In 2020, Cláudia was the top female dealmaker in Portugal, with six transactions totalling €3.8 billion. Cláudia joined VdA in 1999 and, during a career spanning over two decades, has been involved in a number of transactions, mainly focused on acquisition finance, corporate finance and acquisitions and sales of companies. Iberian Lawyer spoke with Cláudia about her experience of being a successful woman in law, how she sees the development of gender equality and the culture at VdA.
Ignacio Fernández is the Dentons' dolphin in the field of Aviation Law, specifically in all matters relating to Aircraft Finance, his speciality. He proudly acknowledges that he belongs to a pioneering team in these matters, which is currently led by his colleagues Jabier Badiola and Luis Belart. At the age of 30, he has already been part of very important matters in this sector and shows himself as a brilliant, constant and non-conformist young man who lives each day as an opportunity to consolidate his knowledge and continue to grow.
Iberian Lawyer travels to the capital of China to meet Pablo Cubel, managing partner of the Cuatrecasas office in Beijing. In his 22 years with the firm, he has worked in Madrid, Valencia, and his current destination, and he admits that time has passed quickly. This versatile lawyer describes the “Northern capital” as a fascinating city, both from a professional and personal perspective. In an exclusive interview, he tells Iberian Lawyer that his plans for 2021 are to get vaccinated and return.
