DLA Piper partner and former Allen & Overy managing partner Íñigo Gómez-Jordana has left the firm to launch his own legal boutique

Iñigo Gómez-Jordana (pictured) has over 30 years experience in magic circle firms, nearly 20 of them in senior positions. He joined DLA Piper Madrid office in 2014, where he has been the firm´s senior partner in Spain until his departure. He came from Allen & Overy, where he was the managing partner and senior partner. Prior to this, he worked at Clifford Chance for 14 years, making partner in 1994.

His practice is broad-based within the area of Commercial/Finance Law, with extensive experience in Capital Markets transactions including debt and equity, and in Corporate Finance and Corporate Transactions, especially in cross-border Mergers & Acquisitions and in numerous public take-overs. He has taken part in some of the largest transactions arranged in Spain over the last years in these areas.

Íñigo is a Law graduate from Universidad Complutense de Madrid and holds a Master´s degree in International Relations from New York University and another in International Financial, Commercial and Tax Law from the London School of Economics & Political Science. He is a Corporate Law professor at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid and is author of various research publications.

Gómez-Jordana has led some of the largest cross-border M&A and finance deals in Spain, and holds one of the DLA Piper´s highest track record, with an aggregate amount of €71.9 billion in 24 deals, according to TTR. He has advised in Atlantia, Sacyr, Iberdrola, Banco Santander, Imperial Tobacco-Altadis and ICO deals among others, some of them representing multi-billion transactions. His most significant deals in 2020 have been advising Iberdrola on its AUD893 million takeover of Infigen Energy, and assisting Atlantia with Cellnex repurchase negotiation, both reported by Iberian Lawyer.

He leaves now the firm and launches his own legal boutique in Madrid, Alarde Abogados, along with other independent lawyers, in Madrid´s Salamanca district (Claudio Coello).
