Cuatrecasas has bolstered its regional presence in Spain with the hire of two partners and an office launch in the Basque Country.
Cuatrecasas has hired Luis Murillo as a litigation partner in the Zaragoza office from the Corporación Aragonesa de Radio y Televisión, where he was director of legal affairs.
In Barcelona the firm has boosted its tax practice with the hire of Joan Hortalá, who was previously the chief inspector for the tax authorities in the region.
Cuatrecasas has also opened its first office in Vitoria, capital of the Basque province of Álava.
The office is the firm’s third in the Basque Country and comprises a four-lawyer team headed by corporate partner José María de Lorenzo.
Cuatrecasas’s Basque practice is headed by corporate and tax specialist Antón Pérez-Iriondo, leading a team of 50 lawyers.
