Linklaters competition team quits in Madrid

Linklaters has lost two-thirds of its Madrid-based competition team with two associates leaving to join Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer and Lovells.

Enrique Carrera has quit to join Freshfields, while Casto Gonzalez-Paramo has accepted a position at Lovells. Both Carrera and Gonzalez-Paramo have taken up associate roles at their new firms.

The departures left managing associate Silvia Perez-Navarro as the remaining member of the Madrid competition team.

Linklaters confirmed the departures but declined to comment further.
