Corporate partner Javier Gómez has been named as the new resident partner at Pérez-Llorca’s New York office. He replaces Iván Delgado, who established the subsidiary in 2015, and who is now returning to the Madrid office after completing his tenure abroad.
Gómez joined Pérez-Llorca in 2009 and made partner in 2018. He has a degree in Law and Business Administration from Universidad Carlos III de Madrid and a master’s degree in International Business Administration (ICEX) from the Centre of Studies for Economy and Trade (CECO). He has extensive experience in M&A transactions for both listed and unlisted companies, working for industrial companies and investment funds, as well as in capital markets transactions such as listings on the stock exchange, takeover bids and capital increases. Gómez is recognised by the following directories: Best Lawyers®, under Corporate and Mergers and Acquisitions Law and Private Equity Law; Leaders League, under Capital Markets; and Euromoney IFLR1000, under Corporate M&A and Capital Markets. Additionally, in 2020 he was recognised as the best M&A lawyer on the Iberian Peninsula at the “40 under Forty” awards for Iberian Lawyer.
Gómez will continue the work that Iván Delgado began in New York in 2015 of forging closer ties with US funds and companies, in addition to accompanying the Firm’s clients in their operations in these territories, and advising them on all matters related to Spanish law from the office located in the Seagram Building on Park Avenue.
Iván Delgado will continue to advise domestic and foreign clients on their commercial transactions from the firm’s Madrid office, tasks that he will combine with his responsibilities in Pérez-Llorca’s international practice. With a degree in Law from the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid and a master’s degree for Access to the Legal Professions from the same institution, Delgado joined Pérez-Llorca in 1999 and made partner in 2007. He is specialised in mergers and acquisitions, private equity transactions and general corporate and commercial matters. He regularly advises Spanish and international groups on large, transnational commercial law transactions in a diverse number of sectors. Delgado is recognised in Chambers Global for the practice of Corporate M&A under ‘Expertise Based Abroad in Spain – US’ and in Best Lawyers® under Corporate and Mergers and Acquisitions Law and Private Equity Law.
Pérez-Llorca’s international commitment continues through its New York and London offices, from where it will continue to intensify its relationships with large companies and funds, as well as with leading law firms in each region.
