Pérez-Llorca today announced the appointment of Jesús Cudero as Of Counsel for the Tax practice area.
Cudero, a Senior Judge on leave of absence from the Second Section of the Administrative Chamber of the Supreme Court, has 35 years of experience in the legal sector. He became a judge in 1987 and since then has held seats in a number of different courts, such as the High Court of Madrid and the Administrative Chamber of the National High Court. In 2014 he was promoted to the rank of Senior Judge of the Supreme Court, where he has served in the Administrative Chamber, specifically in the Fourth and First (admission) Sections. He currently serves in the Second Section, dealing with tax matters.
Cudero is joining Pérez-Llorca’s Tax team to strengthen the areas of litigation in general and taxation in particular. The importance of the cassation appeal, which with its actual configuration has shown itself to be key in the legal panorama and in the current procedural system, means that Cudero’s appointment to Pérez-Llorca represents a significant asset and a distinguishing feature.
In the words of Clara Jiménez, partner in charge of Pérez-Llorca’s Tax practice area, “Jesús’ appointment strengthens an essential area for the economic and legal system of our country, and one which is becoming increasingly important for the Firm’s clients. It is an honour that a professional of Jesús’ standing has joined our project to ensure its continued growth with the legal quality we strive for”.
