Pérez-Llorca will move its London office to one of the capital’s most emblematic areas, Mayfair, in the next few weeks. The new location will be 17 Hill Street, in a district of London where a large number of the international funds the Firm works with regularly are located.
This change of location follows the addition of three new lawyers to the office, who alongside Álvaro Ramírez de Haro, resident partner for the Firm’s office in the UK capital, will strengthen links with major investors, financial institutions and law firms.
According to Álvaro Ramírez de Haro, “the decision to change the location of our office from the City to Mayfair is in response to the increasingly significant amount of work that we carry out with large funds, the majority of which are located in London’s West End. Our close relationship with investment funds is one of the main reasons for Pérez-Llorca’s success and the London office now plays a key role in generating and carrying out this work. The office’s interaction with funds is constant, and as such it makes sense to us to move closer to their decision-making centres and further strengthen our links with them. This change also helps us stand out from our competitors and reflects Pérez-Llorca’s position as a leading firm in Spain for large international investment funds”.
Pérez-Llorca’s London headquarters were opened in 2014 as the Firm’s first office overseas. Since then, the Firm has advised its clients on the Spanish law aspects of their transactions in order to strengthen the quality of service to their international clients. This office also redoubles the Firm’s efforts for commercial development in London, one of the main centres of financial and capital markets transactions in the world.
The actual change of location is expected to take place in December, once the work on the new office is completed.
