Ashurst has appointed its Spanish office's managing partner, Jorge Vázquez, as a new member of its global executive committee. He is the first Spaniard to join the firm's global governing body.
Ashurst's executive committee consists of 16 members in total (9 men and 7 women), appointed by the firm's global managing partner, Paul Jenkins, who also leads this team.
In May, it will be two years since Jorge Vázquez was appointed to lead Ashurst's Spanish office, replacing María José Menéndez. He specializes in mergers and acquisitions, venture capital, restructuring and special situations, as well as corporate, joint venture and contractual matters. He also leads the private equity practice in Madrid.
