Recognised as one of the leading arbitrators and litigators in Spain, Cainzos was appointed as president of the Madrid International Arbitration Centre (Centro Internacional de Arbitraje de Madrid) in 2019.
Cainzos, who officially left Clifford Chance last week, had been head of the firm’s Madrid litigation and arbitration department since 1998.
Between 1994 and 1998, he was head of Baker McKenzie’s Madrid litigation department.

Last week, Clifford Chance announced that Fernando Irurzun had been appointed partner in charge of the litigation and arbitration department of Clifford Chance in Spain to replace Cainzos.
