Andersen Tax & Legal welcomes Luis Cortezo as a Partner in the Litigation, Insolvency and Arbitration department of the Madrid office, thus reinforcing the capacities in the area headed by Íñigo Rodríguez-Sastre, which is one of the firm's most important areas of expertise.

His professional experience is also linked to the world of arbitration and he has extensive experience in both national and international arbitrations, administered by the main arbitration courts.

Managing Partner of Andersen Tax & Legal in Spain, Jaime Olleros, values the incorporation and said, “It is a clear commitment of the firm to an area that requires greater capacity both nationally and internationally. It is in line with our growth plan, not only territorial but also increasing capacities.” Specifically, he stressed that Luis Cortezo is "a great asset for the firm, which continues to develop the litigation and arbitration practice to place it among the leading firms in the sector.”
