Pérez-Llorca expands its management structure with the appointment of Julio Lujambio as Executive Partner and Iván Delgado as International Executive Partner

Pedro Pérez-Llorca, 55, continues as Managing Partner of the Firm. With these appointments, the Firm expands its management structure and prepares to provide the Firm with the necessary support for its strong growth and expansion. Pérez-Llorca expects to close 2023 with a five-fold increase in sales over the last 10 years.

Pérez-Llorca expands its management structure with the creation of two new executive positions and the consequent appointment of two partners to hold them. The objective is to provide a firm support on which to sustain and manage its strong growth and expansion.

The Firm’s Board of Directors has appointed Julio Lujambio, Executive Partner, and Iván Delgado, International Executive Partner. Julio Lujambio’s duties as Executive Partner include supporting the development of strategy and direction in Spain. Iván Delgado, as International Executive Partner, will be in charge of building and directing the Firm’s international strategy and operations.

Both will continue to work under the direction of Pedro Pérez-Llorca, who remains as Managing Partner of the Firm. All three will report to the Firm’s Board of Directors, of which they have been members since December 2020, and will combine their new responsibilities with the practice of law as they have been doing until now.

Julio Lujambio joined Pérez-Llorca in 2005 and was named partner in 2014. Qualified to advise on both Spanish and Mexican law, he specializes in M&A and Capital Markets transactions. Among others, Lujambio has advised on transactions involving the acquisition of shares and assets of listed and unlisted companies, investment agreements, shareholders’ agreements, joint ventures, public offerings (IPOs, IPOs and IPOs) and listing of shares in official and alternative markets.

Iván Delgado joined Pérez-Llorca in 1999 and became a partner in 2007. He specializes in mergers and acquisitions of listed and unlisted companies. He advises both industrial groups and funds on large-scale, transnational transactions in various sectors, especially in Latin America. In 2015, he was entrusted with the opening of Pérez-Llorca’s New York office, where he worked until 2020. Since then, she coordinates all the Firm’s international action.

Along with Pérez-Llorca, Delgado and Lujambio, the Firm’s management team is completed by Constanza Vergara, Partner and Chief Operating Officer (COO), as well as María Luisa de Landecho, Chief Financial Officer (CFO), who maintain their responsibilities within the Firm’s management.

"The appointments of Julio Lujambio and Iván Delgado are part of the succession process of the Firm’s governing bodies," said Pedro Pérez-Llorca, Managing Partner of the Firm.

The growth experienced in the national and international market in the last decade forces us to look to the future and provide the Firm with a firm structure to achieve the challenges we set ourselves", says Pérez-Llorca.

These appointments come after a remarkable growth, both in the Firm’s sales and in the number of offices. Pérez-Llorca expects to close the year at around 124 million euros, which would mean having quintupled sales in the last 10 years. The result would mean maintaining its double-digit growth in 2023. This rapid growth has led it to be highlighted by the prestigious international publication The Lawyer as one of the European law firms that has increased its sales the most (116.9 %), in the period 2018-2022.

On the other hand, during the last fiscal year, in addition to taking the decision to expand its offices in London and New York, and to open a new one in Singapore, with which, together with Brussels, it covers the three world financial capitals and the European regulatory capital, it took a further step in its internationalization and announced the opening of a new office in Lisbon, which already has more than 25 professionals practicing Portuguese law.

In addition, the Firm achieved excellent results in 2023 in the rankings of M&A transactions prepared by the main national and international League Tables. In all of them, the Firm obtained the first or second position in the rankings by amount of the operations during the past year, and was ranked in the top 3 for the number of transactions advised.
