The move strengthens the firm's global M&A practice
White & Case LLP has expanded its global mergers & acquisitions practice with the addition of Javier Monzón as a partner in Madrid.
"Our Madrid office work closely with offices across the firm on landmark transactions for large Spanish and international listed corporates, and further strengthening our M&A team there is important for the overall growth and success of our practice," said White & Case partner John Reiss, head of the global mergers & acquisitions practice. "The arrival of Javier will add depth to our existing team in Madrid as well as expand our global offering so that we can best assist clients on their complex, cross border transactions."
Monzón advises global financial sponsors, corporates and financial institutions on cross-border and domestic mergers & acquisitions, including private equity transactions, as well as on restructurings and general corporate matters. He also has experience advising corporates and investment institutions, both for issuers and underwriters, on capital markets transactions in the context of equity offerings in Spain.
"Javier is a senior M&A partner with significant experience and a strong reputation in the Spanish market," said White & Case partner Nathalie Negre-Eveillard, "As well as strengthening our M&A practice in Madrid and EMEA, Javier will work closely with the Madrid banking team on related acquisition finance."
Monzón brings 18 years of experience, most recently working at Freshfields, where he was a partner.
Partner Oliver Brettle, a member of White & Case's global executive committee, added: "Spain is an important European economy and our Madrid office also plays a central role as the link between the firm's Latin American and European practices, providing clients with seamless cross-border advice and a global perspective. Javier’s arrival will further strengthen and expand the capabilities of our Madrid office and sends a clear message to the market that we are investing in Madrid for the long haul."
