‘THE MAKER BEHIND THE MODERNIZATION’ - Cuatrecasas managing partner, Jorge Badía, has passed away unexpectedly, Law.com International’s Alex D’Elia reports. He was 59 years old. An expert lawyer in litigation and arbitration, Badía was named the firm’s managing director in 2015, and then managing partner in 2019.

Jorge Badía was the maker behind the modernization of a firm that has become one of the best international firms.”
