Squire Patton Boggs has added a four-lawyer, partner-led private equity and M&A team to its corporate practice in Madrid.

Private equity lawyer Carlos Blanco, who led Spanish law firm RocaJunyent’s corporate and M&A department in Madrid and was the office’s managing partner from 2017 to 2020, has joined the now-twenty-lawyer corporate department at Squire and brought with him three team members: senior associate Javier Arenas and associates Elena Ferrer and Iñigo Oliván.
