Strategic Plan 2020 of BROSETA

The addition of Alberto Palomar reinforces the growth project in which BROSETA is immersed through the 2020 Plan, and on the basis of which during the last months it has reached milestones such as the opening of an office in Lisbon, the integration of prestigious boutique firms such as Copa & Asociados and the incorporation of renowned professionals such as Agustín Puente, Partner in the department of Privacy, IT and Digital Environments, who recently joined the Firm from the legal management team of the Spanish Agency for Data Protection (AEPD); José Manuel Sipos, director of Competition, and Carlos Gutiérrez, director of Banking in Madrid.

For Rosa Vidal, managing partner of BROSETA, “the incorporation of Alberto consolidates our advisory capacities in matters of Administrative Law, an area where we are carrying out strategic and important projects for the main companies in the Spanish business fabric and public bodies, and which also promotes a practice, Sports Law, with extraordinary potential, and in which Alberto’s knowledge and track record will be essential to offer organisations a service of the highest excellence”.
