Javier Ybáñez and Ernesto Jiménez are set to take up their new duties as the Heads of Garrigues’ Corporate/Commercial and Tax Law Departments, respectively. They will occupy the posts left vacant by Fernando Vives and Ricardo Gómez-Barreda, who became the Firm’s Managing Partners on September 1.

The Litigation Department will be headed by Carlos de los Santos, following the retirement of Miguel Moscardó. The last appointment fell to Manuel Torres, who will be at the helm of the Maritime Law Department, succeeding Manuel González, who is also retiring. In addition to these appointments, Antonio Fernández was named partner in charge of the recently created Restructuring & Insolvency Department.

The appointments were unveiled this morning by Fernando Vives and Ricardo Gómez-Barreda at the presentation of Garrigues’ third annual Corporate Social Responsibility Report. The Report, for the 2008 fiscal year, describes in detail the Firm’s commitments under the three pillars (economic, social and environmental) constituting sustainable development. Garrigues is the only Spanish law firm (and one of a handful worldwide) to publish an annual CSR Report. The document can be viewed on the Firm’s website. (www.garrigues.com)
