A specialist in Real Estate transactions, M&A and project development and execution, with more than two decades of proven experience, he joined the firm at the end of 2022 and now joins the Palma office to promote and consolidate the real estate practice, a task he will combine with his current duties in the Barcelona office.
“We are convinced that the Palma office has a lot of potential. By taking on my new responsibilities, we want to give a boost to the Commercial and Real Estate team, as well as to Cuatrecasas’ leading position in the Balearic Islands. The economy of the archipelago has been showing great dynamism in recent years, led by the hotel and tourism sectors, which is why the firm has decided to expand the team and the office, which has been showing very significant and sustained growth since it was set up,” says Sergio Agüera about his new role within the firm.
A sector such as real estate, in continuous development in the Balearic Islands in the private sector as well as in the hotel, restaurant and leisure sectors, requires a group of professionals with expertise in commercial practice that will allow the firm to continue to be a benchmark in business law. Sergio Agüera will have a team of seven lawyers, five of them located in the Palma office and two, Aina Maragall (Real Estate and Urban Planning) and Ane Ballano (M&A), from the Barcelona office, who will receive support from the Finance and Tax area, headed by partner Daniel Coloma. For his part, lawyer Enrique Álvarez is leaving the Firm to take on other professional projects.
Javier Solá, managing partner of the Palma office, states: “The incorporation of Sergio Agüera as partner in charge of the Corporate and Commercial practice in our Palma office represents a decisive commitment by the Firm to become the firm of reference in all kinds of corporate and company transactions, with a very strong specialisation in the hotel real estate market, as well as in the private client, so characteristic of our islands.”
