With the promotion of Villarroya, who until now has held the position of counsel, the firm strengthens in Spain a strategic practice for the firm on a global level.
With a degree in Law and a Master’s degree in Corporate Legal Consultancy from IE Law School, she began her professional career as a lawyer in the legal department of Vocento, after which she joined the Banking and Finance department of Gómez-Acebo & Pombo. Villarroya has also worked as a senior manager in the area of Banking and Finance and Corporate Law at EY.
In July 2018 she joined Eversheds Sutherland, where she has been involved in all types of financing transactions, mainly advising financial entities, both national and international. In this way, throughout her professional career, Villarroya has acquired extensive and proven experience in advising on project finance -especially in solar photovoltaic projects-, infrastructure, and asset finance.
Jacobo Martínez, Eversheds Spain managing partner, highlighted Villarroya’s appointment as an example of “the firm’s firm commitment to promoting the professional careers of our lawyers based on meritocratic criteria. We are convinced that Teresa’s experience and extensive knowledge of the financial market is a great asset for the firm and will help us to continue promoting an area in continuous growth such as Banking and Finance”, he added.
