Albella will join the Magic Circle firm as a Corporate partner. According to the firm and as reported by El Confidencial, his return is scheduled for mid-December, at which time he will no longer be subject to any restrictions arising from his time at the CNMV. With more than 30 years’ experience in private practice and in the public sector, Albella joins the Magic Circle’s corporate team, which is made up of highly recognised professionals in the sector, such as Víctor Manchado, Lara Hemzaoui, Carmen Burgos and Esteban Arza. José Giménez, managing partner of Linklaters in Spain, highlighted the firm’s delight at Sebastián’s return home. “His commitment to our project shows that it is one of the most attractive in the market. Having the best lawyers who share our culture and values continues to be a priority objective.” The enthusiasm is also shared by Albella: “Linklaters is the firm of my life. I couldn’t say no. I am returning home with the intention of contributing to its continued success in the Spanish market,” he said. For his part, the partner in charge of the M&A practice at Linklaters in Spain, Víctor Manchado, said that the incorporation of Albella “will place our practice in an unrivalled position in advising listed companies and Public M&A transactions.” Sebastián Albella is one of Spain’s leading Corporate and Financial lawyers in Spain, and until December 2020, he chaired the Spanish National Securities Market Commission (CNMV).
