Ramón y Cajal Abogados is rebuilding itself after the departure of its partner head of Real Estate, Roberto Tojo Thomas de Carranza, who left for Dentons a few weeks ago. As reported by El Confidencial, the firm headed by Francisco Palá has closed the hiring of Miguel Ferre, from Hogan Lovells, who joins as a new partner to lead the firm’s Real Estate practice. Ferre joins the firm together with associate Jaime Gutiérrez, and another lawyer.
Ferre has almost nine years of experience in the real estate sector. After taking the civil service exams, he began his professional career in the Real Estate department of Clifford Chance in 2013 (where he coincided with Roberto Tojo). Two and a half years later, he made the leap to Ashurst, where he remained until September 2019, when he joined Hogan Lovells. He is a Law graduate from the Universidad Pontificia Comillas-ICADE, and holds a Master’s degree in Land Planning, Urban Planning and Environment from the Universidad CEU-San Pablo, as well as a course in Finance from the CEF.
Ferre will head the Real Estate department of Ramón y Cajal Abogados, which includes partners Alfonso Cárcamo and Francisco Bengoetxea. With this signing, the firm is trying to get back on track after the departure of Tojo, who was accompanied in his departure to Dentons by four professionals, Francisco Jiménez Alarcón, José Ramón Pérez Álvarez-Robles, Gumersindo Clemente Tijeras and Francisco de Bonilla Díaz.
