Simmons announces new global head of Practices and Markets

Simmons & Simmons has announced the promotion of Melisa Rojas as its new head of Practices and Markets

-

A Law graduate from the Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (Peru) and the Universidad de Ávila (Spain), Rojas holds a Law Master’s degree in Corporate Finance from the University of Westminster (London) and a Marketing Management Programme from ESADE, which has led her to hold senior positions in marketing teams at leading law firms in recent years.

Rojas joined Simmons in 2016 to head up the firm’s Marketing and Business Development department in the Madrid office. Subsequently, in 2019, she leapt to an international position as head of Marketing for the Financial Markets area at a global level, which until then had been led from the London headquarters.

This promotion means that, from now on, she will lead and coordinate all the Marketing teams in Simmons’ offices around the world (22) as well as the teams that support the firm’s four main practice areas (Financial Markets, Employment, Dispute Resolution, and Corporate & Commercial), approximately 43 people.

Rojas will remain in the Madrid office while holding this international position, reflecting Simmons & Simmons’ international commitment to the Spanish market. “I am very happy and excited about the promotion, this is a new challenge that I accept with great enthusiasm. The fact that I have been entrusted with this role at a time when the firm is aiming to become a next-generation law firm demonstrates Simmons’ clear focus on professional development and internal promotion of employees, as well as its commitment to the internalisation of the firm,” said Melisa Rojas on her promotion.
