Anaford’s Spanish / LatAm Teams promote from within
This appointment is in recognition of Borja’s widely recognized expertise in advising domestic and international Private Clients as well as his vast experience on corporate tax, non-residents tax and accounting law within Spanish and Latin American jurisdictions. He further possesses extensive knowledge in diverse corporate restructuring, real estate investment and private equity transactions. Anaford consider themselves fortunate to be able to promote a lawyer with such a deep knowledge of cross-jurisdictional requirements and proceedings that have developed out of Borja’s long experience in the practice of tax law with Anaford as well as within the Legal and Tax Department of a Big 4 accountancy firm and one of Spain’s most prestigious law firms.
As Partner, Borja will be looking to expand further upon our existing client base of international companies, companies’ groups and financial entities with distinct focus on general tax planning strategies, corporate income tax, indirect taxation and tax proceedings. “Consolidating our presence in Switzerland, Spain and the U.S. and continuing our international growth is an attractive challenge for Anaford and personally one I find immensely enjoyable” said Borja López Pol. “Overseas expansion represents a logical development bearing in mind Anaford´s DNA. The main reason of our growth and success is the search of the excellence in our services and relationships with clients. I look forward to the opportunity of assisting in this continued growth both through the care for and growth of our client base as well as the jurisdictional reach of the Firm.”
“For us it is very important to build a trusted home for top passionate professionals because it is the only way to deliver high quality service for all our clients,” said Jennifer Mayo, the co-head of Anaford’s Spanish / Latin American tax practice. “Borja has demonstrated himself to be a great example of a highly qualified and passionate lawyer and his work represents a significant contribution to the development of our team and the success of our clients. We feel very proud of have him on board.”
To this Enrique Lucas, the Partner in Anaford’s Valencia office, added: “Borja has been a strong connection between the Valencia and Zurich offices in offering our private and corporate clients the cross-jurisdictional expertise on which they come to rely on from Anaford. We are certain that Borja will be a valuable addition to the Management Team as his skills and knowledge are closely allied to Anaford’s global vision.”
Concerning his new position Borja said: “I feel extremely honored and privileged to become a Partner at Anaford. I would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank all the members of Anaford for their support since I became part of this special and multicultural team. I am aware of the importance of this appointment and feel certain that I can substantially contribute to the achievement of Anaford’s global vision and core values.”
