DACB appoints Guillén Madrid partner

International law firm DAC Beachcroft has appointed Pablo Guillén as a partner in the firm’s global insurance practice in Madrid.

Mr Guillén, who returns to DACB after eight years as a partner with Clyde and Co, has specialised in all aspects of financial institutions and D&O claims throughout his legal career, advising on major domestic and international cases.

Mr Guillén specialises in advising Spanish and foreign insurance and reinsurance companies on D&O, public offering securities insurance, bankers blanket bond, commercial crime and professional indemnity claims under Spanish law. His practice includes drafting and adapting policies to Spanish law.

“Pablo has been a dominant figure in the Spanish and international insurance markets for many years, with an outstanding reputation for his D&O and FI expertise,” commented José María Álvarez-Cienfuegos, location head of DACB’s Madrid office. “We’re thrilled that he is returning to the firm.”

Gustavo Blanco, DACB’s international development director, said, “We have bold plans to continue growing our international insurance business and when presented with the right opportunities to build long-term, profitable and sustainable growth, we will take them. Pablo’s exemplary credentials and connections bring us the D&O and FI claims expertise that, added to the breadth of claims work we already handle, will enable DACB Madrid to become one of the most diversified insurance practices in the Spanish market.”

Mr Guillén added, “DAC Beachcroft has been steadily building its reputation in the Spanish market and I have been consistently impressed with its ambitious growth plans and determination to become the leading international insurance law firm in Spain. I’m excited to be returning to the firm and look forward to working with the team to develop our offering further.”
