Alfonso Ventoso joined Uría Menéndez in September 2002. Prior to this, he amassed experience in real estate law and litigation, and worked in London in the insolvency department of a UK firm.

From January to July 2009, he was seconded to Davis Polk & Wardwell in New York, where he was assigned to the capital markets practice group as part of the firm’s foreign temporary associates programme.

Mr Ventoso’s practice is focused mainly on equity capital markets (including listings and delistings, public offerings and block-trades), and on providing general advice to investment firms, banks and listed companies on the regulatory aspects relating to securities markets and corporate governance.

In addition, he has ample expertise in M&A deals involving both listed and financial companies, and the issue of debt securities, especially hybrid instruments.
