On Tuesday June 7, IE Law School, with Spanish law firm Pérez-Llorca and North American firm Chadbourne & Parke, hosted a seminar focused on the future of the Spanish energy market. Held at the Metropolitan Club in New York, the event brought together top investors, legal firms, and experts of the energy sector.
The panel, “New Investment Opportunities in the Spanish Energy Market,” included Pablo Maudes, Head of Project Finance Latin America at Crédit Agricole CB; Ian Ross, Managing Director of Deutsche Bank; and José María de Paz, Partner at Pérez-Llorca. Margarita Oliva Sainz de Aja, International Partner at Chadbourne & Parke was the moderator.
“A strong regulatory frame is crucial for the energy sector,” said José María de Paz, Perez-Llorca Partner. “It’s not merely about remuneration of the investment.”
“Any arbitrary decision has to be accompanied by a government that honors the regulatory frame,” said Ian Ross, Deustche Bank Managing Director.
