Pinsents and former Spanish best friend conclude lawsuit
Pinsent Masons and its former Spanish best friend law firm Ramón & Cajal have reached a conclusion in their lawsuit from 2016.
After failed merger talks, Pinsents hired four of Ramón’s lawyers: Antonio Sánchez Montero, Idoya Arteagabeitia, Diego Lozano, and Inmaculada Castelló. Ramón alleged that these hires were in violation of a no-hiring provision set forth during the merger talks.
During the suit Ramón was represented by Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan co-head Richard East. Pinsents turned to James Levy, a partner at Ashurst and Thomas Croxford, Blackstone Chambers barrister.
