November 17, 2020

Carolina Albuerne has been selected by the prestigious British publication the Global Banking Regulation Review (GBRR), part of the leading editorial group Law Business Research, as one of the best lawyers in the world under 45 years old working in banking regulation. Carolina is the only Spaniard included in this prestigious ranking.

Isabel Aguilar, a lawyer in the firm’s Finance team, has also received an important acknowledgement as one of the six finalists who fell just short of being included in the final list.

The 45 individuals selected for this ranking – 18 women and 27 men under 45 years old – come from 18 jurisdictions and a wide variety of backgrounds.

The selection process involved two phases. GBRR readers and subscribers first nominated their candidates, with support and review by the journal’s editorial team. The list obtained was then submitted to a voting process among colleagues in the sector and thorough investigation by the GBRR team.
