The UC3M presents the Deloitte Legal Chair of Business Law


The Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) and Deloitte Legal have agreed on the creation of the Deloitte Legal Chair of Business Law, with the objective of encouraging training and study in relation to the different legislations that govern business activity in all fields, including commercial matters, transactions, regulations and those of corporate governance or arbitrage.

This initiative will likewise promote the development of training programmes, particularly those related to the Master in International Advocacy, Moot Madrid and the activities in the field of Commercial Law at the UC3M.

This agreement is made with the objective of becoming a project whose results are to be reflected in the legal sector, at an academic and corporate level. With this aim, as well as the study and analysis of the national, European and international rule framework, the Chair will especially highlight the divulgation of the conclusions. To do so, it will allocate some of its resources to the publication of books and reports, the organisation of conferences and lectures and, ultimately, the spread of knowledge resulting from their research.

The act of signing the agreement took place on the UC3M’s Getafe Campus, in the presence of the president, Juan Romo, and the managing partner responsible for Tax and Legal Practice at Deloitte, Luis Fernando Guerra. Juan Romo has expressed “his satisfaction by the signature of the chair, which allows a close agreement between the University and Deloitte Legal with the objective of creating a research environment for carrying out academic activities and legal dissemination in a discipline as important in the lives of companies as Commercial Law. In addition, it is an excellent opportunity to strengthen the training of jurists in any field related to business law”.

On the other hand, Luis Fernando Guerra has highlighted the suitability of the moment in which the chair starts “for the need to set up a space of theoretical reflection and practical development. The increasingly complex regulatory framework that companies face justifies the dedication of human and material resources to their analysis and study. Carrying out this task with the academic support of the UC3M allows us to get involved in the students’ work, as it will be them that will act as consultants to businesses in the future”.

This Chair, co-directed by lecturer Pilar Perales Viscasillas from the UC3M’s Department of Private Law, and responsible partner in the field of Corporate M&A Legal at Deloitte Legal, Sharon Izaguirre Gómez, relies on the Academic Council with representatives in the legal field from different companies, such as: Santander Group; the Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Services of Madrid; the Colegio de Abogados de Madrid (Lawyer College of Madrid); Iberdrola; Mapfre and Telefónica.
