Who's Who Legal Competition: Future Leaders - Partners

Henar González Durantez is a partner in Herbert Smith Freehills' Madrid office where she leads the competition team. Henar has extensive experience in competition law on both a Spanish and European scale, with a special focus on compliance, mergers and acquisitions, cartel investigations, dawn raids and abuses of dominant position. Her experience encompasses a broad range of sectors, with deep experience in distribution, consumer goods, digital markets and energy, among others.

Henar successfully defended a leading multinational company in an extensive cartel investigation before the European Commission and a leading telecom and TV operator in a number of abuse of dominant position investigations before the Spanish competition authority. She has been involved in phase II merger control proceedings that were ultimately cleared without commitments and has helped clients design and implement joint purchase arrangements and other collaboration agreements in full compliance with competition rules.

According to the most reputed legal directories, Henar is one of Spain's leading lawyers in competition law and was among the Iberian Lawyer's “40 Under 40” in 2013. Henar has recently been recognised with the InspiraLaw Top 50 Women award.

Henar frequently speaks at courses and seminars at universities and business schools and has co-authored a number of collective works and written many articles on competition law for the specialised legal press.

WWL says: Henar González Durántez is a leading competition lawyer who comes highly recommended for her "clear advice" and commercial understanding.
