Carlos de la Pedraja, new Global Corporate Director


The news has been widely reported by the media.

ONTIER, within the framework of the strategic transformation it has been promoting, has incorporated Carlos de la Pedraja y García-Cosio as its new Global Corporate Director.

With more than twenty years of expertise in strategic and executive management, Carlos de la Pedraja will take on the firm’s global corporate management with the goal of ensuring that the firm's business model is implemented homogeneously and efficiently in all countries, to ensure the execution of ONTIER's strategic plans in all its offices, as well as to continue improving the operational management processes in all its offices.

For the firm, this is a very important step to continue moving forward in the maximum strategic and cultural cohesion of all offices, in their operational efficiency and in the professionalisation of the organisation's management.

Carlos de la Pedraja has been, until now, Vice-Dean and General Manager of IE Law School, and has played a key role in its strategic direction, as well as in IE's international expansion and the opening of new markets.

He holds a degree in Law and a MA in Human Resources Management and a MA in Corporate Legal Consultancy, both from IE Business School. He is also a professor of Talent Management in Senior Management programmes and in the Human Resources Area at IE University.

Carlos de la Pedraja has pointed out that 'the fundamental challenge will be to take ONTIER's DNA as a global law firm to the next dimension, working in depth on the professionalisation of some processes, and further enhancing our hallmarks. I would love ONTIER to be, more than ever, an absolutely differential firm for our clients, and one in which our lawyers can continue to dream and develop their full potential.'

The incorporation of Carlos de la Pedraja adds to those already made in recent months in other areas such as Innovation and Technology or Human Resources, so that ONTIER has the best professionals in the management of all these areas that are a fundamental support for the development of its activity.
