Raquel Lucas Joins Butler Snow in New York

Butler Snow is pleased to announce that Raquel Lucas has joined Butler Snow’s New York office, and will practice with the firm’s pharmaceutical, medical device and healthcare litigation group.

“Raquel brings expertise in pharmaceutical and health care arbitration and litigation to our firm,”said Donald Clark Jr., chairman, Butler Snow. “We’re excited to have Raquel join our team, and expand our New York office.”

Lucas previously served as international case counsel for the International Centre for Dispute Resolution (ICDR) of the American Arbitration Association (AAA). In her former role, Lucas managed arbitration proceedings, including reviewing arbitration clauses and awards, assisting neutrals and parties in the interpretation and compliance of ICDR and other AAA rules, evaluating arbitrator challenges, preparing lists of arbitrators and reviewing neutrals’ orders. Lucas also has previous practice experience in litigation and arbitration. She has represented major financial institutions in civil litigation proceedings in Spain.

Lucas received her undergraduate degree from Colegio Universitario de Estudios Financieros (CUNEF) in Madrid. She received an LL.M. from Instituto de Empresa Law School in 2013 and an LL.M. from University of Chicago in 2015. She is admitted to practice in Spain and New York.

With increasingly complex regulatory and policy challenges in the pharmaceutical, medical device and healthcare industry, comes the corresponding need for businesses to have at their disposal sound legal guidance and effective counsel to manage ongoing legal exposure and resultant multi-district litigation. Butler Snow’s Pharmaceutical, Medical Device and Healthcare Industry team provides clients with a comprehensive, multidisciplinary legal team to minimize legal exposure, litigate through resolution, and handle crisis management. Few firms in the United States have been called upon as often as our firm to serve as local, regional or national counsel in significant pharmaceutical, medical device and healthcare cases. Butler Snow’s litigators play leading roles in federal multi-district proceedings and try a broad range of cases, including bellwether cases.
