Raimundo Ortega focuses on competition in the energy, telecom, and infrastructure sectors, where he also has extensive regulatory experience.

For more than 20 years, he has represented foreign and domestic clients such as Aberdeen, Bombardier, ACIE, Axpo, CaixaBank, EDF, Endesa, Engie, Cintra, IBM, Naturgy, Orange, Prysmian, KPN, SES, and Total before national and EU institutions on competition and regulatory matters.

On the competition front, he is currently advising on several cartel investigations, including leniency applications, before the Spanish Competition Authority and the Supreme Court and also on damage claims.
