A Global Firm

Garrigues is one of the longest-standing and most prestigious firms in the Iberian legal profession. Since it was founded in 1941, it has been a byword for innovation and has played an active role in Spanish legal life and in the principal legal reforms that have taken place. This leading position has been achieved thanks to Garrigues’ multidisciplinary team of professionals. The firm is the largest in Iberian Peninsula, with 1,963 highly-qualified professionals capable of offering clients the integral tax and legal services they need, anywhere in the world.
