Garrigues's Overview

Founded in 1941, Garrigues is both the foremost global legal services firm in the Iberian Peninsula (Spain and Portugal) and the firm with the longest-standing tradition. As a result of sustained growth throughout the last six decades, it is today the leading firm in terms of number of professionals and billings.

This well-established position as market leader can only be maintained if all of the Firm’s professionals and employees continually strive to excel.

Our human resources (the largest and most multi-disciplinary team in the Iberian Peninsula) and our unmistakable international calling enable us to offer our clients integral advisory services across four continents, encompassing all tax and legal matters. Our services bear a “distinctive hallmark”, which embodies our commitment to quality, client service, ethical values and a solid business approach which has rewarded us with an impressive client portfolio.

Nonetheless, the source of our pride lies not so much in impressive figures but rather in the achievement of a truly sound business model and the internal organization of our work, as well as our strong commitment to the ongoing training of our professionals, the appropriate assignment of resources in order to offer services of the highest standard, and in the proven ability of our team to continuously improve efficiency and keep one step ahead for the benefit of our clients.
