Garrigues Lawyers: 2013 Corporate Presentation


Published on

Garrigues is the Iberian Peninsula’s leading tax and legal services firm in terms of professional headcount and billings. We know the industry inside out and provide value added to each and every one of our clients.

Our history dates back to 1941, when brothers Joaquín and Antonio Garrigues Díaz-Cañabate founded the law firm J&A Garrigues, which went on to amass enormous prestige in the second half of the 20th century. Following the merger with Arthur Andersen, Asesores Legales y Tributarios (ALT) in 1997, the Firm took its place among Europe’s largest and most influential practices. In 2002, in the wake of the disappearance of the Andersen Worldwide network, Garrigues opted to continue as an independent concern and embarked on a new phase, marked by the business-first approach and global vision that have made the Firm the market leader.
