  8. 8. www.gmqabogados.com 8 GMQ advantages GMQ lawyers have grown professionally practising in large firms and in the area of major matters, but we believe strongly in the value of small-scale.

Our cohesive, agile, skilled and experienced multidisciplinary team ensures maximum effectiveness and efficiency in complex matters. These are the advantages of working with us: HIGH PERFORMANCE Our philosophy is simple: we provide maximum effectiveness and efficiency in our services in order to achieve high performance in those services for our clients. To this end, we do not delegate management and control of the matters. All matters are managed and controlled directly by a partner at the firm who will be fully involved in the case. EXPERIENCE Solid and proven experience in providing comprehensive advice in transactions, restructuring, consultancy to companies and advising on conflict resolution. EXPERTISE Expert advice on large-scale or highly complex commercial transactions and procedural matters. EXCELLENCE We insist on avoiding standardised systems and offer customised solutions that can only be achieved by being fully involved in all related matters.
