Our services

Strategic legal advice

Individuals and companies usually require legal guidance in the decision-making processes. Whether it is a business venture, an internal governance matter or the negotiation of interests, we offer our clients our professional knowledge based on the study of their business model. Law should be a vehicle to facilitate commercial, economic or institutional management. In this sense, our understanding of the law from the academic field, as lawyers and the position that we have had to play in advising authorities at the highest level -in the Executive and in Parliament- enables us to offer our clients, whether in the private or public sector, regulatory solutions aimed at achieving their strategic objectives. Considering the diversity of businesses and needs of our clients, we work in alliance with professionals from different disciplines who provide the relevant theoretical and methodological elements to each case.
