Uría Menéndez, awarded by Chambers and IFLR

Uría Menéndez has received several important international awards in recent days for its work during the last year. Last Thursday, the firm was twice awarded at the IFLR European Awards held in London when it received the "Most Innovative Firm of the Year Award in Spain" and the "Best Restructuring of the Year" for its role advising in the restructuring of Abengoa. Also, on Friday, the British editorial Chambers & Partners granted the firm with the "Best Client Service" award in Spain at the Chambers Europe Awards ceremony held at the Intercontinental hotel in Madrid.

While this is the fourth time that the firm wins the IFLR award, after having won it in the 2008, 2009 and 2012 editions, this is the first time that Uría Menéndez receives the "Client Service” award from Chambers and Partners. The verdict of this last award is the result of the information gathered about the firms through the personal interviews carried out with the clients by a large team of analysts. Uría Menéndez was already awarded as "Best Firm of the Year" in Spain by this editorial in the first award ceremony in 2008 and, subsequently, in 2010, 2011 and 2016.

Luis de Carlos, managing partner of Uría Menéndez, has highly valued these awards: "The good results of 2017 have marked a historic year for the Firm, in which we have managed to maintain an excellent growth rate. These awards highlight the great work that the members of the Firm have developed over the past year and should be an incentive for us to continue striving to offer an excellent service to our clients."
