Uría Menéndez commenced its activities in the City of London at the beginning of the 1990s, setting-up a permanent office in 1992. We have greatly benefitted from our long-term presence in this important financial capital by witnessing first-hand how trends begin and new products develop in the market.
Our London office provides comprehensive legal advice on Spanish and Portuguese law to our UK-based clients, and acts as a link to our network of offices around the world. Our lawyers also have close ties with other European and US firms in London.
We mainly advise on capital markets, banking law, restructuring, private equity, and international M&A. We also advise on real estate, tax and labour law matters, and over the last few years have worked on important transactions involving ports and shipping.
Our clients include commercial and investment banks, private equity firms, hedge funds and leading UK and international companies.
In 2008, the well-known UK legal publication Legal Week named us “London Office of the Year”.
